Itching (Pruritus) in Florida
What is Itching (Pruritus)?
Itching skin, or a condition also known as pruritus, is characterized by the uncontrollable and uncomfortable sensation of itching on the skin. Itching skin can be a sign of something as simple as sensitivity to laundry detergent or body wash, to something as serious as a chronic internal illness. When taking your itching skin into consideration, we encourage our patients to be on the lookout for visible signs of skin conditions as well, including rashes, bumps, rough patches of skin, or red patches of skin. If you find that your skin is consistently itching after changing some possible environmental factors, we encourage you to come to see one of our expert board-certified dermatologists at your earliest convenience.
