Oh, you mean like the itch on my scalp when I get into the shower and start washing my hair?  Or the itchy back when I get out of the shower?  For me, it's more heat related.

I hear you're having a bit of a heat wave over there...

I know "the itch" quite well!!! The only thing that eases it a little bit is a cool compress then lots of lotion. It doesn't make it go away completely but it doesn't make it may main focus so I can think of other things.

I know the itch too!!! Three yrs. now. Itch when overheated, itch when nervous and body temp. rises. Leathery looking , red, split scaly skin on left hand only. Bleeding when I get carried away with scratching . I have to use an ice pack until the itch starts to fade. I also had the ER doc. prescribe a topical cream , forget the name, starts with a C. It cleared up the awful leathery look.

Ice, Ice and more Ice!!!!! LOL

Oh yeah, I have had the itch behind my knees when I get hot, also itch on the fold of my arm.
I have had the itch on my shins too. It S U C K S !!

Hope it goes away,

Oh yes I too know that itch!!

I can scratch and itch until my hands or arms until they are red raw.

Mine is set off my stress. I'm under stress at the moment having the whole family here for Easter, so I'm just waiting for it to start,

Hope you get some relief,

Hahahahaha.  Not funny I know so well...  I look at the itch as the inability for my mind to connect the fingernails to the itch being scratched.  You know - scratch with your fingertips, but not connecting?  I simply refuse to scratch my itches when it happens.  It's like feeding a hungry bear grapes.

Hi there, I had this prom too. I use to itch my arm tell i bleed I have scars all over my left arm. So I started using tea tree oil and also taking 2 fish oil pills  a day and my skin is so soft it feels like it did at 30. I never believed in this stuff but it worked. so maybe it would help you too. I even had these wart looking things growing around my ankles and they are all gone. My skin would flake from dryness and now i did not even use lotion and iam not dry.

I hope this well help T
