Glad that treatment worked Itching can drive a person crazy.
Winter dry skin makes me itch. Lately, at the pool I put lotion all over me before getting dressed. I was missing the small of my back and that is exactly what kept me awake for 2 nights. Now I bring a long handled brush to reach that area. My left shoulder hurts way too much to get that area. The right shoulder is only a bit better I am getting PT for these shoulders.
The move is DONE. A big goal met! But selling the "old" condo has been a rough ride. I am dealing with problems and have to be diligent about caring for myself. Hoping not eating gluten/sugar will help my mood, pain, energy level. GOAL: Reduce A1C,BP,tryglicerides,and weight. HOW? Low carb plan with lots of veggies and water aerobics at least 3X week. I was doing this but moving stress has halted my good habits. Time to get this going again. I am worth it.
I do a lot of aqua aerobics and aqualates so down at the pool quite a lot. Occasionally get itchy feet and the vinegar and indeed the cream worked very well. When I actually picked up an infection I went to the doctor and got some anti-fungal cream but as an occasional bit of protection I use the scoby and also tea tree oil mixed into foot cream. I suppose I operate on the basis that the K-cream cannot do any harm .. I hope!
Does anyone else use their old scobies - other than for compost?
A while ago I made a cream with a chunk of scoby liquidised with some E45 cream. For the last few nights I have had very itchy legs in the night. I think it is something to do with the cold but last night I remembered it was sitting in the cupboard. I rubbed in on and within a minute all the itching had gone and it hasn't come back.
I frequently use the vinegar for stings and bites and also as a refreshing foot bath.
