Remedies for itching skin


Itching describes the sensation of skin irritation that can occur on one part of the body or in several different areas at a time. Itching is not health condition or disease in itself, but is very often a symptom of some underlying health condition. Itching or Pruritus creates the urge to scratch and may be accompanied by a rash, blisters, or bumps on the skin. Itching without any skin abnormalities and those that are more generalized are often difficult to diagnose and treat.

Scratching can increase the intensity of an itch and can lead to further complications such as neurodermatitis, permanent skin damage, scarring, and other bacterial skin infections.

Itching can be localized, affecting only small areas of skin such as on the arms or legs, back or face. Generalized itching involves the whole body feeling itchy for no apparent reason. Spots, blisters, rashes, and red skin may accompany itchy skin. Other symptoms include dry skin, cracked skin, and a leathery texture of the skin (due to constant scratching).

Unfortunately many dogs today suffer from dog skin conditions. In fact, it's the number one reason dogs are taken to the vets according to Nationwide Pet Insurance .  Allergies is the most common diagnosis costing dog owners an average of $183 per visit.  In 2016 and 2017 the average cost has increased mainly due to new testing procedures for allergies in dogs. 

 If your dog starts to itch as soon as the weather gets warmer, it's quite possibly allergies, but, did you know  yeast infections are often misdiagnosed as allergies?    They have similar symptoms and both occur more often in hot and humid climates.  Luckily yeast is easily treated at home.  See here for more information.

In fact, nearly all dog skin problems have the symptom of itching so treating the symptoms alone usually results in multiple vet visits. 

You've spent the day outdoors and paid the price with a sunburn. How can you relieve the itching? You may find what you need in your own home.

Many remedies include yogurt. Apply plain yogurt to burned skin for a few minutes. Stand in a bathtub when you apply the yogurt, as this could get messy.

Homeopathic remedies such as witch hazel and lavender provide relief from itching and pain. Squeeze the gel out of aloe vera plants to apply to itchy skin.
