Apple cider vinegar baths work to get rid of the itching but I had it crazy insane itching burning after research, This is how to neutralize toxins and stop itching fast and naturally, I took megadoses of high quality vitamin C it worked right away I mean fast I could sleep. I continued taking high doses and after a three days the itching stopped, I ordered the nanaparticles vitamin C and just kept taking it for one month, The itching was similar to what I had when I took antibiotics and I had fungal overgrowth. I was put on a potent anti fungal and I went on the anti candida diet until it was under control then I went a natural candida elimination formula that the clerk said killed candida along with oxygen drop, Cell food, to ensure all candida overgrowth was killed

When my young son had chicken pox, he was covered with the itchy bumps and it was driving us all crazy. I tried calamine lotion, oatmeal baths, etc. before finally poking a vitamin E capsule and applying that. The itching stopped instantly! Now, whenever we have itching worth mentioning, we reach for the vitamin E. Make sure it is D-Alpha, though, not the synthetic DL-Alpha. The synthetic E is useless. Don't waste your money buying it.
Shari, I should have mentioned another solution to your itchy problems - a product that I found locally at Dollar Tree called Vit.E with naturals supplied by Fruit of the Earth - It comes in Aloe Gel, Vit.E with Natural Gel, Vit. E cocobutter, etc. This Vit. E with Naturals get stuff is fantastic-the only thing that I have ever found that will stop the intense itching caused by that confounded plant called poison ivy/oak -not only stops the itching but dries it up -the naturals in it are herbals like calendula, burdock, etc. Anything that stops that horrible itching of poison ivy should help with any itching also. The only place I have found it here is mentioned above but I suspect it can probably be found in health groceries (probably much higher than the $l price in above mentioned store) When I found this [product stopped the itching & also dried the rash up within 3 days I look for more every time I go through their store and have a good supply in my bathroom.
Also for another wart remedy, I have had patients tell me that piercing a Vit.E capsule and squeezing it onto their warts 2-3 times a day made them disappear.

For decades, I have had periods of severe itching and I have tried everything to relieve it. Finally, by accident, I applied some white vinegar to an area for another purpose and found that the itching stopped there for at least 24 hours. Now before I take my regular evening shower, I take a white vinegar shower to stop the itching. I leave the vinegar there for several minutes before taking my regular shower with soap. After my regular shower most of the vinegar odor is gone. Anyway, what is a slight odor compared to severe itching?
I don't that witch hazel can be a cure but it is great for stopping an itch of the skin. I had a bad rash on my hands years ago and when they would itch I would pour witch hazel on my hands and the itch would stop right now and it did me no harm at all.
