  • Where do you itch? All over? Just in one spot?

  • Hydrocortizone maybe? Take a bath in mineral oil might help. That helps my daughter.

  • I wouldnt shower or anything that will take moisture out. Put Vaseline on the worst areas...

  • Oatmeal baths might also help. Aveeno makes a special oatmeal intended just for that.
