What can cause itchy skin:

  • Dry skin. When skin is dry, “it lets in irritants that can cause itching,” explains Dr. Kemi Fabusiwa. This means that “your skin reacts more easily to harsh soaps, scented products, or even temperature changes”;
  • Certain medications. It is a side effect of some common medications, including pain relievers such as aspirin and blood pressure medications;
  • pressure. In case you didn't know, one of the most common symptoms of stress is skin problems, such as redness, inflammation, and itching.
  • menopause. “Estrogen signals the production of natural oils and collagen (the protein that makes up skin, hair and nails) and lower levels result in less oil production and lower collagen levels,” which makes our delicate skin easily irritated;
  • Allergic reaction. Chandni Rajani, general practitioner and beautician, says there are “various allergens capable of triggering an immune response, leading to itchy skin.”
  • Vitamin A deficiency, E and D. “Inadequate levels of these vitamins can damage skin health, causing dryness, irritation and itching, so maintaining a balanced diet rich in essential nutrients is crucial for skin health and overall well-being,” he adds.
  • Eczema or psoriasis. According to the doctor, the first condition “involves inflammation of the skin, which leads to redness, swelling, and itching, while psoriasis leads to the rapid accumulation of skin cells, leading to the appearance of dry and itchy patches.”
