What can cause itching?
Itching is also known as pruritus and is that tingling irritation of the skin that causes a strong desire to scratch.
There are many things that can cause itching: irritation from chemicals or plants, insect bites or parasites, dry skin, allergic reactions, fungal infections, kidney and liver disease, anxiety, eczema, medications, infectious diseases like chicken pox and even kidney or liver conditions.
The more serious causes like liver disease are luckily the less common ones and most itching is caused by easily treatable conditions.
Fungal infections like “jock itch”, athlete’s foot and thrush are high up on the list of common causes of itching. These infections can be very uncomfortable and unpleasant and have a tendency to recur, especially when there is an overgrowth of yeast, like systemic Candida.
Pruritis ani - itching in and around the anus - is another common and sometimes embarrassing problem. This too may be caused by systemic Candida but is also associated with conditions like hemorrhoids and eczema. Even certain vitamin and mineral supplements or a particular foods which are ingested can be to blame. Though seldom serious, pruritis ani can be very unpleasant.
Treatment depends on the cause of the itching. For example, if itching is related to thrush, antifungal creams may be prescribed to treat the problem. If itching is due to a food allergy, then the allergen should be identified and avoided. Treatment may be topical (i.e. applied to the surface of the skin) to stop the itching and may also include oral medications such as anti-histamines.
Natural Remedies Can Help
Naturopaths realize that itching is a systemic reaction to an underlying problem. Therefore it is important to treat the cause of the itching and to take steps to relieve the itching itself so as to remove the discomfort experienced.
There are many medicinal herbs as well as homeopathic ingredients that can be very effective in treating both the causes and the symptoms of itching conditions, leading to relief without the side effects of prescription or synthetic drugs.

"After reluctantly taking a prolonged course of antibiotics I developed thrush and other symptoms of Candida. The fatigue was bothersome but the itch was driving me up the wall!!! Your Itch Dr. was the only thing that helped within seconds. I used that cream and also your Candidate drops and diet and I am now happily back to my previous, healthy self. What a relief- thanks!" - Judy A.
"I recently had a most embarrassing and unpleasant problem - an itchy anus. The itch was excruciating and of course, I couldn’t go around scratching it all the time. I have experienced this before - after a bout of diarrhea - and it took weeks to get better. I was keen to try your Itch Dr. so ordered and it and it really did the trick. Within a few days I didn’t need it any longer as the area had healed and the itching had stopped altogether." - N.L.
Itch Dr. contains the following herbal ingredients and essential oils in a healing Vitamin E cream:
Aloe ferox is a succulent and well-known medicinal herb native to South Africa. Aloe ferox has many different therapeutic uses and writings from as early as 1500BC in Ancient Egypt document its medicinal uses. For centuries this herb has been used topically for skin ailments like eczema and psoriasis. European sailors routinely used the sap to heal and protect their skin from the elements, rope burns, and salt water exposure. Modern research has verified the antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial functions of Aloe ferox.
Urtica urens is excellent for soothing, healing and pain relief and can be safely and effectively used on minor burns, hives and itchy skin eruptions. This herb is also useful for its astringent properties and will help to stop bleeding.
Hamamelis virginianum (Witchhazel) is an excellent astringent herb with anti-inflammatory properties. It can be used to treat itching, insect bites and stings, sunburn, minor burns, grazes, rashes and most skin irritations. Witchhazel also has antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties that help to treat and prevent infections.
Calendula officinalis (Marigold) is an excellent anti-inflammatory herb and prevents infection with its anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. These antifungal properties make Calendula particularly effective for skin conditions caused by thrush and other fungal infections of the skin. Used to soothe and heal skin abrasions, dry rough skin, rashes, eczema, skin sores and dry patches, Marigold has also been shown to assist healing and the regeneration of damaged skin tissue.
Melaleuca laterifolia is also known as Tea Tree Oil and is used externally for inflammation and to treat various skin conditions. This oil has excellent anti-bacterial and healing properties and is one of the strongest anti-fungal remedies available. Tea Tree Oil will soothe and reduce inflammation of the skin as well as effectively treat any fungal infections.
Lavendula officinalis (Lavender) is a sweet-smelling essential oil which also has strong antifungal, antiviral and antibacterial properties. This oil also has balancing and soothing properties.
