Hi Luan, thank you for the question.

There may be a number of reasons for the itchy skin and your best option would be to see a dermatologist who can examine the areas and decide on the best treatment options. Typically itchiness is a symptom of a number of skin conditions such as eczema, xerosis, heat induced rashes, dermatitis, allergic reactions, etc. so one would need to examine the skin first before deciding on the treatment.
