Why can i sweat anymore?
I have noticed i cant sweat anymore and i have had itchy skin for the past month or so. I have done many blood tests after i started getting these symptoms and everything has come back normal except i might be a little anemic. But i am not iron deficient so that cannot be the reason for my lack of sweating.

Hi,

This could be due to under-activity of sympathetic nervous system leading to anhidrosis. It is good that your tests were normal.  But it would be best that you have this evaluated further by a dermatologist or neurologist to rule out other causes and for proper management.  Differentials include senile skin, forms of dermatitis, scleroderma, lichen sclerosis, or possible problems with your sympathetic nervous system.

Take care and regards.
