This itching comes every year in late summer/early fall...when my tan fades. There is no rash or redness and only happens after every shower...warm not hot water. My skin is not dry & I moisturize every day. Itching is on my arms and legs....at times very severe. Usually lasts about 30 min...cool/cold wet compresses help. It seems to be systemic not a skin irritation or rash. By the time the season passes to colder weather...it stops. I am fine during winter, spring and summer.
What it causing this? I dread this time time of year...is there anything I can take prior to showering?
