I saw a remedy to help itching that used mango smeared on PI. Don't do this! My dermatologist told me that mango and cashews interact with PI and can spread them throughout the system. Unfortunately that was 3 days too late for me. Now if I even smell my favorite fruit Mangos, I start itching all over again at the initial reaction spots on my leg. I still have reoccurances and the initial exposure was 2 or 3 years ago.62ne2
