Welcome to JustAnswer!

There is a long list of causes for itching ranging from allergy, fungal infection, hormonal imbalance, skin problem to systematic disease. Itching can be a sign of thyroid problem, liver issues or kidney problem etc. Even dry skin can cause itching. Since it is a new symptom that is persisting for more than a month, it is the right time to get it investigated by your doctor. You can read more about itching from this link, click here.
