You need to bath with hot water. Especially if you live in Europe or America the cold water has so many cleansing chemicals it will itch the skin.

are you kidding me? shocked hot ke?

@ topic use warm water, if you can bear it cold water

c o s the hot water dehydrates your skin ,leading to body itching and all other skin problems

your best bet is to moisturize your skin ,immediately after taking a shower/bath

it may be down to the water you use to bath and the sensitivity of your skin!

try using dis-infectants like dettol and also think about using medicated soaps!

Ok in Europe and America, after your shower, your skin becomes itchy its because your skin is dry. DONT USE HOT WATER. . .THATS CRAZY. Just bath like normal and after yout showe when you wipe dry your body, apply body lotion.

most time its due to skin infection or allergy. bathing warm water with disinfectant works. also robbing cream helps to sooth the itching.
