Best topical remedy for Juniper bush rash?

8123661?1341849476
After several annual rounds of this, I've finally determined that the rash I break out in each summer is an allergic reaction to the Juniper bushes in my flower bed.

They itch like crazy, and most of the topical anti-itch OTCs do not provide effective relief.

What has worked for you? Am especially interested in home and natural remedies.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

The aim of the therapy for allergic reactions is identification and removal of trigger factor. It is the most important and the only effective long-term therapy. Since you are already aware of the triggering factors, avoid them or desensitize yourself.

Local measures like ice packs and antipruritic lotions are helpful. Antihistamines block the histamine receptors and prevent histamine from acting and thus help in preventing rashes.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
