Response to Dry Sensitive Face Skin
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Takaaki,
Good day to you. To answer your question, our FACE & NECK THERACREAM is what I would recommend for your case. It's specifically formulated for more sensitive areas of the skin, so it is completely safe for use all over the facial and neck areas. It has amazing anti-itch properties so it will stop any itching from the skin, sometimes almost instantaneously.

Many other products on the market clog the pores of the skin because they contain petroleum and it's by-products. In many cases on the back of products, you will see it as mineral oil. Mineral Oil is the by-product of making gasoline from petroleum and since we use so much gasoline, it makes mineral oil very cheap for companies, therefore it makes the perfect (yet toxic!)filler.

It's absolutely horrible for the skin, and the molecules are much too large to even penetrate the pores of the skin, so it sits on top of the skin with a greasy feeling and can actually make the problem even worse than it already is.

Our products work in a completely different way. The skin actually has seven layers of skin, and our products penetrate through these seven layers of skin, to unpack any dry, oily, or damaged cells
to repair and restore the balance that is lacking in the skin. They are able to this because they are all natural, but not only all natural, they have the right formulation of ingredients.

I also recommend that you stay away from all prescribed creams, as they contain many harmful ingredients that can be detrimental to
the skin and it's cells.

Please keep me posted on your progress.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Red Bumps Would Itch Like Crazy

by Lauren M.
(Hoboken, NJ)

I have been dealing with some sort of a skin condition on my fore head for about 2 years. It started with one bump between my eyes and when I scratched it, it broke open almost as a blister would. It was definitely not a typical pimple because those usually heal and scab over and this never did. Over time I started noticing more bumps on my fore head as well as bumps on my nose and on my scalp. They are always raised, sometimes white, and tend to turn red when touched and they would itch like crazy. I tried many things (including seeing over 4 different dermatologists) as well as trying home remedies. Dermatologists that I’ve seen gave me prescriptions ranging from pimple creams to steroids and everything always made the problem worse. When I ordered these Aim 2 Health SKIN REMEDIES products, I was a bit skeptical, because I don’t always trust what I read online. I’ve been using the Face & Body Wash and the Face & Neck TheraCream on my face as well as the Herbal Shampoo Treatment on my hair for about a week and I’d say that everything is about 70% better. I’m very impressed and so happy to have found something that is finally bringing my skin back to its natural healthy state! Yours truly.

Response To Severe Itching & Spreading On Scalp
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello,

Thank you for contacting me about your mother's severe itchy scalp condition. The right natural ingredients make all the difference in the corresponding results a person will achieve. That said, the two products I would highly recommend for your mother are our HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT combined with our DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM.

1) At night before bedtime, have your mother rub in our specially formulated therapeutic DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM into the parts of the scalp and hairline affected. This double strength formula is all natural and penetrates the thicker skin of the scalp deeper and faster. Allow the cream to absorb overnight into the 7 layers of scalp tissue.

2) Next, have her wash her hair and scalp with our HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT which is hypo-allergenic and filled with nutrients. These 2 products, together, will unpack dry damaged cells to the deepest part of the scalp and restore much needed moisture and regain a healthy balance once again. These two products will further stop any itching and provide an anti bacterial and anti fungal protection on her scalp while it is healing.

Once her scalp condition is repaired she need only use the HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT to keep her scalp healthy and problem free.

Please keep me posted as to your mother's results.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Response To Itchy Legs
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Renee,

Actually, itchy skin syndrome can occur at any time in our lives, even if we've never experienced it before. Some factors that can cause your skin to itch uncontrollably are:

1) Long, hot baths can actually dry out your skin.
2) Scratchy clothes (like wool) can also irritate the skin.
3) Low humidity - during cold weather, the heated air inside homes and other buildings can make skin dry and itchy.
4) Certain foods or beverages can cause an allergic reaction in your body.
5) Emotional stress or feeling upset can cause the face and body to get itchy, red and hot.
6) Commercial soaps contain drying chemicals that really enhance dry skin syndrome.
7) Failure to moisturize your skin, (this applies to men, women and children of all ages!) can leave your skin desert dry and horribly itchy.

Here are my recommendations, follow them and your itchy skin will respond:

1) Shorten bath time and use lukewarm water so as not to dry your skin.
2) Try to wear only cotton or silk clothing - these are gentle on the skin.
3) Keep a humidifier in your bedroom at night for added moisture.
4) Watch for what heavier "winter" foods may be aggravating your itchy skin.
5) Keep stress to a minimum and learn how to "unwind".
6) Use only a hypo-allergenic, chemical free cleanser such as our FACE & BODY WASH that will quickly add much needed moisture to your skin.
7) Moisturize your skin daily with our HAND & BODY THERACREAM which will penetrate the skin 7 layers deep and add abundant moisture as well as stop any itching. This fast working cream contains plenty of vitamins and nutrients to fortify and protect your skin.

