Itching Without Rash
Welcome to this symptom guide about itching. We're sorry to hear you have this problem!
Itching is a common symptom and it can be caused by a number of different conditions. This guide will cover some of the most common, but it is not exhaustive -- rarer causes will not be covered. Itching, also called pruritus, is often associated with a rash, as with poison ivy. But this guide is about itching without a rash.
This guide is not intended to replace a face-to-face meeting with your doctor about these symptoms. In fact, many causes of itching require an in-person examination and testing. However, this guide may be particularly helpful while awaiting a visit to your doctor or after your initial evaluation.
Okay, let's get started.
Along with itching, do you have any of the following?
- Trouble breathing
- Unintentional weight loss
- Enlarging lumps (or "glands") under the skin
- Reduced urination
- Yellow tinge to the eyes or skin
