Wa alaikumsalam Meria, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Itching of the skin is very annoying, but this condition, if not accompanied by other symptoms, has very wide possibilities in the medical world. Among others are:

Skin fungal infection
Dry skin conditions or xerosis
Psoriasis conditions
Nerve disorders such as diabetes, multiple sclerosis, pinched nerves
Internal diseases such as kidney failure, liver dysfunction, cirrhosis


Allergy to chemicals, soap, clothing or jewelry
Hormonal changes
Insect bites
Psychological conditions


Because you have already checked with a general practitioner at the health center, our next advice is of course to consult a dermatologist. Your dermatologist will know which of the above possibilities represents your condition or even outside of it. Your doctor may perform investigations to help make a diagnosis. The treatment you will receive depends on the results of this examination.


Meanwhile, avoid scratching because the activity of scratching can make the complaints you experience worse, cold compress the itchy area, and consume over-the-counter antihistamine-containing drugs by reading the rules of use listed. Get well soon.


That's all, hope it helps.
