the dermatologists are able to diagnose the cause of itching with a
careful history and physical examination; however, to determine a specific
cause of the itch, a panel of blood tests, skin scraping, or biopsy may be
needed to help make the diagnosis. If the itch is due to a skin disease or
skin infection, treatment of the causative condition itself, in
combination with topical medications and oral antihistamines usually
relieves the symptoms. If the itch is secondary to an internal disease,
patients may require treatment of the disease with oral medications.
