Re: What Can I Do For Extremely Itchy Skin?
For my itchy skin that itched the more you scratched, I used aloe vera. Thanks goodness for aloe vera! I don't know what I would have done without it. I got the rash, after taking lots of herbs. They were red bumps that itched like crazy...the worse that one can imagine.
Later, I had my dental amalgams removed, and now I only occasionally get those rashes. My fibromyalgia symptoms are mostly gone. I had a rash lately, after taking more herbs, on my left elbow. It was interesting to have the rash in that area, because last spring, my left elbow hurt so much, that I temporarily had to stop lifting my hand-held weights. I only can assume that this red rash is the result of toxins, leaving the skin. I talked with my dermatologist years ago about it, and he said that one of my rashes was caused by something that was too large for the skin pores.
I found also in addition to the aloe vera, that I would gently wash the site with soap and warm water. Then I would apply the aloe vera.
