Hello,
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

Itchy skin that isn't accompanied by other obvious skin changes, such as a rash, is most often caused by dry skin (xerosis). Skin conditions like psoriasis,dermatitis,lice,scabies and hives, internal diseases like liver and kidney disorders,diabetes, iron deficiency anemia, irritation and allergic reactions to chemicals,wool,soaps,cosmetics and certain foods can also cause itchy skin.

Treatment depends on the cause and particular treatment cannot be generalized.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
