Scratchy ( 35 ml) – Itching medicine in Ayurveda
Do you know the winter for fear of itchy skin? Also known as pruritus, itchy skin is an irritating and uncontrollable sensation that makes you want to scratch to relieve the feeling. The possible causes for itchiness range from internal illnesses, such as kidney or liver disease, to skin rashes, allergies, and dermatitis. Depending on the cause of your itchy skin, it may appear normal. Or it may be red or rough or have bumps or blisters. Repeated scratching can cause raised, thickened areas of skin that may bleed or become infected. Itchiness can be generalized (all over the body) or localized to one small region or spot. The possible causes are numerous and varied. It may be a result of something very serious, such as kidney failure or diabetes (though uncommon), or can come from something less severe, such as dry skin or insect bites (more likely). It’s important to see a doctor for itchiness if the cause isn’t obvious. A doctor can find the underlying cause which is important for effective treatment. Itching skin can affect the quality of your life. Prolonged itching and scratching may increase the intensity of the itch, possibly leading to skin injury, infection, and possible scarring.
