    Hello, you have what is called aquagenic pruritus. good enough you have found the cause of yours, just avoid the sponge. you can still have a good bath without sponge. there are foam sponge or towel-looking sponges you can try. good luck

    it doesn't require treatment especially once you have realized the culprit. some people itch when the water is hot. but ok when it's cold. try to creme your body soon after bath, dry skin worsens the itch. feel free to clarify any confusions. cheers
