Doctors and all concerned nairalanders, I really need to know if there is any treatment for itching especially after morning bath. I have used up all means known to me including, bathing hot water, applying aboniki after bath, etc. I brought this to nairaland believing to get a lasting solution. Thank you my good people.

Sometimes your skin may be reacting to your towel or bathing soap

This used to happen to me years ago.

It has stopped for some reason i can't explain because i never knew the cause.

But i think it has something to do with the water cuz i was in school then and haven't suffered it since i left.

So change your environment for a while and see what happens.

Lol. Is that what you do in your own case? cheesy

Itching after bathing? Apply body cream immediately after drying your body. Immediately.

Oh! Sorry about the itching. Perhaps you need medical attention. I don't think it is a self med case.

Full Blood Count. Go to a medical laboratory to get the test done. I don't know her reason for asking you to do FBC tho.

Try not to use sponge to have your bath, don't also dry your body with a towel and let's see what happens.

See a doctor too

Lol. Ok. Well, the cause of the itching for the OP is different from yours most likely. Therefore, the solution will be different.

I think his may be an infection though, that's if it recently started.

Mine is usually the soap or water I guess. Happens few times. OP should visit the hospital.

it's over 15years
Re: Itching After Bathing - I Need Help... by queenpin: 3:39pm On Aug 06, 2016
It's been happening to me for as long as I remember.
I have stopped bathing with sponge, it reduced slightly.
I have stopped bathing with cold water, it reduced slightly.
Tried different types of soaps , to no avail.
But I have noticed that I don't itch in the mornings when am rushing out to work etc. I only itch if I take my bath and am staying back at home or after my evening bath.
My wife thinks it's psychological.

Boy! Over 15 years and you are comfortable with using Aboniki balm alone?

Not good. Put an end to it by seeking professional help. You can go to a general hospital, won't be too expensive I think. So that you can feel the joy of having your bath without any scratching afterwards cheesy.

I typed it already or it is also called complete blood count (CBC).
It can be done in a laboratory.
Post the result here after you have done so I can interprete it for you.
Meanwhile,take piriton one tablet twice daily for 5 days

Pls what is FBC and how's it done. Thanx.
