I finally got over a bad case of it on my hands from picking blueberries. I found it was growing up the trunks of ALL my bushes. I tried several different things but what I found worked the best was get a bowl and pour enough epsom salt to cover the area you are treating, add just enough water to start the salts to dissolve, then pat the salts on the infected area. It really helps dry it up. Let it stay on as long as you can then brush off the epsom granules and use a hydrocortisone cream. I was amazed at the relief I felt! I hope you all get relief fast, I know its not fun!
