How $1.49 can ruin your day

So I think I am allergic to my body wash. I just got a new scent last week and ever since my entire body itches like I have poison ivy. At first I just thought my skin was dry so I put lotion on. Still itchy. I shaved my legs. Still itchy. I washed all my clothes and sheets. Still itchy. The thing is, I’ve been using Suave as my body wash for years and this is the first time I've suffered the side effect of itchiness. So I don’t know if it’s just “coconut crème” or if Suave started using a new chemical I can't use. The problem gets worse: I’ve itched so much, I’m starting to get tender in certain spots on my arms and legs so now it feels like I’m itching a bruise.

Which is worse: itching or aching?

I would say aching is worse. Itching at least you can scratch and have temporary relief.

Itching is definitely worse... you can take some advil and get rid of the aches. Itching drives to the edge of insanity!
