  • We went to the doctor and got this stuff in a bottle and had to pour it in bath water and soak in it. Washed everything. It didn't take very long!

  • Nope, but I know people who have and you shouldn't be ashamed of it if you do - it's highly contagious and will drive you bonkers itching.

  • We do too. My son and I. How long did it take for you to get completely rid of it? And how did you get rid of it?

  • Honestly I don't remember to much about it, it was embarrassing and no one wanted to talk about it. All I remember is it was treatable by their Doctor.
    One of my friends was hospitalized for it because they didn't have insurance and it went untreated.

  • It was in a bottle like cough syrup and we had to pour it in our running bath water. I have no clue what it was. I was 15. Sorry!

  • My brother did and he had a body wash to use in the shower and a lotion to put on everyday...a couple times a day. I think it took a week or so to go away.

  • Omg, we only got lotions, and my son is getting better, but it has been over two weeks, its not so bad on me, but I do know that it is contagious and unless I get rid of it he isn't going to be completely over it.. Ugh. This is so frustrating. We also stay home all day and don't go anywhere so we won't spread it.
