By the way, I am 20 years old.

Our skin sensitivities change with age. Your skin may be drying out and you need to moisturize after showering. You may be showering too frequently. I also start itching just before I get sick like with a cold or something.

It is a reaction between the chemicals in the water and your soap. For instance, I would use Coast soap in the city with treated water, but when I used Coast soap in a smaller town 5 hours away with hard water, I got terribly itchy skin. Sometimes it's the water and/or the soap. I would not use Dove as it really isn't a natural soap, natural soap are usually found at Farmers Markets and health food stores. And I wouldn't use baby oil as that is an oil that is derived from crude oil (yup it is) and crude oil is considered a carcinogenic by some health authorities. Although, when I first started getting those spots, the Dove did help, but I know that the natural bars are even better.

I had this. Generally i got it on my arms, it was so so itchy after i got out of the shower. I figured it was not from certain soaps or washes that i used in the shower, but it just become more inflamed from the heat of the shower. I went to the doctors and they said to take antihistamine tablets and a product called DermAid on the itchy bits.

I guess the best thing would be to go to the doctors. If it disappears after a few minutes out of the shower take a photo of the rash and show the doctor.

Your problem may be totally different to mine however.

You have Naturally Dry Skin- & your Shower is washing away all the Oils in it- that keep it Moist! Try to take cooler showers- & put on some baby oil all over you- as SOON as you get out... Doing those two thing SHOULD help... :)

Try using sensitive soaps like dove, etc. See if that helps.

Could be your skin doesn't have a lot of oil in it. When you use soap, it takes out a BUNCH of oil as it is.

If you're not using a moisturizer, that could make for some mighty itchy (possibly even ''tight feeling'' skin.)

Some people can only take showers every few days, due to how dry their skin naturally is.
