To find out what treatment is right for you, you must first know the cause of this itchy complaint because the treatment that will be given by a doctor depends on the cause.

For the time being, you are advised not to scratch the itchy part. You can use calamine lotion or compress cold water on the itchy area to relieve itching. You are also encouraged to maintain personal hygiene as well as your home, especially the bedroom.
