Lifestyle and home remedies

By Mayo Clinic Staff

To relieve intense itching, you might try:

  • Applying an anti-itch cream to small areas
  • Taking a cool bath with cornstarch added to the water

If you have extensive itching, check with your doctor before applying anti-itch cream or any other over-the-counter product to large portions of your body.
