    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    I have these too. I recently got it, and at first didnt care. Now i have to worry about it in school, or anywhere.
    The only think that help me take it away for a few days is taking a hot bath. Nothing inside it, just water. Helps my skin not get like that for a few days. Thats the only thing i found that helps me beside medicine. Medicine makes me drowsy though, so i rather take this.

    I just bought a Shower Filter Water head (cost about $30) and the filter will last for 10,000 gallons. The filter cost is $10 -replacement. I wanted to eliminate the chlorine from the water and it makes the skin and hair feel better. Also try the other lady's suggestion - using Hydrogen Perioxide in the tub- soak 20 min. but put the 1 bottle on with a wash cloth while still dry (outside of the tub) then put the rest in the tub to soak.
