I tried your Rhuli, Benadryl Creme, Benadryl tablets, Rubbing Alcohol, & even Noxema triple skin cleansing pads.  They all helped for awhile, but now--after one

week, it is worse.  I tried not to scratch, but it is hard not too.  It was spreading even before I started scratching though. 

I guess it is time to head to a doctor maybe, or go ask a Pharmacist what they recommend. 

wish I could say all your remedies I read worked, but they did not.  I even put ice directly on it to be cool. 

 

Like one person said, I guess I will just suffer for two weeks or however long it takes. 

 

My mom used to get it really bad too, but she too would scratch. 

 

I have been awake 2 hours because of the cursed stuff.

 

H E L P!!!!
