Tackling Itchy Skin.

The American Academy of Dermatology offers the following tips to relieve itchy skin: apply a cold, wet cloth or ice pack to the itchy area for five to ten minutes or until the itch stops; take an oatmeal bath to help provide relief; use skin moisturizers that contain no additives, fragrances, or perfumes; apply topical anesthetics that contain pramoxine; apply cooling agents such as menthol or calamine or refrigerate your moisturizer to help achieve a cooling effect; and avoid scratching as it can irritate your skin and lead to infection.
