Itching Without Rash

Okay. We ask because iron-deficiency anemia is sometimes accompanied by itching without a rash. You could be anemic without knowing it, so if your itching continues, see your doctor for evaluation. A simple blood test can determine if you are iron deficient.

Here's the next question:

Do you have any of the following?

- Unexplained weight loss or weight gain

- Cold or heat intolerance -- for example, feeling particularly hot or cold when everyone else around you is comfortable

- Palpitations or feeling your heart race

- Persistent change in voice

- Muscle weakness

Yes, one or more of those is true for me.

No, none of those apply to me.
