Gentle soap: Cleanse with gentle unscented soap like dove or basis soap, rinse well, then apply moisture cream such as vanicream or eucerin while still damp. Add 1%hydrocorisone cream 2 times a day also, for the itching and inflammation. Wear protective gloves in photo class!

Cold Urticaria: In some people, prolonged exposue to cold can trigger a histamine response, which is what makes an insect bite itch. It is best to avoid the cold if possible, where gloves, and if needed take an antihistamine like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or claritan. If this does not help, see an allergist.

Sensitivity: Itching sensation can be an allergy, a sensitivity or an irritated nerve. It can be something you came in contact with or possibly an insect bite. If there is no redness or rash visible-it can be an irritated nerve. It should clear up on its own-if not check it out.
