I haven’t tried any of these remedies yet, but they do sound like they might be pretty effective, judging from the comments. Right now, I use a medicine I’ve purchased a few times, and it seems to alleviate the problem, but not greatly. I’ve also used Tiger Balm, which has about the same effect, and is also quite relaxing, thanks to the eucalyptus content. I would not recommend Tiger Balm if a person has really dry, broken skin, which is often the result of scratching; it’ll burn and that’s not pleasant! However, for mild irritation, it seems to work well.
