Thanks Lisa, will give it a try. Yes I know I am just pissing in the wind, hoping for a cure, when I know allergies do not go away. Poison to your body is still poison, even at a baby dose. Unfortunately, my family (my place of residence) feel I need this medicine. So I will continue to plug away at trying to relieve the symptoms. tina
Hi Tina, Do you have access to chickweed or calendula? Both work wonderful on skin irritations and rashes. I have what the doctors say is contact dermatitis on my neck and both work wonders on it. You can make them into a salve, herbal wash or even do an infusion and make a lotion with it (the herbs can also be infused into oil but this will take quite a bit longer) Earlier this evening I posted a lotion recipe under the general team discussion forum that would work great for this. I would use a lavender hydrosol if you have access to it along withe the witch hazel and aloe in the water portion for this. Hemp seed or olive oil would be good for the liquid oil portion although this will make the lotion a bit heavier.
Seeing the rash is from the medication you will probably will not find anything that will make it go away other than discontinuing the medication (I'm in no way recommending this, just stating the fact)but certain herbs may ease the discomfort from the rash

Celia, sorry for snapping at a perfectly logical observation. Our name was misspelled. I have to work on my issue of accepting criticism without getting defensive. My problem not yours. I have Borderline Personality Disorder, sometimes I react before I stop and think. Can we just let this slip away. You have some excellent information to share in this team and I hope you will. Let me know if you need a new forum set up so you can share some of that great information.
I'm so sorry, I didn't mean to offend. I didn't know you were taking over. You're doing a wonderful job. I could email comments if you like but I certainly don't have the self-confidence to do what you're doing. Please accept my heart felt apology.
I could use help, not criticism, do you want to take over? Sorry for the spelling. I was in a hurry to get something done before work. I would love it if you or Jewel or someone else wanted to join me as co-leader Tina
I am trying to help us by starting. I have been on some medicine (baby dose) that I am allergic to. My skin is really paying the price. I have a rash so bad on my legs I cannot shave. Any ideas of relief of a persistent rash that will not go away and is leaving scars? I have tried Tea Tree Oil, Emu Oil, and various herb washes. It sooths the irritation, but the rash persists. Tina
