Irritation in the upper layer of the skin causes very annoying itching and if this discomfort is suffered at night, it becomes even more unbearable. In this article we are going to give you some tips to combat this unpleasant feeling.
Why does our skin itch?
Itching is a discomfort suffered on the surface of the skin as a result of irritation that leads the sufferer to the inevitable desire to scratch endlessly. Itching on the body at night is more common in elderly people, but it is true that people of all ages also suffer from it. The most frequent itching at night occurs mainly in the back and extremities: arms, legs or hands. More than 33% of people who suffer from itching are worse at night. The causes are not usually very serious, but we are talking about a situation so uncomfortable that it generally disturbs sleep and rest repeatedly and ends up affecting our daily lives.
