Basically, a severe shower itch!
I suffer from this and its no joke. About 10 minutes after getting out of the shower I sometimes develope this itch on my legs and arms that is intense. Picture chicken pox on growth hormone after 10 years. You sit there and look like a crazy person. All you can do is constantly scracth all over your legs and arms. You literally cannot do anything else when this happens. Its debilitating. If you’re lucky it lasts for 20 minutes or so. I’ve had it last for over an hour. It slowly subsides. I sometimes sit there for 20 minutes after it stops to make sure it doesnt come back, it never does though.
So I did some reading on the net over the past couple of days. I just had another episode and could not take it anymore. I thought it was just dry skin. Thats where my tan is during golf season. So I had tried every lotion at every different time. Different soaps and washes. Nothing helped and some made it worse. The thing that I tried over the past 3 days is a very hot 5 minutes at the en of my shower. Just let the parts that get the itch stay under the water for a bit. So far so good.
This usually happens in middle aged men, although this has been happening since I was 25. Its actually classified as a disease. Another thing that could be tried although I havent tried it yet is taking Claritin. Its supposed to block H1 and H2 (histamine) and prevent the itch. Two other methods are using a heating pad or a blowdryer. It looks like heat is its best fighter.
