It may be something else entirely, but, sometimes skin becomes:
- sensitized to detergent residue (re-wash linen a second time but without any detergent or other additives, to rinse out the residue);
- as winter approaches, indoor home air becomes dry, tending to irritate skin that's dry (of skin oils), which can lead to progressively worsening itching.
- regular application of skincare lotion right after bathing (while the skins' pores are still open) can greatly help restore natural skin oils, along with
- avoiding hot baths/showers (stay with tepid water), and patting, not rubbing dry with a towel (helps avoid wiping off skin oils).
