What causes itching all over the body?
Q: I am 51 yrs female with about 75 kg weight. I often get itching with rashes all over my body, more on my thighs and legs. The problem is about five years old now and I have unsuccesfully tried to find out the food which may cause this allergy. For the last three years I am taking one anti-allergy tab daily. If I forget to take one, the itching starts next day. Kindly suggest a way so that I am relieved of this pain. My blood sugar and BP are normal.
A:I sincerely regret that it is not possible to answer your query based on the information provided by you. Itching can be caused by a variety of offending agents and not all of them are part of our food. I think it will be best for you to consult a doctor, preferably a dermatologist, who should be able to advise you after appropriate examination.
