‘Pruritus’ simply means itching, and it can be associated with number of disorders including dry skin, skin diseases, pregnancy and – rarely – cancer. Anyone can get pruritus but certain groups of people (those who suffer from hay fever, allergies, asthma, and eczema) are more susceptible to the condition

Pruritus may be a manifestation of an internal condition. The most common example is kidney failure. Often the dermatologist will be able to diagnose the condition by physical examination; sometimes a blood test, skin scraping, or biopsy may also be needed to confirm the diagnosis.
