Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am U.S. trained,

Board Certified and I have 32 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you. A problem with your liver could cause itching over your entire body without any rash. The itching is caused by excess bile leakage in your system. May I suggest you have your gallbladder/liver tested for elevation in blood chemistries related to these two organs. Dry skin can also cause generalized itching and a moisturizer will cure this.

I hope I have addressed your concerns.

Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have.

I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, so I am compensated for my service, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
