Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Are you itchy all over or just in one or a few spots?

You may have a skin condition called Pruritus. This is intensely itchy skin and can be caused by many things like diabetes, pregnancy, allergies or even medications. And Pruritus is generally worse at night.
You may have some other sort of skin condition. Please seek medical help for a diagnosis and a treatment plan.
