1. When to Make an Appointment With Your Doctor
It’s hard to know when to make an appointment with your doctor, but you should consider seeking help if the itch is impacting your sleep.
Here is when to seek help from your doctor:
- The itch does not go away or improve within two weeks.
- You cannot sleep as a result of the intense itching.
- You are experiencing other problems such as fever, rash, weight loss, or weakness.
Nighttime itchy skin can come and go. The first trick to finding relief is to figure out what is causing the itch. Once you have an idea of why your skin is itching, then you can look for ways to soothe your overstimulated skin, relieve the rash, or restore much-needed moisture to the dry cells.
