  • This same thing happened to me while I was pregnant! Then I started using baby oil right after a shower. I would rub a very generous amount all over my body and they pat myself dry. It helped a lot!

    Also if you head is itching try putting a small amount of baking soda in your shampoo. It should help with the itching. :)
