Rash Itching After Warm Bath
Itching all over the body. No rash nothing at all. It just itches a lot all over. I put baby oil after I bath still its not okay!! : (?
See dermatologist: If the itching is so bothersome, you should consult a dermatologist since dry skin is apparently not the issue. The itch pathway is far more complex than we had thought and no longer just a matter of histaminic action. (I assume you have tried antihistamine already. If not, you may give it a try). ...Read more
I have severe pruritus and urticaria. For more than 2weeks now, causing weals all over my body. More when I wear sweater or after warm bath, in winter.
Cold Urticaria: Cold urticaria or sensitivity to wool can be a cause of your symptoms. These symptoms maybe treated with H1antihistamines (cetirizine etc) and H2 antihistamines (Zantac). Severe symptoms maybe need steroid treatment. Anti inflammatory diet may help as well. See your doctor for appropriate treatment. ...Read more

No rash?: Itching without rash is somewhat unusual for an allergic reaction to a food. Write down everything you have eaten in the past 12 to 24 hours. It may be something you don't suspect. If it occurs again, you can begin to narrow down the possibilities, if the itching is from an allergic cause. ...Read more

Why am I itching all over? Tried blood test from doctors not scabies dry skin no rash or hives tried nonscented items like soaps tried less warm showe
Cause, often "missed" is SKIN DRYNESS!!!!
This condition is often called "Winter Itch" although it can occur in any season. Heat being turned on in cold weather dries the skin even faster that's why the condition is more prevalent during winter months!
TRY HUMIDIFIER in your bedroom and run it during day so that when you go to bed the room has a good moisture level!
Hope this helps!

Xerosis vs eczema...: Dry skin, allergies to detergent, or other irritants are possibilities. Try using a skin cream without alcohol in it immediately after showering/ washing. If this does not work try a hypoallergenic detergent.... If that fails see your doc again or go to a dermatologist. ...Read more

If I have a shower I have no problems. If I have a bath, after 10 min, my head itches very strong. Why? Is it a symptom of dermatitis seborroic?
?: I can't think of a mechanism for this since showering would involve your scalp but bathing likely not. There is a condition known as cholinergic urticaria in which intensely itchy red bumps would develop after a rise in core body temperature, but this does not fit your picture. It is also not suggestive of seborrhea. Suggest you see a dermatologist. ...Read more

Eczema or intertrigo: Scented soaps can cause this issue in people with sensitive skin or a history of asthma or seasonal allergies.

Toddler itches, breaks out during bath b4 any soaps/shampoo are applied. Has reacted this way in other tubs. Allergy towards something in water?
Mgt and workup:
I would advise using a very basic soap such as white Dove soap. Avoid all perfumed products including shampoo. The reaction may also be to cleaning products and using natural cleaning products and rinsing the tub well prior to bath time may help.
I would suggest an antihistamine and evaluation. ...Read more
It itches before I start my period. A couple of months ago I had a yeast infection I don't think its that because when I took a bath vinegar it stop?
Maybe not yeast...: Vinegar doesn't work against yeast infections (or anything else); if the itching improved with a vinegar "bath" it was probably just a coincidence. You may or may not have a yeast infection; other things also can cause genital itching. See a doctor for professional diagnosis and recommended treatment. Good luck! ...Read more
