Itching After You Shower?

The Problem of Itching After You Shower

Lately, for some reason, I’ve been itching after I shower. Every time I get out of the shower I find that my upper thighs are itching like crazy! I mean, I’m a healthy dude, and I keep my body clean and my skin moisturized. For example, I put on Vaseline intensive care lotion as soon as I get out of the shower. I have to because, if I don’t, the way my upper thighs itch will drive me crazy!

I’m not exaggerating, y’all. They really feel like they are on fire! One day it got so bad that I had to stand in front of this little air conditioner I have in my room immediately following a shower, just to cool my thighs down from the burning, irritating itch.

Skin health is just as important as every other type of health topic, and I needed to find a remedy to this itching issue. I did some looking online, and I realized that I’d overlooked one of the most obvious things to do if one area on your body is itching more than others, and that was to use calamine lotion. Also check for acne. I remember my grandma used to use it all the time, I used to always wonder what was the difference between that and regular lotion. Some skin experts also suggested using menthol as a cooling agent after a shower. I’ll be 38-years-old next month, so I guess as I’m getting older I just have to use more things to moisturize my skin more effectively, and keep it healthy.

Pat Yourself Dry

Another thing some of the experts suggested was to pat dry instead of wiping myself down with a towel after a shower. They say if you pat instead of wipe, your skin will remain more moisturized and you won’t strip it of its natural oils. Other things you can do is change soaps, or just use some of the various anti-itch creams that they have out there at the site of the itching.

Maintain your skin’s health, people. It’s very important. Men sometimes don’t do it as well as women do, but more of us should. And, if you think it’s something going on with your skin that you can’t solve on your own, see a dermatologist, because it could be something very serious and you don’t want to ignore it for too long and let it get worse.
