is dry skin Hep c symptom?

Hi, I'm Chris this is my first post here.
From a little more than a month and a half my skin turned more dry than usual (never had it this way) and i feel it hotter too, but not fever ( started on my forearms, then lower legs and now upper torso-neck area). There is some tingling especially on my forearms along with some slight redness on them. This is giving me a lot of anxiety which has an impact on my sleep. I'm really worried about it 24/7
Also i noticed at the gym that i sweat like never before particularly on the back of my head, forearms and shoulders. I'm 42 and been at the gym since i was a teen, so i notice with some condition change on my workout,

Could be the skin condition alone be symptom of Hep C? I have no Fatigue, no nausea, no pain in my muscles or joints, no jaundice or dark urine, no fever.
Regarding pruritus, sometimes my forearms itches, but is mild, very short and in little areas, Maybe this is happening because i think my skin should itch ( sounds silly, but is worrisome) or because those areas are dry.

Thanks for your time.
