Answer:

Dear Jacob,

It may be a food allergy.

Probably the most common cause of itch is psychological, that is, due to stress, and anxiety. Stress also can aggravate itch from other causes.

Itching may be caused by a skin disorder.

Common causes of itching in healthy people are:

Contact with irritants - such as chemicals or plants. Conventional laundry products contain a range of chemicals that irritate skin.
Dry skin
Food or medication allergies.
Aging of skin.
Drugs and vitamin A

Healthy people with a vitamin A imbalance also get itchy. High Magnesium may also cause the release of histamine.

Keep your Phosphorus down and don't scratch.

The best natural sources for phosphorus are nuts, seeds, cereal grains, meat, poultry, and fish

Aloe Vera is an extremely good cure.

The use of cod liver oil or vitamin E oil is also known to be beneficial when applied to affected portions.

White foods like bananas and litchis can help cure allergies and itching sensations very well. Make them a regular feature of your diet.
