Why Do My Legs Itch After A Shower Even When I Put On Lotion They Still Itch What Could Be The Cause
Why do my legs itch after a shower even when I put on lotion they still itch what could be the cause?
Dry Skin or Allergy: You may just have really dry skin, which happens a lot in the winter. Soaps & shaving can irritate & dry out your skin, making it itch. Try a heavier moisturizer if you haven't already. You may also be having a reaction to the soap or lotion you're using. You can try switching brands to see if that helps. If nothing is working, see your dr, there may be another underlying cause. ...Read more

The back of my legs itch bad. When I shave it goes away. When the hair grows back it itches bad. I've had it for some time and doctors have given me antihistamines for it. One doctor said I had an allergy to my own hair.
Irritation?: Your hair is likely very curve and thus when they are long enough they may start to "tickle" or irritate your leg. This would not be helped by taking an antihistamine although a topical numbing agent or cortisone may. Since you have already found the solution, why not shave more frequently? ...Read more

Dry, cracked, itchy skin between fingers, skin peeling off wrists and arms from itching. Had treatment for scabies and use lotions, both unaffective.
Every time I get home, I notice these bump like itches keep appearing on my feet, legs & eventually to my arms. What could be the cause?
Indoor allergen?: If this occurs only when you are in the house, I would suspect something in the home being an allergen to you. In a tropical climate, mold allergy would be top on the list. Check for mold infestations.
