In the last few weeks I have been dealing with hives on my legs. I haven't yet figured out the source nor have I ever had this problem before, but let me tell you the itch can be awful! It's like a bunch of mosquito bites that crop up here and there. I have discovered a method that works to get rid of the itch. I thought I would share for those who suffer this annoyance.
1Start your bath water and pour the Epsom salt into it. I get it as hot as I can stand.
2Get in and soak at least 15 min massaging the affected area. Warning this will activate the hive areas for about 2-3 minutes as the salt works!Then it will subside and stop altogether.
3Before you finish soaking and this is an important step as it will keep your skin from becoming too dry as well as exfolliate the area(s) your working on.
Take your sugar scrub (I have found that Bath & Body Works Eucalyptus Spearamint seems to work best)and go throughly over the area(s). Then continue massaging the area all over in the hot water. That's it. I use Palmer's products in the mornings and at night to help minimize scarring or discoloration on those occasions when it is itch or die!
4This will completely alleviate all itching. Most of the time one session will do it. On occasion I have had to do it twice but no more then this.
I hope this works for those of you with a similar problem.
