An itch that won’t go away may be considered chronic itch and can be debilitating.
At The Itch Clinic, we provide the latest in advanced treatments. Our dermatologists are studying why chronic itch happens and are finding novel treatments for its root causes.

- Inflammatory skin diseases
- Chronic itch of unknown origin
- Scalp itch
- Any kind of itch disorder
Treatments We Offer
Treatments for chronic itch disorders are very limited. There is a lack of effective medications on the market. Our doctors take the time to fully examine and evaluate your medical history and focus on alleviating symptoms. We take a personalized approach with off-label medications that aim to give you relief. Additionally, we conduct clinical trials that give our patients access to new therapies.
Under the direction of Brian S. Kim, MD, the Mark Lebwohl Center of Neuroinflammation and Sensation conducts research to understand skin immunity, inflammation, and sensation. New discoveries in genetic mutations, syndromes, and diseases that look like chronic itch are helping to develop new diagnostics and the latest treatments for our patients.
