Dh Relief

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Last week I was suffering from some DH breakouts and hives (new makeup issue).  I went into my local Wallgreen's and decided to pick-up some new gluten free lotion to try.  I sampled Dove Cream Oil (extra dry skin/advanced formula) on my itchy arms and hands in the store.  I laughed to myself thinking, "I'm either going to feel a little better or a whole lot worse in about 30 minutes."

 

I liked the way the lotion felt on my skin and decided to purchase it.  I noticed on my drive home that I was no longer itching on my hands as I had all morning long.  I waited a few hours and my hands felt soft and calm.  I decided to go for the gusto and apply it to my whole body.  Same result.  My DH on my stomach, back, legs, and shoulders were no longer driving me insane.

 

I had a peaceful nights sleep for once!!!  So, I have been religiously this cream to my body for the past few days.  I actually feel normal.  WOW.  I forgot what that was like.

 

I am pleased to announce that my skin is calm.  No new breakouts.  My DH spots are healing & I have a new sense of hope that I can experience some relief!!!

 

It is very early on, but I really wanted to share this good news.  I know how miserable this itching can be and if this helps anyone else I will be so pleased.

 

 

Thank you.

Hmmm, that's interesting.  I may have to pick some up.  My daughter should try that.  She has rashes / dry skin all over her arms and legs that I'm starting to wonder if it isn't DH.  For my DH, I sometimes put preparation H on it which actually numbs it and helps with the itching.

It's no cure for sure, but my skin now is soft, it calms my itching within a few minutes, and I swear my reactions are left frequent. Good luck. I will have to try prep h too. Thanks!
