Itching without rash indicates a systemic problem.
Iron deficiency
Polycythemia vera
hidden infection
heavy metal toxicity
And other problems.
If this is the case, you need to see your internist or family doctor...only exam and lab testing is going to show the cause.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
