Everything that happens in our body happens for a reason. Either by low defenses (such as health complications), hormonal changes, or stressful situations. The itching of the skin, for example, is the body's way of telling us that "something is wrong."
If it is sporadically maybe it is still advisable to consult your doctor, but if the itching is daily then you should go to a consultation to find out what is happening in your body.
What is your body telling you?
- Problems in the liver: itching and hives can be a sign of hepatitis. It is an early sign of this disease. So if it happens, it is advisable to consult the doctor, according to RD.
- Problems with the nerves: the rash and itching in the upper part of the back can be a sign of a bad functioning of the nerves, explains RD. This is because certain problems in the back may be creating pressure on the nerve and that generates itching.
- Celiac disease: if you have itching in the knees, elbows, and neck it can be a sign of celiac disease. By continuing to eat gluten, the immune system creates antibodies that trigger cutaneous itching.
- Problems in the thyroid: if the thyroid does not work properly, the skin may dry up, according to Cameron Rokhsar, dermatologist, in an interview with RD. Dryness can be itchy.
- Chronic allergies: may also be due to chronic allergies that you have not yet identified. Going to the dermatologist or an allergist will help you identify what causes itching and avoid it (or take anti-allergy, depending on the severity).
- Menopause: at this stage women lose collagen and the skin becomes dry and weak. This can cause itching frequently.
- Pregnancy: According to the American Pregnancy Association, 1 out of every 150 women suffers from skin breakouts (in the abdomen area) when pregnant.
