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

Awesome. Hives only recently became a part if my life. Idk why but I do know that the itch is excruciating. I googled for relief and found this page. Immediate relief once I applied vics vapor rub. Thank you all.


OHG, I couldn't believe it! I was calling a store to try to locate a type of calamine that worked in the past for me (kind-of) but would have to reapply over and over, but it was the best out there at the time. When I called the store and they said they didn't have it, this wonderful lady began to tell me of her dilemma with poison ivy not long ago, and how the ONLY thing that worked for her was Vicks vapo rub which she found out about on the internet. She strongly urged me to try it, and laughingly I said I had some at home and would, and would surely call her back and let her know if it worked.
We'll I just called her back and thanked her profusely. And now I'm going to go to bed to try to sleep which I haven't done for a few nights now. But I felt duty bound to share and recommend, and urge anyone who's suffering to try this, and end your misery!


BTW, my itching was related to an antibiotic reaction which had affected all of my back, parts of my chest,arms, shoulders and legs. I was a wreck, UNTIL Vicks Vapo Rub came to my rescue!
