oil or vaseline
i believe in part the oil shuts and closes the pores suffocating the reaction and it forces the reaction/poison/infection to seep out...vaseline creates a like barrier too albeit a messy goopy one.
i also like oatmeal baths i use aveeno with colloidal oatmeal...actually they make a few products geared for itchy skin
i have my mattress encased in an allergy cover, i vacuum all the time
i wear socks,slippers, never barefoot,wash everything regularly
i avoid tap water
my air is always on at night
i have no idea why i get hives i get them usually at night Ive had them for 7 years on and off they control my life when they are not in remission
thank you for all the advice i am learning!
