Are you suffering with itchy skin? The medical name for severe itching is pruritus. Pruritus can affect any part of the body. It often produces an uncomfortable rash, and can become extremely irritating.
Itchy skin can be caused by a variety of things. It might be as a result of allergies, or due to skin conditions such as psoriasis or eczema. Or perhaps you just suffer from dry or sensitive skin.
At Tower Health, we stock various products that offer relief from insect bites and skin rash, as well as conditions such as eczema, fungal infections and other causes of itchy skin. These include itch relief creams, insect and mosquito bite relief and a range of treatments for itching-related conditions.
Often, great skin can come from within. That’s why we offer the natural supplements Olivease to help relieve dry, itchy skin. These capsules contain natural olive extract to improve skin issues without the use of any drugs.
Creams for itchy skin
Creams are great for itchy skin, because not only do they help put moisture back into the skin, you also get that immediate soothing effect when you apply it. The Colostrum Dermacell Itchy Skin Cream that we sell is specially formulated to treat itchy, red, scaly and flaky skin. As well as its soothing properties, it helps skin to regenerate. It also does this without the use of cortisone or antibiotics. It can be used to treat ongoing skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis as well.
We also offer a special cream specifically for anal itching. Itching and discomfort in this area can be embarrassing, but you can buy this effective product online from Tower Health without needing to visit a shop. Anasan Forte contains natural and gentle ingredients derived from plants, such as witch hazel, camomile and marigold. It soothes the affected area and helps to reduce itching and stinging.
Itchy insect bites
Another cause of itching is insect bites. Getting bitten by a mosquito or similar usually results in a big red lump that is extremely itchy. This happens because the bite provokes the body’s natural immune reaction and produces histamine. This is a chemical the body creates to eliminate unwanted substances, and is also what causes allergic reactions in response to allergens.
Itchgone Insect Bite and Sting Relief combats this reaction and reduces swelling, redness and itching when you have been bitten. It is placed directly on the bite, and you click a button that emits a tiny electric pulse. This stimulates extra blood flow to the area, which neutralises the histamine produced and therefore prevents itching and swelling. It also stimulates the production of natural endorphins, which help to soothe the area and the symptoms of the bite.
