    Try vegetable based glycerin....it is amazingly soothing to the skin and has a way of restoring natural moisture without oiliness. The moisture may reduce the itching. You can find it at the health stores...let me know if it works for you....

    There is a plan called never-die plant. I don't know if you have it in america. But if you can lay your hands on it, boil it and use the water to bath.
    And avoid taking in too much salt

    Thank you both for the advice, I'll try both.  And chinweike I'll have to check the Internet for the plant you spoke of, as I've never heard of it.  Thanks again.

    When you take a bath, add a cup of oatmeal wrapped in cheesecloth.  Wrapped in several layers of cheesecloth, the starch enters the water; but, the oatmeal doesn't.  There is something incredibly soothing about oatmeal starch for itchy skin.

    why not try to wrap your body with cucumber sheet. Our unique machine can slice cucumber horizontally. One cucumber can have about 1m to 1.5 m of  continuous cucumber sheet. Enough to wrap your body. It might help to alleviate the itchiness.

    Itchy skin? Try Cortizone 10 cream. I believe it's 2% cortizone.

    Try yeast infection medication in case it's a fungal problem. (You can use that stuff for many, many things.)

    Stop using the soap you're currently using and try one that's organic.

    Same thing with your shampoo and conditioner.

    Wash your clothes and bedding in an organic detergent.

    The itchy skin may be a symptom of something else, so try to find out what is causing the symptoms.

    For instance there is a liver disease that causes itchy skin symptoms, or some form of allergy or intolerance.  Lactose intolerance gives rise to itchy skin symptoms.

    Just treating the symptom without trying to determine the underlying cause is just a short term palliative solution.

    Consult your doctor or dermatologist (assuming of course that you have not already done so).
