    Try an antihistamine, this helped me. If you bathed it means that the fragrance in the soap you used is irritating your skin. Avoid all scented soaps.

    My skin is insanely dry at the moment - it sucks up moisturiser like blotting paper and is worse in winter (not too bad in summer) I find a couple of moisturisers work well for me.

    I'll send this then see if I can tell you what they are.

    I don't think it's your estrogen pills causing this as I don't take anything except bio identical hormone cream but I get the same itchy itchy itchy at night when I first go to bed and through night. I take 1\2 anti histimine which helps but hormone balance can cause this. Make sure you hydrate your skin with moisturiser and hydrate your body and drink plenty of water

    Hi Susan. try salcura junior daily nourishing spray. not only does is smell calming & soothing, it is fantastic for itchy skin anywhere except face/genitals. i get terrible eczma on one foot (bizarre) & its the only thing that relieves the burning & itchiness. it sinks in quickly & leaves skin soft - not greasy at all. i swear by it. x
