    Sores on my arms and legs

    I am 63, female, taking Warfarin, Lovastatin, and Atenolol BP meds - and have been on meds for several years; and that the labels say the meds could cause a person to itch. I just finished an Antibiotic and take Mupurin Ointment to help heal my sores (per Dr. Rx) I have put several type of other solutions, Hydrogen Peroxide, Witch Hazel, Tea Tree Oil, Alcohol, Lotions, and others. I have a medical background and always wash my hands, etc . I just read about a treatment using Hydrogen Perioxide to soak in the tub 20 minutes --using 2 bottles and her sore went away. I will try it.
