Skin itching really bad!!!
I'm 19 and I don't understand but for the past few weeks I have been itching really really bad on my legs and now I'm itching on my arms, legs, chest, and back. It doesn't stop it itches so bad, the itch never stops I have scratched so hard that I have scabs from where I scratch so much. Someone please tell me what I need to do to end this horror story.

Hello,
It can be due to contact dermatitis, allergies, fungal infection, heat rash or sweat dermatitis. Avoid using any lotions and creams for the meantime.
Use a mild cleanser with moisturizing properties like Cetaphil. Also use cotton clothes and change the clothes twice if there is any increased sweating. Try keeping the skin free of sweat as far as possible. If the symptoms still persist then you can apply mild steroid like dermacort. For the itching antihistaminics like Benadryl or Claritin can be taken.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
