News 10 January Itchy skin? Usually it only lasts for a short time and is often caused by annoyances like a mosquito bite or scratchy fabric.

However, if an itch lasts for more than six weeks, say dermatologists from the American Academy of Dermatology, it is considered a chronic itch and is more likely to disrupt your life.

Galadari recommends the following tips: Apply a cold, wet cloth or ice pack to the skin that itches. Take an oatmeal bath. This can be very soothing, especially for blisters or oozing skin due to chickenpox, hives, poison ivy or sunburn. Always choose a moisturizer free of additives, fragrances and perfumes. Apply topical anesthetics that contain pramoxine.

Apply cooling agents, such as menthol or calamine. You could also place your moisturizer in the refrigerator to help achieve this cooling effect. Bathe with lukewarm — not hot — water. As directed by your dermatologist, apply medications before moisturizing.
