Another vote for garlic. Three weeks of intense itchiness to the point I felt like I was hallucinating. No external hem but the whole area was swollen and very sensitive. It felt like it was raw. I read these posts and went with the garlic since it was the only thing I had. I soaked a cotton ball in the liquid of a jar of minced garlic. Slapped it on and man did it sting. The stinging actually felt good compared to the itch. The next day it was not nearly as swollen and was not itchy until after noon. I did the same thing that night. By the third day I am not itchy at all. I am going to do it again tonight. Hopefully tomorrow I will be as good as new.
