    I thought I was the only one afflicted by itchees??? Mainly the legs, from the scrubs. Seems white doesn't bother me, but the colors do . . . Sometimes the hospital detergent bothers, sometimes not, but when it does, I haven't found anything that helps, either, joyrochelle. Will monitor this thread for pearls . . . -- D

    AVON Cracked Heel Repair cream......

    I use it mainly on my face, arms, anywhere that's dry.... plus it has a drop of lidocaine in it so it eases the itchies too.!!!!

    (I have really really sensitive allergic skin...but for some reason I can use this)

    I have really crummy skin that is really dry...and I react to most everything. I itch most of the time (my dermo gives me Atarax to take when it is so bad it keeps me awake). What works for me is Aveeno fragrence free body wash. Sometimes I wash with Baby Magic baby wash with aloe & vitamin E. I use the Aveeno fragrence free lotion or Suave Naturals (vanilla floral)...for some reason it is one of a very few scented lotions I don't break out in a rash from.

    I like Avons Silicone Glove hand cream. Works really well in the winter. My hands gets so dry from the CHG soap we use.
