I wish I could help ya on this one Clymb. I was really itch for about 2-3 weeks and now itchy on and off. Found out after a bit of research and talking to a few people here that my itchy skin, head, back, stomach and chest was from fat toxins expelling from my body. My dry skin has gone. Now, maybe the coconut oil could be drying your skin out or you could have a slight reaction to it. I shower in cool water and that has helped with my dry skin.
