Saturn rules over skin. Moon rules the diseases of skin. Affliction of these planets, affliction of Saturn or Moon by malefic Sun and Mercury, situation of all these planets in evil houses. Conjunction with evil lords and malefics, and a relation of them with Kanya rasi, sixth house, lord of sixth house or with disease-inflicting house or planet, all these give rise to itches and skin diseases.
