    Goodmorning, sorry about that. You likely have a condition called Acquagenic Pruritus, it's a form of allergy to water. There are some preventions that people with similar condition have found helpful. Try and use hot water when taking your bath, use 100% cotton towels, don't use soap that has fragrance, try to keep away dust from where you step after taking your bath, avoid using of rug when you step after having your bath, you can also change your sponge to a softer one. Trying some of these should help. Take care and best wishes.
