Itching Without Rash

Well, that may explain your itching. Dry skin is a particularly common cause of itching without a rash, especially as we get older. Sometimes people have dry skin due to an underlying medical condition, such as an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) or Sjogren's syndrome (a disease that typically causes arthritis, dry eyes, and dry mouth).

Avoid baths and long showers. Use moisturizing lotions and creams liberally.

Here's a question that you might not be expecting (and may not even apply to you!):

Are you pregnant?

Yes, I'm pregnant!

No, I am not pregnant!
