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.
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.
