Can't go the doctor because there is no relief at work. When Hubby had his surgery I got two days off by borrowing two different people. It's like playing chess, gotta know how to move around those helpers.
Anyway back to my itching story...I have tried just scratching...with a hair brush, with my nails, with a back scratcher...nothing stopped it. Then I would put lotion all over. Soothing for a short time. So I started using lavender oil and that seemed to help. Slather up at bedtime then wash off in the morning.
I had a better idea. I had a set of Lavender products so there was a wash. Okay, I thought it was a wash. I don't shower with my glasses. I'm singing and slathering this stuff every where on me in the shower...then it starts to burn...in the tender places...oh, my goodness, did it burn!!!! I rinsed and rinsed and rinsed and was still burning in certain areas that had not even had a direct application. I was a victim of run-off. Through the crags and valleys of this ole body, water runs to the lowest spot.
When almost every thing stopped burning I toweled dry(no pictures). Then I made the report to Hubby. He laughed. I laughed and said it felt like what I imagine Ben Gay would feel like in your underwear.
THEN I GOT MY GLASSES. It said, "Invigorating, refreshing foot massage potion. Do not use on over-dry or tender feet". Well, it didn't hurt my feet and I do seem to be itching less today.
