I have always had dry skin problems from forced
air heating. It seemed to just get worse and
worse in my 30's and beyond. It got so bad a few
years ago, I went out and bought Baby Soft (baby)
laundry detergent. It also has some softening
agents so fabric softener is not always needed.

Evidently the perfumes in detergents, etc. were
causing me more problems and I was not aware of
it! So, give baby detergent a try--and choose
your hand/dish soaps wisely!

Glad to hear I'm not the only one to suffer this one: I keep a bottle of cheapest baby oil near the heat register near the shower, with a spray top off a window cleaner bottle. After a shower, I spray lightly the itchy areas. Changing detergents hasn't made much difference. Glad you got relief!
