Itching Without Rash

Sorry to hear that!

You could have a condition called "aquagenic pruritus" (which means water-induced itching). People with this often describe symptoms as a very unpleasant prickly, intense itching sensation that may develop with any exposure to water, including humid air or sweat. Occasionally it accompanies a blood disease called Polycythemia Vera (or P.Vera). If you have these symptoms, see your doctor for evaluation and treatment.

Here's the next question:

Do you have dry skin?

Yes, actually, my skin is dry.

No, I don't have dry skin.
