I have taken these pills for five years. No troubles, and I feel good. the itching started one month age when I stated taking vitamins recommed by my doctor. I have an appointment in two week to see him. I would like some comfort now.

I'm not a doctor or health care professional, but I've used oatmeal baths and some Aveeno products that contain oatmeal to soothe poison ivy rashes. You could also try calamine lotion.

I am a licensed massage therapist. My first suggestion is to talk to your doctor about the rash. He/she may want to take you off of a medication. I'm glad that you have an appointment. One thing that I have found for myself, my family and my clients is pure emu oil. it is think but scentless. It is an anti-inflammatory and tends to ease itching and pain. My mother has found it very helpful with some medication induced rashes as well - will quickly take the rash out. You can usuallly find emu oil at health food stores or similar locations, on (which won't reach you as quickly). You might try an internet search for your town and emu oil. That's probably my best suggesetion. There is a compnay Uniquely Emu that can usually ship it out in about 2 days if you can't find it locally. & they have a guarantee. You would apply a small amount to the affected area and can repeat throughout the day. I hope that helps and good luck!
