ITCHING

Itching is a response to a skin irritant. The nerves that tell your brain to feel itching are the same ones that tell it to feel pain. So when your brain senses the irritant and tells you that it itches, your natural instinct is to scratch that spot and remove the irritant. Almost anything that causes itching is accompanied by inflammation. So, if you want to help decrease itching, you need to work on decreasing inflammation.

HYDROTHERAPY

The physiological reason heat stops itching is because hot shower, bath or compress, causes mast cells to dump their histamine contents. As histamine is the chemical that causes itching, this histamine-release provides several hours of relief (because it takes several hours for mast cells to re-synthesize histamine). Heat directed at an area of itch often provides as much relief as taking an anti-histamine tablet.
