It is not uncommon to experience a bout of itching
after bathing. It may last a short period of time and we often do not give it much thought thereafter. However, for some people itching after bathing can persist for hours or itching that is constantly present may worsen after bathing.
Causes of Itching After Bathing-
1.Water: Not drying the skin properly after bathing. Steam exposure without properly drying can have a similar effect.
2.Heat: Hot water can irritate the skin, dry it excessively and worsen existing inflammation.
3.Toiletries: Soaps, shampoos and toothpaste should be removed thoroughly.
4.Scrubbing: Vigorous cleaning by scrubbing can injure and irritate the skin.
5.Dry skin: Water and soap can dry skin which may only become apparent after bathing.
6.Skin diseases: Inflammation on diseased skin may be exacerbated by bathing.
7.Hypersensitivity: Heat and vigorous scrubbing can heighten abnormal skin sensitivity an injure the skin.
8.Infections: Certain microbes in the water can infect the skin while bathing.
1.Take shorter baths with lukewarm to hot water. Avoid very long or very hot baths. Soaking in a bath tub occasionally may not be a problem but frequent soaks that are long could cause itching.
2.Use mild soaps and shampoos. Baby soaps and shampoos are usually the safer option. Antibacterial soaps should be avoided. Always ensure that the soap or shampoo is thoroughly rinsed off. Shower quickly after soaking in a bath tub with foam bath or soap.
3.Scrub gently when bathing. Remember that dead skin cells will slough off on its own throughout the day and do not have to be physically removed. 4.Dry the skin thoroughly after bathing. Apart from wiping with a dry towel, also try to air dry the body for a short period before wearing clothes. 5.Moisturize dry skin after bathing. First ensure that the skin is thoroughly dried before applying a moisturizer. Always use non-scented (fragrance free) moisturizers with minimal additives for sensitive skin.
