Itchy skin can impact small areas of the body, such as a spot on an arm or a leg, or larger areas, like the scalp, back, or entire body. While itchy skin often looks different, itching can occur without causing any noticeable changes to the skin.
Symptoms of itchy skin often include:
- Scratching or scarring
- Blisters, bumps, and spots
- Dry, cracked, or weeping skin
- Patches that feel or appear leathery or scaly
