    Hello madam...it seems you have something called aquagenic pruritis especially if you are sure the trigger is a bath.in particular,do you think it's water on your body that triggers the itch.how long after a bath does it last....have you tried using a different temperature of water or leaving your body to dry without a towel?

    OK thanks for that. I've noticed also that if I use warm water to bath, d itch reduces but if I don't use sponge at all I won't have any cause to itch my body

    Hello madam...I looks like we have he solutions... You may just have to contend with taking your bath a sponge and use warm water...you can also get creams like E45 anti itch creams to help with the itch...some people also do well with itch relievers like loratidine.

    OK thanks for that I have another question and it is: for the past 10 years I've been using glasses and I thought it would correct my eyesight problem (short sightedness) but to me no improvement

    Hello madam...Glasses don't tend to reverse visual problems..they basically act as an extra lens to help adjust your eyes to the defect it has.it's not meant to be a cure and as a matter of fact,you should have the strength of your glasses reviewed from time to time as you may need stronger ones as time progresses..if you don't like the glasses,contact lens are a less obvious option..there are other more expensive treatments like laser but they may not improve your vision to what the glasses would. you can also have your inner eye lens replaced but this comes with complications and it runs into millions of naira if available.

    Hi...you may simply have to have it recemented.if its beyond cementing,your dentist may have to treat the canal if not already done and then refill...the worst case scenarios removal if it cannot be salvaged.
