  • Plants
    The most common plants likely to cause a skin reaction in 50% of the U.S. population are poison ivy, oak and sumac.

    A resinous sap in these plants called urushiol may cause a rash when it comes into contact with the skin. When the plant is injured, the urushiol may also be released and can stick to anything around it such as a pet, tools or clothing, so direct contact with the plants is not necessary to suffer the affects of urushiol.


    Particles of urushiol may also become airborne when the plants are burned with other brush and then come in contact with the skin or become inhaled.

    Bug Bites
    Mosquito and bed bug bites as well as bee stings and other bug bites may cause itching.

    Dry Skin
    Dry skin and skin that comes in contact with an irritant such as detergents, jewelry, soaps and cosmetics may also cause skin to itch. This is also known as irritant contact
    dermatitis.

  • Eczema
    Eczema is an inflammation of the skin causing it to become red, itchy and dry. The most common form of eczema is atopic dermatitis and is found more often in infants, though it can strike at any age. The face, hands, feet, inner elbow and back of the knees are the areas most often affected and may become worse from irritants such as soap, rough clothing, household chemicals, foods, dust mites and other allergy triggers.

    Another common type of eczema is contact dermatitis which comes in two forms - irritant and allergic. Irritant contact dermatitis may be a result of damage to the skin after coming into contact with chemicals. Allergic contact dermatitis may develop after a person comes into contact with a substance that triggers their allergies, such as nickel, cosmetics or a poisonous plant.

    Psoriasis
    Psoriasis, another chronic skin condition is due to an overactive immune system causing inflamed, thick white, silvery or red patches on the skin. It is not contagious, but is believed to be an inherited condition.
