Here are the possible causes:
Allergy
Infection
Scabies

If you have allergy, please take tablet Levocet once a day. This will help you reduce the allergy and the itching. If the itching does not recover, you need to get examined by a Doctor to get checked for Scabies or an infection.

The Doctor will then start you on antibiotics or on other medications to help you. Hope this helps you.
