Like "There are tons of reasons for itchy skin. One that I recently found out is hypothyroidism. It causes dry skin. Also, your water with all the chlorine in it. We have a reverse osmosis filter on our whole house and it made a huge difference. If you have hard water you have stuff on your skin. One thing that I have been using with great success is Aveeno body wash with oatmeal. It gives me softer skin without the oily break outs of most moistureizers."
