Dr.shahz : Ok thanks for your in put
Dr.shahz : For the itch with no obviouse cause it's very difficult to know the cause in which case it's called idiopathic pruritus

Any advice?

Dr.shahz : I would tell you the treatment just for 2 weeks in which time it should result in a relief but if not the you have to see the derm and to do some bloods tests ok.
Customer:

ok

Dr.shahz : To rule out some internal causes of the itchiness .
Dr.shahz : 1- Tablet Zyrtec 10 mg once before going to bed
Customer:

ok thank you i will try,

Dr.shahz : 2- Tablet fexofenadine 180 mg once a day in the morning
Dr.shahz : 3- tablet Tegamet 300 mg once a day
Dr.shahz : All for 2 weeks
Dr.shahz : Avoid frequent washing ,harsh perfumed soaps and gels,very hot bath.
Dr.shahz : I hope this therapy will work but if not then as I said you must see the dermatologist.
Dr.shahz : Do you have any more questions?
Customer:

ok thanks,6 months ago i had most of my cervix burned out for cancer cells you dont think that would have anything to do with the itching?

Dr.shahz : Well not specifically but urinary tract infections,dental carries and thyroid and blood disorders as liver and kidney derangements can bring up the generalised itching
Dr.shahz : Thats y I told you to see the doctor for blood tests,otherwise the treatment will work hopefully
