    Upper body itch skin lasting for 3 weeks and still on going

    After a session of swimming at a pool at a local university, I went into their hot tub that can hold up to 15 people. That evening and since then, I have had an itch on my upper body from my chest to my waist on the front and same area on my back.

    I went into the hot tub about a week earlier without this happening.

    It has been 3 weeks since this happened and the itch persist. I use Dove sensitive soap and wash my clothes in All Free and Clear. I don't see any rash or blisters on my skin.

    There is a spray moisturizer that really works when nothing else will and you can spray your back. It's called Skin-Lasting. Sometimes local independant pharmacies carry it or get it online. I love it and have given it to several friends.

    Dear An,

    I had never heard of SkinLasting before, but just looked it up. Great tip - it is all natural and paraben free.

    The spray is very helpful for the back.

    Thanks for the awesome tip!
