Me and my itchy skin

So don't know what happened but for the past week my skin has been giving me a headache lol.  It has been red, itchy and dry.  While I do have problems with eczema I dont believe I've ever had my skin react that way before.  As you can see from a previous review, the cocoa butter conditioner just wasn't for me.  It provided an unpleasant scalp.  I am wondering if it could be the culprit for the rest of me but if so, it shouldve been washed off many showers/baths ago! lol I am still considering a major change to my diet once i figure out what exactly to detract. I do know that my body doesn't like too much dairy. Other than that I have further research to do.  The things that have been helping though:

peppermint oil with vitamin e oil baths.
using aveeno advanced body wash in the shower.

i have purchased some nubian hertiage products which are made of natural ingredients.  the particular ones are said to have healing properities. i hope they help!

i have the Nubian Heritage Indian Hemp & Haitian Vetiver Soap and Nubian Heritage Honey & Black Seed Lotion 13 Fl Oz

it has been used once so far and what i will say is they both smell super yummy.  and it took longer for me to start scratching again.

a thick lotion helps- like the one above or pure shea butter.  also putting an oil like the vitamin e oil right out the shower then the lotion.

i'll report any new skin changes or a soothing alleviation if such arises.
