Are you stressed or anxious?  That can cause itching as well as exacerbate itching occurring for other reasons.  

Dry skin is another cause of itching and wow, am I having that problem this time of year!  

There are other additional sources of itching that mightn't cause rash- endocrine and metabolic problems, like disease of the kidneys and a hyperactive thyroid.  Cancer, an adverse drug reaction, a problem with the bile flow, and more (see private message).

Of course, the cause is an important component of getting rid of the itch.  Also, I know there is medicine that can be prescribed for itching.
