A plea for help

Alright, Blogville. I'm really itchy. I'm covered in this ridiculous rash that I think is an allergic reaction to some sunscreen I used last week. It's crazy itchy. Did I mention that I itch?

I've tried antihistamines, over the counter cortisol, and zinc oxide. Any other good itchy-type-rash remedies? I'm okay with weird ideas, I just need SOMETHING...

And yes, I'll go see a doctor Saturday if it's not gotten any better. But in the mean time....thoughts?

oatmeal bath. you don't have to buy the special stuff, just stick some in the blender to make it powdery. I forget how much, but I always found it helpful when I break out in hives from some allergic reaction.

I think the rash 'comes from within'---so would benadryl help? use a cream---or a pill--or both

or I get poison ivy real real bad as in 'blowing in the air around me'

try caladryl, too. get the clear not pink to add to your 'glow'

and sometimes----a conditon 'has to run its course' as in my ivy which ends up in blood stream and makes streaks on tummy rather than a rashy thing. these oinments only 'relieve' the itching.

hope for your best

I have no idea if it will help - but I used to put a mixture of Maalox, zinc oxide, and Aquaphor on my kids itchy rashes and it seemed to "cool" them. oh, and by the way...EEEEWWWW!!! ;-)
