My lower legs itches like crazy. It occurs mostly at the end of the day.
it's been happening since more than 10 years. Initially I thought it could be because of dry skin and started using moisturisors regularly. But there was no use. When it starts itching I go mad. Sometime I feel like taking a knife and scratch all over. At times it itches at the upper leg to but not very often and not as bad as the lower legs. And it happens in all weathers - summer or winter.
To my knowledge I am not allergic to anything. Once I scratch around the places where it itches, there will redness. Please advise what could be the cause of this itching and what I can do about it.
