    Hives & Rashes

    I was just reading your post about hives. Egyptian Magic is amazing! It will almost always take them. It also helps with the pain itching and scarring. It seems expensive BUT is well worth it and a little goes a long way. A jar is about $30-$35 and can be bought online or at some stores. I know in CA most of the Whole Foods stores carry it. I did order online twice from random companies and all went well. The third time however the consistency which is usually thick was much runnier and it wasn't as strong so I recommend a store that carries it or their website. Also I don't like thick creams usually but the thing about Egyptian Magic is it is only think for a few minutes and then absorbs right in and gives you relieve and soft smooth skin. I swear by it because it has helped me so much. I hope it works for you. Good luck with your hives. I hate them. Also I know this easier said than done but the less you think about or stress on the hives the better they will be. I found that they would upset me so much because of the uncomfortableness appearance and what they signified that they would always get worse. Now I put some Egyptian Magic on them cover them with clothing when possible and make myself go out and do something to keep my mind off them. It doesn't always work but sometimes it does. Good luck!
