This is clearing up finally

Posted , 2 users are following.

This is my second time having this lovely condition.

It's almost 3 weeks since the breaking out started and the itching has been hellish.

It has stopped breaking out, they are flat, itching gone and now just need to fade!

Here is what i found finally helped. Take 2 mg lysine and 2 mg d3 morning on an empty stomach and again at night. Bath in tepid water with a cup of each baking soda and epsom salts daily. Apply calamine lotion after bath or shower. Avoid hot shower or bath, working out, chocolate or any foods high in arginine.

Hope this helps someone.

    I just read the recommendation of L-lysine dosage to treat is up to 3mg a day, so i will reduce my dosage.

    Just about gone now after continuing with baking soda and epsom salt baths. Off the antihistamines and no longer need to put calamine lotion all over. Started taking a tablespoon of flaxseed oil in the morning. It's really good for your skin. Hoping this will help the lovelies fade quicker.

    I haven't bought into the Prreze because of the cost and also because it may not work for me.

    Just thought I'd update at this is almost 5 weeks since the first break out (not the patch)

    One last eruption happened on rear upper thigh which is now flat and nothing new for a week now. The last ones to appear were on the arms and upper thighs. This is how you know it's coming to an end and about to fade away. So often it looked like it was subsiding, only to be disappointed the next day when it got worse again.

    Still having daily baths of epsom salt and baking soda. They are fading but still visible. Started skin brushing again which I missed doing and felt gross.
