Itchy Skin as a result of Dry Skin

Itchy skin is a problem that most people can identify with at some point in their lives.

In most cases, it is temporary and relatively easily treated with over-the-counter products that help to relieve the symptoms. In more longstanding cases, there is an underlying chronic skin condition like eczema, lichen, or psoriasis. This requires specialist diagnosis and skin care.

It can also be a symptom of a more serious condition such as liver disease, thyroid disease, malignancy or kidney failure. To get relief, it is important to identify the problem and treat the underlying cause. In all cases, itchy skin should not be ignored. It’s best to address the problem early to be able to help the skin restore its natural balance, moisture levels, and optimal health.
