I had been neglecting my skin for some time now and I think it finally caught up to me. Every time when I work out, feel nervous, well basically anytime I raise my body temp. I feel a pinching feeling on my face, chest and back. It feel like ant bites. I recently bought these skin care products.

-HEMPZ Herbal Moisturizer (I apply it every morning before leaving my house and during each attacks)
-Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser (Use it every morning after I brush my teeth)
-Cetaphil Antibacterial Gentle Cleansing Bar Soap
-Johnson baby oil gel & Sarna Anti-itch lotion (I been dealing with hives for the past 6 month but they seem to be going away)

Is there anything I can do or must I go see a dermatologist?

That little itching feeling that you get is normal when people sweat or workout. It's just the tingling sensation that everyone gets when doing strenous activity. If it's very itchy and you ahve bad skin it could be sweat getting into open blemishes.

Are you using all those products at once, or one after the other, etc.? Perhaps some of the ingredients in each are clashing. What products were you using before?

Hi myskincare!
In addition to the excellent suggestions already given, I thought maybe the pores are getting smothered by something you are using and causing that "prickling" sensation. The Hempz moisturizer and the baby oil could do it. Definitely the Hempz - I think it has fragrance in it too, yes?

What have you been using for the hives that you said you've been dealing with for 6 months?

Not to compicate it further, but there is a line called Purpose that is relatively fragrance- and irritant-free that you might try. Or check with your doctor. Sometimes they have samples of lotions to try and might recommend something.

I hope you get some relief! It's awful to be itching isn't it!

No, not at the same time. I would say like 1-2 hour apart from applying the cleanser and the hempz. I take my showers at night and that is when I use the soap. Before that I used any lotion I could get my hands on.

Johnson baby oil gel & Sarna Anti-itch lotion. I kind of stop using Sarna b/c I couldn't stand the smell. I started to drink this brew which consist of lime, cayenne pepper, maple syrup, and boil water. I noticed a decrease on my hives which had bought a lot of relief.

As for my facial care I stopped using hempz and only use hempz on my body b/c I love the smell. I started to use Aveeno Active Naturals Daily Moisturizing Lotion which is turning quite nicely. My face feels smoother and I have less prickling sensation.
