If you have itchy skin, apply vick's vapor rub (or generic brand) to affected area. The menthol feeling of the vapor rub will relieve the itch

This seems to be working. I have been sleepless due to the itching.
The Vciks Vapor Cream (did not have the rub) took the itch right away. Hope it stays away. My itching is from insect bites on my feet. Thanks for the tip.

I'm alergic to vicks no i itch more ahhhhh it hurts the pain oh.


I had an attack of hives - the only thing that gave me any relief was using the Vicks. Thanks for the tip.


absolutely amazing. I couldnt really sleep due to the inching and I was killing time waiting for a pharmacy to open to buy some anti-itch lotion- Thank you so much because i will no longer wait in agony. Great remedy and very cost affective since most people already have it in their homes


OH my, you are a lifesaver. I had an allergic reaction to amoxicillin. It made my hands and feet so itchy, I wanted to cry. I read your suggestion, and got immediate relief from the vaporub. Thank You!!


Unbelievable!! I woke up this morning with welts all over my torso (including thighs). I have no known allergies. After showering and applying aloe and an after-bath ginger-spray, everything was okay for awhile. In the afternoon, the itching began on my forearms. Then I read about the Vicks Vapor-Rub . . . what a difference! I applied it only to the exposed arm area on my arms (even though I was feeling itching elsewhere). Before 8:30 pm, I had no itching, and the welts on the rest of my body had disappeared. Now, this may not work for all (because I have no idea what caused the 'hives'), but it worked for me.

Thank you for this homeremedie web site!!!!
