    I used to be cold all of the time, but after my flap surgery in 2013, I'm not. It happened after another surgery in 2004, but it lasted less than a year.

    Currently, I'm cold about a third of the...

    You mean washing you once a day versus once every three days or three times a day?

    I'd try something pure like shea butter or coconut oil to see if it is an ingredient in the lotions.

    Does the same happen when you're getting soaped up there as well?

    Sensitivity to a lotion ingredient?

    Try pure shea butter, maybe.
