What Self Help Strategies Do You Use When You're Having The Worst Flare Up Ever And Your Doctors Appointment Is Not For A Few Weeks?

What Self Help Strategies Do You Use When You're Having The Worst Flare Up Ever And Your Doctors Appointment Is Not For A Few Weeks?

I am having a terrible flare up. None like I have ever had. My skin is on fire and itchy I've run out of my creams.

What do you use to moisturize?

I've tried to meditate, but I can't sit still.

Help!.

Just plain old vaseline after a cool bath in bath oil (or any petroleum jelly TBH, Boots own brand is far cheaper than Vaseline)

I use cold pressed coconut oil. The boil water for a homemade remedy tea. I use ginger garlic and turmeric. I use a cheese grater to grate some of each into my boiling water. Pour over a strainer into cup and sip. It won't give you immediate results but it is a natural way to put the fire out. I drink a cup a day to keep the flares at bay. Good luck !
