Sadblossom: I knew you had told me a long time ago (a month or better) that the itch would come. I was hoping you would catch this inquiry so you could share your advice. Thanks so much, I'll get the cortisone creme as well as plenty of corn starch. Thanks so very much! Fern

You are very welcome !! And don't forget about the cold wet cloths or even light ice packs. Cool brings comfort. Stay out of the sun and heat. Tempid showers. I slept with open front pj's and let in the cool air also. I stayed in lite wt t-shirts during the day. Stayed away from anything that rubbed and absolutely stay away from bras. Friction of any kind made the itch worse.
Hope this helps too. I still remember that AWFUL itch and I have total compassion for you.
Stay with me here and we will get you thru this. And remember, this itch will pass and will stop.
God Bless!
