What is Itching (Pruritus)?
Many of us are familiar with the discomfort of itchy skin, ranging from mild to severe. Pruritus is the medical term for itchy skin, which feels like an uncontrollable or uncomfortable sensation of itching on any part of the skin. While it can be a minor reaction to external factors such as laundry detergent or body lotion, it can also be a sign of serious underlying health issues. If you experience symptoms and are looking for the cause of your itching skin, come to our Sarasota clinic. If your symptoms persist even after eliminating suspected external causes, you’ve come to the right place! The team of board-certified dermatologists at Suncoast Skin Solutions is here to provide you with professional, cost-effective pruritus treatment.
