Hello !

There may be several possible causes of itchy skin ...

You may have your thyroid function checked... Dry and itching of skin is a common symptom of hypothyroidism

Often too as weather cools the inside of homes is more dry and may affect the skin

So trying a moisturizing lotion twice a day may help ....

I hope that this is helpful for you

I will be happy to get back with you

Thank you and Best Regards,

Dr. Bray
