Itchy...so itchy!!! How to make a great oatmeal bath
Warning, you might start to scratch while reading this....but there really is a great tip at the end.
Apparently just like the phenomenon associated with yawning (I yawn, you yawn, the cat yawns, we all yawn, great chain reaction), there is one for scratching (just thinking about an itch will make you itch)...so as you read this you might itch a bit...sorry.
So right there you know my skin and body is hyper sensitive.
Well, I learned take a Benadryl and it stops the hives and I feel better.
Yesterday though at work, itch, Itch, ITCH. WTF?
I have having a full blown reaction to something! Did my everything bagel have hemp hearts on it or something (i'm allergic to hemp)? Did I put a lotion on with hemp or latex (yep latex too, told you I was sensitive). Nope...no clue.
I took a Benadryl and got sleepy. Great sleepy and itchy now that is a great Monday morning I tell you.
36 hours later I cannot stop itching! Really. Every inch of my skin is constantly itchy. Really.
So here is the real part of this blog.
I tried to make an oatmeal bath and wrapped some oatmeal in cheesecloth. As the oatmeal swelled it oozed out and made a mess.
|8 packs for $14.99 at my drug store|
I used my coffee grinder to ground up my oatmeal.
|hey that's my coffee grinder|
I feel no better, but at least I am not out $14.99 plus tax and my skin is probably a bit better for it.
So anyone wanting a cheap oatmeal bath that is mess free, grind your oatmeal!
Now if you'll excuse me...I have find out what is causing this itching.
