I have been looking for relief for itching caused by the shingles
An awe, Thanks to old fashion kitchen magic. My eldest aunt in Wv and I came up with wonderful relief. She has always looked at nature as a medicine cabinet.
I did online research and knew I wanted aspirin in the mix . It is to help aid in pain management. And crushed oatmeal is used in bath water or directly on poison ivy to dry it up. One thing I did not know was the healing power of milk.
She said she used it in the eyes of her kids for infection and in the eyes of a cat.
So I used 2 crush aspirin maybe 2 tablespoons +/- can milk , as I do not have access to a cow.
And enough crushed oat meal to thicken.
After the first application I went hours with out an itch. Where hydrocortisone cream was needed every 10 minutes.
I used this magic potion, a few times and now my hives are dry and the itch is gone. I still have the pain that is not easy to control. I am on several Dr ordered drugs.
I feel awesome now that I have half the battle of the first week Conquered. I have 3-6 weeks to go.
But I am so happy I get to have Thanksgiving dinner with the kids today at Amy's Home.
Yea! for home remedies !
Have a wonderful day and remember to laugh and play.
