I'm looking for a gentle soap that won't make my skin itch.  I've tried Tom's of Maine glceryn soap and Dove Sensitive skin and others but I don't even know what to try next.  I use a sensitive skin lotion after showering and that helps for a little while.  Any suggestions?

Jergen's soap is real gentle. Also, sounds odd but sometimes people can handle lavender better. If you want to get more insane than that, baby wash might help. I personally use lavender and Jergen's though. I use the baby wash on the monkeys hehe

If you are OK with a particular shampoo and it comes as a 2n1 shampoo and conditioner. I use Pantene 2n1 classic clean as a full body wash helps with dry skin and no itching.

Thank you so much for your suggestions. I will try these and see how it goes. I appreciate your imput. It's nice to have people who have the same problems that I can turn to.

If you have dry skin that is very itchy... use AML Actin Lotion in the morning and CeraVe lotion in the evening... It works.... they are high dollar but works...

I actually don't use soap except on areas that smell bad from sweat. Once every week or so I will wash everything with a cucumber dove soap but most days I avoid soap (my under arms get washed every day).
