Team Members as of lately .I have been itching very badly on my body and I also have long red like scratch marks appearing from time to time .and also very itchy has anyone had theses kind of marks (long red )
I use Jason gluten free body wash! It is the only thing I have found that does not make me itch.
I always have my back *itch, after showering. This morning, I applied some
*Dr. Teal's Body Oil With PURE Epsom Salts on my wash cloth along with the liquid soap. It has a nice fragrance, for those who would want to use, "As Is." This kept me from having any "Anti-Itch" gel applied to my back!
I have to be careful, when scratching. Especially now that I have fake nails. We don't know WHAT we do when sleeping! I try to use a pair of Cotton gloves, with lining turned inside-out. I then apply hand lotion at bedtime. If gloves come off, this give more of a chance for red marks.
Main key: Keep Body Moisturized! Whether with oils or lotions. This will help.
I do as well. It originally started awhile ago and would mainly come just before bed and mainly on my arms. Nowadays, it fluctuates, but my arms are still the primary. 🤗💕🦋
Yes I do! Mine usually are painful but don't itch. Try a sensitive skin body wash or soap and see if it help
Hi Helen Where have you been lately? so good to hear from you ,I am well thank you .just so happy we are getting ready for Summer.💕
Thank you Sissy I will definitely go and have a look ❤️
Another suggestion! Look in the grocery stores, where they have those small items for sale--in a LONG, "Box!" Here, one place has reduced some products for .50! Get a small spray gun to put the oil, inside! One doesn't need much! Just a few drops! Maybe you can use a sponge on a handle to apply the oil? Hmm. A thought.
The *Lamer body butter sounds good, also! I THINK we got *Dr. Teals at *Walmart. I'm almost certain I've seen at *CVS Drug Stores, also.
I SO Agree with you on "The Bra!" Once I'm home, it comes "OFF!" I have *one particular hook that keeps coming undone! So I try to NOT wear. LOL! I do not like the tightness of the bra. My skin is much more sensitive. I don't wear the wire bras. Too confining. I have some halters with NO adjustments. But all are SO Tiny! Maybe one day, I'll fine something that feels the correct size. Agape.
Hi my sweet Sister 😘💕 Thank you so much for the advise ,you have given me ,I think you are so very right about the adjustment of my shower setting .about the moisturizing body cream ,I am using Lamer the body butter and have also been using this for a very long time ,where would one buy the Dr Teal Body oil ,I also found that the wire from my bra is a irritation as well .,about pains it's mostly mornings that the pains are really bad but during the course of the day off not so bad after the medication .Thanking you once again and wishing you a wonderful day .
I know EXACTLY what you are going through! You explain it, "Spot On!"
1. I have changed the shower setting. It used to BOMBARD my back, So HARD! So a *Pulse setting can help, *Some. Also, turning water force, down.
2. Water temperature! I find the *Hot Water "sneaking up on me," after a while. So I'm adjusting the temperature down to a cooler setting, when possible.
3. AFTER a shower, skin MUST Be Moisturized! Remember. You have JUST washed off a lot of natural oils. The back and shoulders are not "easy-to-reach" places.
A. As of now, I am using *CeraVe *Facial Cream. That's right! It better absorbs into the skin. And only a small amount is needed. Has *No Fragrance!
B. *Dr. Teal's Body Oil. This has a light, but nice fragrance. Mixing both, the facial cream begins to curdle.
A T-Shirt may be needed to wear, over application. A second application later that evening, would be good. I JUST finished having a *SECOND application, today! *As soon as I felt itching begin. And when material touches my skin? Yes. I "feel the itch!"
4. When the itch STILL persist, I use *Anti-Itch Gel! It must be applied *thin and *quickly. Dries fast! Will start to peal if body is constantly rubbed.
I hope these suggestions, help. I still battle with the symptoms. But I am fighting them! Do let me know how you are doing, Kim. God Bless.
