Anyone know how to reduce a benign rash's horrible itching?
« on: August 16, 2014, 10:39:15 AM »
I just noticed theres this light red, itching area on my neck and shoulder. Its not worrysome at all, but the itching is driving me crazy. I couldn't think of anywhere else to ask, because... well the itching is driving me crazy. the constant need to resist scratching isnt helping either.

Hi Lunatone,
I get rashes and hives when I am anxious and they do itch what I do of course is try not to scratch because that just makes it worse and spreads or makes the hives huge I just had one on my lip looked awesome! lol. not really  :sprachlos020:

I make sure I just wash it really good and then use lotion that contains no alcohol nothing perfumed etc.. if it continues I would ask a pharmacist they will point you the isle and tell you what to get or they will help you find it.

Take care Peace :action-smiley-065:
Tye

Two medicines that have helped me with this problem are benedryl (diphenhydramine) which is over the counter.  There's also Vistraril (hydroxyzine) which is a prescription.  Both of these are oral antihistamines which often cause drowsiness.  Ask your doctor about this first to see if it's ok for you to take.
