Aloe vera is a good treatment option for chronic itch as it’s convenient for daily use. It has a soothing affect on skin, so it’s effective in treating itchy skin that is caused by irritation or rashes. You can buy a natural, unscented aloe vera gel, or you can get the gel directly from the actual plant, and then you can apply it to your skin just after you shower and dry off. It’s light enough to wear throughout the day, and it’s a great moisturizer so it treats dry skin as well as skin itch.
