Well, something has worked wonders for you - being a ripe old age of 109.
I don't use any soap at all. Don't use any biological washing detergents and only use gentle fabric softeners.
Some foods can also trigger of itching as well as fungal infections, internal bacterial infections and getting old due to drying of the skin.
I take a bath with a couple of handfuls of oats, a few drops of lavender and some baby oil. I use a mild baby bath wash.
Eating a healthy diet and lost of water definitely helps.
LOL, a woman never revels her age.....! ;p
Just trying to help everyone out there with this HORRIBLE symptom and burden!! I have gone through so many so called 'miracle' products, till i got frustated! If anyone wants a review of any of the products 'anti-itching' i tested, please informe me!
I also used to use oatmeal, but to wash my face.
Oh, and by the way, thank you for the helpful comment! c:
identify the times when your body itches less after shower (morning, afternoon, night) it mostly the time when ur allergies are les and when ur mostly stressed out!
Shower with black african/morrocan soap (gel type not bar soap cuz it makes my body go crazyyy') or any time of soap/shower gel that has essential oils in it
Get multivitamins and check if u dont have a vitamin defiency or allergies; i take multivatamins and my allergie medecine before i shower and after i shower
Keep ur body clean from the inde; eat healthy, exercice, drink lots of water, fruits, veggies, you can even get fruit juices that have multivatimns in them
Find what kind of water makes ur body itch less; cols, very cold, hot, very hot (or me it is very very hot water)
Moisture your skin daily with any natural oil (coconut oil, argan oil, olive oil...)
