Once again, as with the previous question, it really is difficult to say what the problem is without having a look at it myself. It may be eczema for which a good moisturiser such as epimax or a MILD over the counter topical corticosteroid may be usefull, or may even be due to an allergic reaction for which an antihistamine may help. If you statred using a new cosmetic product, facial cream or even detergant recently this may add to it - Think carefully at what cahnges you recently made - By simply removing an irretant your problem can also be helped.
My advice would be to ask your local pharmacist to have a look - If he can help he'll prescribe something, but otherwise he'll refer you to a doctor.

Skin itches after a shower / bath - I have seen more that five dermatologist and nothing helped. I am currently seing a Neurologist, who prescribed something and it feels to be working very slow. I am using cold water to shower as warm / hot water makes matters worse. As soon as I apply moisturiser and when the skin settles it starts with the "pins" like pain. I have had this problem since 1986. I am really desparate now.
