The itch is still upon me. The nasty rash that is covering most of myself hasn't budged an inch. I'm surviving by treating the symptoms every few hours which means lots of Benadryl and cool soaks in the tub with my extra mild tea tree, kelp and sea salt bars.
I've also concocted bath bombs from all my soothing soap ingredients. Thank goodness for them.
What's really helping is the sea salt soaks.
It's given me such relief that I've been using it on the itchy old Maltese who suffers so at this time of year from seasonal allergies. If left on her own, she will chew herself raw in minutes. Poor thing.
I went online and bought her the new spiffy cone of shame and some pricey sea salt meds for her hot spots. I'm tempted to use them on myself-minus the cone. What I need are mittens to stop myself from scratching in my sleep. If this keeps up I just may have to break down and pay the doctor a call after the holiday. Ugh.
