I hate when people who dont have it do the whole "oh my cousins uncles father has a patch on his knee and he put (insert ridiculous product here) on it and the next morning it was gone!"

People just see it like it's a mosquito bite itch. No one can understand that it can be so bad it can wake you up in the dead of night riving at it for relief. No one can comprehend that it's not one itch, it's hundreds or thousands of them all in the same vicinity. The only thing I've found that helps long term is a wholistic capsule called Pycnogenol, it can even clear mine right up. To do that, however, requires a larger dosage than I can afford, so I take a small dosage, just enough to keep it from itching, most of the time. And it has absolutely no adverse side effects, only good side effects, like strengthening the heart and other muscles. Don't just run out and buy it, though, because they are not all good or of the same potency, it has taken me twenty years of usage to learn good and not so good products.

The "have you taken your medication?" question is getting old at the mo as I've got quite bad morning sickness, and can't bear to swallow tablets. Yes I know more than anyone that I need to take it, but its difficult and I am the one that suffers the consequences, but sometimes I have to choose between getting out to work in the morning without vomiting, or taking my meds. They are my choices right now. OK???
