I don't remember your age, Mags, but tx can kick in early menopause, which
causes dry skin. Not a bad tradeoff; flaky but treatable and-- bonus-- no
period! Aveeno is an excellent topical product, and keep your water intake
up to hydrate your skin cells. If you're under 40 or male, please disregard
this post.

I had itchy skin that later became a rash. I used Extra strength gold bond
body lotion. What really worked for me though, was taking an antihistamine
every morning. After about a week the itchy skin and rash that I had
developed were gone.

Drink a lot of water.

Hello dear Maggie Lou. It is good to hear a peep from you. If you are
still taking the heavy stuff for pain, that might be causing the itchies.
It's a pretty common side effect of opioids. I have a bit of trouble with
that. If it's really bad - like keeping you awake, you might try a bit of
antihistamine.

How's them bones honey? Did you decide to retire?

hug you
kj

I have very dry, itchy skin too, especially my legs after shaving, I really like an oatmeal lotion, like Aveeno! A bottle of Aveeno is like 8 bucks, but you can get the generic brand thats just as good for usually around $3 or $4!

hi there....

itchiness can be caused in winter months by dry skin which becomes dry because of the dry air your house heat produces. Normal air humidity in summer is 50%--in winter it can drop as low as 20%. This will dry your body skin and make it itch as it becomes dehydrated. Try getting a good humidifier for your home. Sears makes a good 5 gallon one with a fan, and it works great. My winter itchiness has all but stopped since I have been using it in the last 5 years. Good luck.

There are already givn different suggestion by all of you. I am totally agree with you all. According to my knowledge some herbals are really good for your skin. You can use aloe vera for your effected skin. You should also use green tea for your healthy skin. Its really work. Must try it.
