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.

Witch hazel! It's next to the rubbing alcohol and hydrogen peroxide. It does sting for a bit from the alcohol, but it works amazingly for my itchy skin. Also, any thick salve would work. Don't get anything scented. I use O'Keefe's working hands on itchy areas since it's thicker.
