Body Brushing, Ice for Skin, Itchy
Carolyn (Florida, US) on 12/29/2014: I have experienced extreme itching on my upper arms. I have had hepatitis c for 30 years.
This is the only treatment (s) that I have found to be effective and long lasting remedies.
1. Use ice packs to calm the itch, I have slept through many nights with a bag of frozen peas on my arm.
2. The cure is body brushing. Use a natural bristle (as stiff as you can find) and start brushing your dry skin in an upward, toward the heart action. Start on the soles of you feet and work up the body, one section at a time. Really brush upward hard, make the skin red. On the itchy areas brush until you relive the itch. Don't forget to brush under the armpits.
Repeat this treatment as often as you wish. but daily, before bathing, is a must. You will find in the begining that you will do it more often.
In about a week's time the itch will be gone or mostly gone. But continue these treatments to maintain itch free skin.
I have tried everything, creams, pills, nothing works like ice to temporally stop the itch, and dry body brushing to eliminate the problem.
I believe that the itching is caused by toxic waste overload, the body brushing will send these toxins back through the blood to be eliminated in the liver. (my opinion)
This will work for you. Now go get brushing.
Peace and love, Carolyn
