I used to be so addicted to burning hot showers. I could sleep a lot better at night as nothing would be itchy and I finally felt like I could relax. It was such a bad vicious cycle. I only recently got out of the cycle but I relapsed a lot before I properly stopped. Even now I still get urges to jump in the shower and burn the itches away

        @Hafs I'm currently using epimax oatmeal cream. I used e45 when I was younger and then epaderm (might be the same thing I'm not sure). But I found the epaderm made my skin a bit more itchy even though it hydrated. Epimax works better for me as it is thin, not cakey, doesn't make me itchy and also hydrates very well. I haven't had to moisturise every day since I've used it

      Same. Still working on breaking the cycle though. I have eczema and psoriasis and those that don’t have one of the conditions have no idea what it’s like to not be able to sleep because your skin hurts.
