I have recently been suffering from severe stress. I have had a loss in my family and am out of work, since this has been happening I have become very itchy. I just can’t stop scratching my legs, do you think stress might be causing this to happen?
Absolutely!! Your nerves can bring on skin diseases such as psoriasis and dermatitis etc. and stress can create outbreaks for these diseases which include excessive itching. To soothe this I would recommend oatmeal baths and heavy moisturizers with top quality ingredients. If this does not ease the itch you may want to consult your doctor for further treatment.
