Homemade Itchy Treatment: Cold applications

Because cold and itch travel along the same nerve fibers, the use of cold can "jam the circuits" and deaden itch. Methods of applying cold include the following:

*Cool water, either by running tap water over the affected area or placing a cold clean washcloth on the skin

*Cool showers.

*A cool bath; products that contain colloidal oatmeal are available over the counter as an itch relief bath.

*Ice packs, either the commercially available type or ice cubes in a plastic bag.
