Some great replies, but some of these be careful the products mentioned are not all natural meaning they have ingredients in them that will not truly help with the problem and actually only keep it ongoing. Please use Skin So Deep website to help to decipher the ingredient labels....it's free.
Using chemical free soaps, including shampoo and conditioner yes because it washes down the body leaving drying chemicals on the skin. Chemical free lotions, olive oil works really well for it, coconut oil is a great moisturizer but not as good as olive oil for this skin aliment. Laundry soap, bleach, dryer sheets etc. are all drying and irritating to the skin, go chemical free, there are plenty of products on the market now. All the above should greatly improve if not emlimante the flair ups, if not a shower/bath water filter to rid the drying effects of the cholirine which some people are much more sensitive to then others.
A product by Keys soap makes a great all natural anit-itch product for immediate releif. Forget about the dangerous sterioid creams
