plain vasaline

I am currently dealing wit the "mad itch" right now....plain vasaline has been my friend after pulling my hair out for a few days....works great
—Guest old remedy user


I have had blood work done to find out what the itching is caused from. Steer clear of Sodium Bensoate, yellow #5 and Tartrazine. It is in everything including hair care products, body washes, mouthwash and all kinds of foods. Eat whole foods and steer clear of packaged foods. Take B12 and Vitamin C. Has helped a great deal.

it. drives me mad

This itch problem is driving me insane! The itch is is hand in hand with a burning sensation that causes a few hours of either no sleep or restless sleep. I have found some comfort in a cold wet facial towl it seems to make it better and soothes the itching/burning sensation!

—Guest Yamini

stop the itch

try washing area with Margo Neem soap, 2-3 times a day. Towel Dry , apply Candid V gel internally, on the outer skin apply Scaboma liquid. Let dry. Wear cotton undies, throw out old undies frequently to avoid re infection. Try as much as possible to circulate air near affected parts, dont wear undies at night.

Vaginal itching

I think there is no harm in using natural coconut oil, at least 3 times and wash it with normal cold water before applying the oil. Warm water or warm pads makes the itchy skin more active and it will itch more. Please response if it helps.

vasaline & heating pad

I am 33 wks pregnant with such a dry mad itch I cant sleep and I am nearly in tears. The ONLY thing I can relief from is applying ALOT of plain vaseline and the sitting on a heating pad, OR getting a cold compress on it. I find sleeping with the heating pad on low between my legs, with my knees propped up/open with a pillow lets me sleep at least until my baby wakes up!

—Guest anita


I have hasd severe itching for a long time and no remedy, I also have been to the doctor, even checked me for transmitted stuff, funny thing I haven't had sex in abpout 15 years! I have stopped using dietary sugars, diet drinks, thought this was the culpret, haven't changed soaps, havent used different cologne, makeup, thought it was a contact dermatitis, but it isn't, I have tried taking acidopolis, drinking buttermilk(the good bacteria for stoomac) and eating yogurt. I stopped eating meat for awhile, just veggies, and still the same, oh the undies, changed to pure cotten, but sdame thing! a "mad itch" and it is really bothering me more and more. yeah the menopausal thing, so dry, I have used creams to stop the dryness, but nothing seems to work, even tried drinking the pure vinegar , so if anyone does have a remedy, I suire would like one!
