    I usually just put calamine lotion or something with Benadryl to stop the itching

    THIS WORKS!!!!!!!!!

    Go to the store and buy a bar of lye soap... Maybe .29 cents... Follow my instructions carefully...

    1. Get in the shower and get wet and lather up real good on all the infected parts and surrounding areas, then turn the water off. Stand there for a full 10 minutes. Lather up some more if you want but don't rinse yet...

    2. After a full ten minutes of standing there cold in the shower, Start to rinse off really really wel. Rinse for at least 5 minutes. Rub and use a wash cloth during rinse.

    It will stop itching within an hour and be all but gone in a few days. If you have it really really bad, repeat the process after 3 days. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I'd tell you my story but it's very embarassing. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    theres a product called "super ivy dry". works really well. dry's off the surrounding skin and keeps it from spreading.
