Poison Ivy

My hands are filled with it right now, because DH work pants had plenty of it. Picking the pants and placing it inside the washing machine or dryer did it. I got it Thursday, then we went camping on Friday. Since I didn't have much to do, when my hands itch, I had to scratch. They spread to my other hands and one of my fingers is swelling. I can't even bend it to help hold stuff that I am holding.

I could not stand it today, and I remember what I do when I get this type of itch when I was young at my parents house. I lit a candle and let it drip on the itchy part. I did it around 10am today and right now is 4:19pm and still not itching. I told DH that I should have done it yesterday when we got home from camping, before my finger got bigger.

So, when they start itching again, all I have to do is drip some hot wax on them. Even the calamine lotion did nothing for it. I also have itch spreading on my skin. If I get itchy enough, I will have to drip some hot wax on those too. Forget drugs and spending the hard earn cash. Un-itch it with hot drippings from a candle. Try it, and you will see what I am saying is true. And try it for anything that itch for a while, like plea bite, mosquito, bugs...etc.
