I was wondering if you ladies could help me out with this one. It only happens a couple times a week. After I get out of the shower and even while Im in the shower my legs start to itch. It drives me insane. Do you possibly know what it could be from? I have to quickly dry them when I get out otherwise they itch really bad. My feet sometimes itch as well. Nothing else on my body just my legs and sometimes my feet. What could be causing this?

Do you apply lotion after you get out of the shower? Have you recently switched soap or bodywash?

I apply lotion when I get out. Ive switched numerous of times from different body soaps to see if it would help and nothing seems to help.

Hm...I found this site where a bunch of people seem to have the same problem and they offer lots of different ideas.

Itchy legs, no sign of rash or irritation - Dermatology

I hope it helps you!

Well out of those do you happen to shave? Maybe your skin is sensitive to shaving or something?

Do you use a certain type of lotion or body wash/bubble bath in your water?

Yea I shave but it happens whether I shave or not. I use unscented lotion thats also for sensitive skin. The shaving cream I use is moisturizing and the razors are for sensitive skin. So idk.

Well I do want to mention that every label that reads (for Sensitive Skin) may not be for you. Yeah it maybe true that you have sensitive skin, but I do too and the next person would too. Get what I'm saying? Go to your nearest dermotologist or skin doctor. The ingredient(s) maybe to strong for your skin. Why you're having breakouts on your legs and feet only? I have no clue, but I'm sure a dermo would have the answers. Hope u cure your legs soon!

it could be ur soap, razors, or even ur washing detergent etc etc
as i have also gotten this way and i have found out wat has caused it!!
I brought some cheap razors, just the schick disposable ones due to razor heads being so expansive, and the strip on them is making me itch!! so i remove that before i shave!! I also noticed i have a reaction to some fabric softeners, and also powders. and i have an itch when i use palmolive skincare!!

It could be your water but also if you take hot showers it contributes to drying your skin. Im really bad about applying lotion on myself after a shower.

This happens to me when I have severely dry skin. For me, body butters help a lot.

Immediately after a shower my routine is an application of my Organic Moisturizer mixed with several drops of jojoba oil. I swear by this method, no more itchies.
