Itching after bath

I am a 30-year old Civil Servant. My problem is that I usually itch after taking my bath. I have tried all types of medications (herbal and pills) to no avail. Somebody said that it could be a problem from my blood. Kindly help me to know what else I can do.

Itching after bath is usually due to dry skin. The bath water can strip away the skin’s natural oils, causing dryness and itching. Treatment may not always be as simple as applying a lotion or a moisturizer. Sometimes, dry, sensitive skin needs additional care to alleviate the irritation and dryness that causes the itch. Dry skin lacks moisture and may feel tight or itchy, especially after a bath. Cleansers, soap, and water can remove the skin’s natural oils that keep it supple and prevent dryness. The best way to prevent itchy skin after bath is to apply moisturizer immediately after toweling off. It is also important to avoid products that contain fragrance, menthol, and alcohol, as these can cause further dryness, irritation, and itching. People who notice itching after taking a bath may find relief by avoiding very hot water and very long showers. They should use cooler water for shorter periods of time to avoid stripping the skin of its natural protective oils. They should also avoid having their bath more than once per day.
