In brief: Oat meal ?!!

What you are referring to is not oat meal but a fine dust that that is created by the milling process.
When that dust like material is added to lukewarm or cool water in a bath, it has comforting anti-itch properties. My moms swear by it when the use it during chickenpox.Its relief is temporary. Your dr may be able to address the long term reasons you have itchy skin.
