This is wonderful!
Again ... I feel like I have been given a most wonderful gift. All this information is invaluable.
I just had my husband apply liberal amounts of witch hazel on my back, and while it was still moist to fan it.
A few minutes of relief ... but now I'm off to get an icepack : )
I have to laugh! I am sitting on an ice pack, as I type. I have another one on my belly. I had not looked at the foods that are high in iodine and recently saw the list from Squirmy . . . . I have been eating high iodine foods and new blisters are popping up. I try to pop them without causing them to bleed. Once the fluid is released the itch seems to calm a bit and I know that is true when I have the blisters on the soles of my feet.
Ice does numb the skin. . . just wish I could find a body length ice pack. I take Dapsone but thinking about asking for the topical to see how it works. I still want to start a liquid gluten free replacement meal. I'd rather KNOW I was totally gluten free and iodine free than go through the trial and error process.
Dapsone dampens the 'suicidal itch' and I'm sooooooooo thankful for that. Just want it gone!