Please keep me posted on your progress Renee.

No More Itchy Burning Legs After Shaving!!

by Cynthia
(USA)

I received the products that I purchased today; and I must admit, they are excellent.I had a dinner date scheduled for last night, and had to shave my underarms and legs. I don't shave often, because I always get an itchy, burning sensation even after I moisturize my legs with lotions, I tried so many different types to find the ones that work and do what is advertised on the package, especially the medicated lotions that have Salicylic acid and hydrocortisone which are advertised as giving soothing relief to the skin. After I shave my legs, I've always believed that the itchy burning sensation was part of shaving and to get some relief I thought that I just needed to saturate my legs with creams and lotions until this condition subsided after a few days. Today, the condition was different: I found that your Hand & Body TheraCream is the best product that I've ever used in my life (and I've purchased many different creams in my lifetime). Honestly, I just couldn't believe the immediate soothing sensation, smoothness, subtleness, and the softness on my burning, itchy legs. Today, for the VERY FIRST TIME after shaving, I enjoyed my evening out with confidence, comfort, and smooth sensational legs in a nice sleek short dress. My legs and underarms felt so, so, good. I am so happy to know that your company has integrity. I am convinced and want more of your products. On my way home, I couldn't wait until I contacted you about my testimony regarding your product; I said to myself, 'No matter how late, I will send an email to inform that company about how wonderful their products are and how well they worked for me.

Thank you for creating such a fantastic combination of ingredients and being truthful about the expected results. I have become one of your most valued costumers. I am a believer. Thanks so much for your fast delivery. You all are awesome!!!

Hydrocortisone Thinned and Burned My Skin

by Nick Fuller
(Grand Rapids, Michigan)

HI Nanette,

Do you recommend the double strength thera cream for the damged/ dialated/ burned looking skin that hydrocortisone caused in a thinned skin area? Also which particular soap should i get? It has been a little over 3 months since I used any hydrocortisone cream and the area is still very red. It appears that it may be about 10 to 20 percent less red and irritated looking from a few months ago so i do have hope it will completely clear up. I hope this works it has been very bothersome and annoying and the doctor I went to said that it should clear up on its own, maybe this is true but I am tired of waiting. Thanks for the insight.

Nick

Response to Hydrocortisone Thinned and Burned My Skin
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hi Nick,

Good day to you and thank you for contacting me. To answer your question, I have seen 1000's of customers and their conditions and so many, like yourself, have suffered with hydrocortizone damaged skin. I can tell you that since the body's natural tendency is to heal itself, given the proper ingredients as those found in our products, the skin will consistently and progressively restore and repair. Yes, even skin damaged, burned and thinned by steroid creams.

I would certainly recommend that first you wash with our FACE & BODY MOISTURIZING WASH as this will begin the repair process to your skin. It is so gentle and pure that even the most sensitive and damaged skin will respond quickly.
Next I would definitely use the DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM as you had mentioned. This special formula works wonders on skin tissue that needs super extra care and rapid restoration. Rest assured that your skin will respond as the cells are replaced with healthy, normal skin cells.

I hope this helps and I am here if you should have any other questions or concerns.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Dry Cracked Right Foot With Thick Baby Toenail??? Getting Married Soon!!!

by Tierra
(USA)

For over a year and a half I have been having a rashy looking itchy foot that cracks and is painful especially in the mornings. Also my baby toenail is thickened with a weird tint to it and flaky. When I still had insurance my doctor told me that this was eczema and gave me a steroid foot cream to help but this only helped with the rashy part and then she told me to try lotrimin AF but that never worked. I am getting married in May and I do not want to have an icky looking foot. I am too embarrassed to even go get a pedicure now. I am scared that I will need to take a pill for the problem because I have SVT which is a problem with my heart that I take medicine to control. Please please please help me! Thank you!

Response To: Dry Cracked Right Foot With Thick Baby Toenail??? Getting Married Soon!!!
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Tierra,

Certainly an itchy, rashy foot that cracks can be very painful. It does sound like you are suffering from eczema but there are some things you need to know about using steroid foot cream! Steroid creams are harsh to the body and produce damaging side effects. These side effects include: thinning and discoloration of the skin, easy bruising, permanent dilation of certain blood vessels, burn marks on skin, itchiness, liver and kidney damage and a weakened immune system. Recent studies further reveal changes in the shape or location of body fat (especially in your face, neck, back, and waist), increased acne or facial hair, menstrual problems and impotence. Not only this, but steroid use almost always produces a "rebound effect" of the very symptoms you are trying to get rid of!

