The itching

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi all,

I have HS in both my armpits for a long time. I've been using Tumeric supliments for a couple of months now. They are working great with a flare up and a new boil maybe once a month. ( during my period ) Both my arms are looking much better and started to heal at some spots. My question, I always have a lot of itching underneath my armpits when open wounds are starting to heal. Sometimes it's so bad i scratch wounds open again. Does anyone has something that makes the itching go away or better to handle? Any products out there? Maybe home mode treathments?

Any suggestion are highly appreciated. 

Happy Monday smile

    Hey! I'm not sure if this will help but when I had chicken pox I'd get a rough gauze pad and just tap the area. It would help the itching so I didn't have to scratch.. there is dermaplast as well.. it's good for numbing the area (pain) and itching as well.. so you could solve two problems at once. smile

    Hello. My doctor has recommended me a body wash with ichthyol (i have from pharmaceris but i dont know if it is available in your country). i use it to wash areas with hs and when itching is really strong i leave it for some time. also epsom salt  baths bring me some relief.
