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.

GOAL: Reduce A1C,BP,tryglicerides,and weight. HOW? By not eating added sugar, using Omega3s, base meals on veggies, water aerobics at least 3X week and using NuStep when I can't get to the pool.

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!

To be honest, I don't! I do get the occasional itchy leg myself, so I'll try that out, thanks, rather than scratching until they bleed....!

I think I read that the scoby is also good for athelete's foot, but I'd want to research that more before I used it. Not that I have fungal feet!

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.
