    The reason that your daughter may not be responding could be due to an underlying disorder, whether related to the skin or not, that may be contributing to this itching. Oral antihistamines and topical corticosteroids are effective in treating most cases on non-specific itching but may only provide short term symptomatic relief with underlying skin diseases. Therefore it is important that your daughter is now seen by a specialist, in this case dermatologist, who can further assess the condition and reach a diagnosis. Further investigation may be necessary. Speak to your family doctor about a referral to a dermatologist in your area
