Itching is a sensation on the skin that impels one to continuously rub and scratch. It can either be at one spot of the skin area or dispersed throughout the body.
Sometimes skin eruptions, injuries or infections may also occur upon intense scratching.

How Does One Develop Itching?
Allergies and their associated symptoms such as itching are manifested due to hypersensitivity of the body against various outside allergens.
Though these allergens are not necessarily harmless but may trigger an autoimmune response for some of the people.
As a result, your immune system may start producing antibodies which although will remain dormant in your body but may become alert again until your next encounter with that allergen.
Here, these antibodies start producing a histamine-an immune system chemical that produces outer physical symptoms such as itching.
This is where homeopathic remedies work to treat the underlying cause.
Obviously, there can be other factors unique to your genetic lineage and other possible risk factors which are paid due attention while visiting a homeopath.
During your consultation with a homeopath, all these factors are of importance and form the basis of an effective homeopathic treatment.
