I've been using a tea tree oil (also called Melaleuca oil) ointment, and it seems to be helping. It's not stopping the spread, but it does seem to be shrinking the bumps. Strangely, the itching hasn't been bad for me; I'm really surprised because I normally have a weak immune system. I'm taking ascorbyl palmitate, which is a fat-soluble vitamin C, and I'm wondering if that could be the reason I didn't get it so badly?
