Treatment Rash

Hi Everybody

Have this horrible exema type rash, cant seem to shake it and the itching is incredible
I have been using moisturiser, steroidal cremes @ 0.02 %, goats milk soap, paw paw creme and oatmeal
cremes and antihistamines, just barely managing these symptoms.
If anybody has any info or help on this would greatly appreciated.

Back when I was Txing everyone keep talking about goldbond medicated. They all seemed to think it helped. If I am not mistaken we all called it riba rash and alot of people get it. I would call my Dr tomorrow. But maybe also try goldbond. Just a thought I am sure someone else will chime in soon with more info than me. At least it is not on your face because that would mean roceasa, which I got from treatment and it never went away. I'm sure you will be fine!! Take care, Debi

just to let you know it was a cream not the powder

I had the rash on tx too, and those creams only gave temporary relief.  The only thing that did stop the itching was a pill called Atarax.  Its not a over the counter drug and your doctor has to write a prescription.  The itching was so bad I wanted to stop tx until I started the Atarax and it was the only thing that worked.

since Atarax is an antihistamine and antidepressant (I think) Maybe if you took Benadryl,  would be nice if it was that simple huh?
I remember applying poltices of Domeboro on hives.  Baths in colloidal oatmeal?
I sure hope you get over that.
