I'm so ITCHY I'm gonna DIE!!!! - - Update... (orange) - *Ivy Dry!*

Damn skeeters!   I USED BUG SPRAY ALL OVER MY LEGS, ANKLES AND SHOES!  AND LOOK!    

ANYONE HAVE ANY "ITCH REMEDIES?"  Ya know, rub a banana skin on your horseshoe, spin around 6 times and say "jellybean!"   (Because the cortaid, benadryl, and aloe with lidocaine aren't doing a darn thing!)   

 

Okay, I've tried quite a few things - and found just some temporary relief.   But TODAY THEY ARE starting to ooze CLEAR STUFF.   So, It looks like POISION IVY.  So, who guessed Poison Ivy... .YOU WIN!    

So, a friend recommended this stuff called Ivy Dry - that I've never heard of.  IT's otc but apparently they hide it behind the pharmacy counter and you have to ask for it specifically.  Like it's some secret society miracle you have to "be in the know" to find out about.  Holy COW it works so good, I sprayed it on an HOUR AGO and nothing else has given anywhere near the relief this stuff does!  It's for poison ivy and bug bites....

Oatmeal bath - don't waste your money on the Aveeno stuff, just get some plain old oatmeal and grind it in a food processor.

Dab ammonia or vinegar on them.  Stings at first then better, for a while at least.

Hey, I have oatmeal!  I can do that, I'll make two oatmeal casts for my legs and walk around that way if I can!  Baaahaaahaa!  (Yes, I've gone crazy from the itching!)

Are you sure those are mosquito's bites? Look like fleas to me.

Onions mashed up. Stinks but works! Also dry idea deodorant in roll on works too.
