Dr.Pearlstein,assistant clinical professor of dermatology at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York recommends: He says itching occurs due to dry skin in winter due to water loss and not oil loss which normally people think. Moisturisers applied after the bath help keep water in the skin and therefore prevent drying. He says keeping your house on the cool side in winter might help. When you heat your house too much,he explains,it makes blood vessels dilate,and when blood vessels dilate, the itching cycle begins.

If you take a bath everyday you strip out your bodys natural oils. Either take a bath every other day or use a good lotion after your bath and before bed. It helps replenish the skin. Ususally this happens in the winter for many people.

I suffer the same problem too especially when it's really cold. Try these: Baby oil (or mineral oil) directly after a bath or shower. Rub in well and then if you don't like to feel oily rub yourself with towel after applying. (your favorite lotion can be used in place of the baby oil) Eucerin cream (Eucerin is the name brand, but you can get generic store brand) My children's physician recommended this for my daughter who has very sensitive skin. For your hands, lips and feet apply vaseline before bed.

I had expecienced this same thing when it was cold and dry, i had taught it was something i ate but i was informed by the doctor that i was just my skin type reacting to the weather. So I think is just you skin, though they gave me a lotion to use. If it is very disturbing, you can just see a physician.
