Emergency relief for Itching!

Equal parts distilled witch hazel and aloe vera gel kept in a spray dispenser in the fridge – shake before use and spray on affected part when required (not to be used for cold-induced urticaria).  Witch hazel (hamamelidis) provides an ideal soothing medium noted for its anti-inflammatory action (Bartram 1995, p455), Aloe vera is well documented for its anti-inflammatory and healing properties (Davis et al. 1994 p81; Graf 2000 p5; Mantle 2001 p102).

German Chamomile

Relieves allergies, much as an antihistamine would.

Oatmeal

An oatmeal bath may help to relieve itching.

Chickweed (Stellaria media)

Applied as a poultice (crushed or chopped herbs applied directly to the skin) or added to bath water, may also help relieve itching.

Several homeopathic remedies, including Urtica urens and Apis (Apis mellifica)

May help relieve the itch, redness, or swelling associated with hives.

These are only a few ideas to try, but please check with your Dr. first. tongue  Teri

Nutrition for Healthy Skin & Good Health

http://www.umm.edu/altmed/ConsConditions/CutaneousDrugReactionscc.html#Drugs

"Vitamin C (250 to 500 mg two times per day) stabilizes certain types of skin cells and stops reactions.

B-complex with extra B12 (1,000 mcg per day) aids in skin health.

Vitamin E (400 to 800 IU per day) improves circulation to your skin.

Zinc (30 to 50 mg per day) supports the immune system.

Bromelain (125 to 250 mg two to three times per day) reduces inflammation.

Magnesium (400 to 800 mg per day) may help prevent spasms in the bronchial passages."
