Welcome to and thank you for your question.
I am going to assist you with your question. First I need a little more information-

How long has this been going on for?
Are you suffering from any medical condition or on any medication ?
Do you have itching at night?
Does any other family member has similar symptoms?

Kind Regards,
Dr. Robert