For our website viewers, I will explain that Lotrimin AF Solution contains the drug: clotrimazole which is an antifungal agent. It kills sensitive fungi by binding to and weakening the fungal cell membrane. This medication can produce severe allergic reactions such as rash, hives, itching, difficulty breathing, tightness in the chest, swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue, reddening, blistering, peeling, itching, or burning of the skin. Avoid this and steroid creams especially since you have SVT!!

Here is what I highly recommend for your condition. First, wash the affected area with our FACE & BODY WASH which is a hypo-allergenic and gentle body wash which contains absolutely no chemicals or ingredients that can be toxic to the skin. This will deeply cleanse and begin the repair process as well as remove environmental debris and bacteria.

Next, apply our DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM which is specially formulated for the thicker skin on the feet. The skin on the bottom of the feet is much thicker and harder to penetrate than other areas of the body. This formula has anti bacterial properties and quickly penetrates the 7 layers of skin on the feet to rapidly repair and restore the skin and remove the dried up dead skin cells from deep within the skin structure. It will also stop the itching and rash and relieve the redness as the skin is restored to a healthy balance. Be sure to rub the cream into the thickened toe nail as well.

Please keep me posted on your progress Tierra.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Hopeless Teen Male With Red Oily Itchy Skin

by Kelly
(California)

Hi,

I am currently a very confused and depressed teenager. My story begins about 1 year ago when suddenly after taking some Ziana topical cream my face started getting red. I am a very active, outdoor kid with an olive complexion. My dermatologist told me this was just a side affect. I stopped Ziana but I was left with this random flushing during different parts of the day. It was terrible and embarrassing. I would feel like 200 degrees at random parts of the day and when I wasn't flushing bright red I still had a redness around my cheeks odd looking on someone with my color of skin. I then turned to Minocycline which I liked for a bit returning my face to its normal color being able to get tan again without burning (I think it took out the inflammation while being on it). I then turned to natural medicine out of desperation. I went to a very strick diet of brown rice, vegies, some fruit, and soy, and some meats. I cut out all gluten and a lot of sugar but not completely. My face is now left with this redness that has good days and bad days. I went to 5 dermatologists to see what they had to say. One said it was seborrheic dermatitis another said it was eczema with atopic dermatitis. The dermatologists said I have had eczema my whole life (the topicals just made it worse and brought it up) they prescribed me Desonide and I didn't take that. The only thing that seems to help is when I go outside and be in the sun but when there's a span of no sun then I'm ruined. I WANT THIS GONE!!!! Please, please help!

Response To: Hopeless Teen Male With Red Oily Itchy Skin
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Kelly,

I can understand how very confused and depressed you can be with all that you have been through. The truth is, is that the skin and body need and thrive on natural remedies that directly address the deepest part of the condition that exists. It is appalling to me that one of the most negligent thing my customers tell me is that most dermatologists just DON'T WARN OF SIDE EFFECTS when prescribing steroids and other drugs!

You should have been told that ZIANA contains clindamycin phosphate, an antibiotic, and tretinoin, a retinoid which can produce side effects that include peeling, redness, dryness, itching and photosensitivity and may cause diarrhea or colitis.

Minocycline is an antibiotic that can cause diarrhea, dizziness, unsteadiness, drowsiness, vertigo, tinnitus, headache and vomiting. Minocycline increases sensitivity to sunlight. Prolonged use of Minocycline over an extended period of time can lead to blue-gray skin (permanent blue discoloration of gums) or teeth discoloration. Rare but serious side effects include fever, yellowing of the eyes or skin, stomach pain, sore throat, vision changes, and mental changes, including depersonalization. Symptoms of an allergic reaction include rash, itching, swelling, severe dizziness, and trouble breathing.

Desonide is the generic name of a topical corticosteroid. Use of topical steroid creams can cause the skin to develop a resistance with greater side effects which include: thinning and discoloration of the skin, easy bruising, permanent dilation of certain blood vessels, burn marks on skin, liver and kidney damage and a weakened immune system. Not only this, but steroid use almost always produces a "rebound effect" of the very symptoms you are trying to get rid of!

I have two very natural and deep penetrating products that I highly recommend to you for your face. You can use them daily. First, what you wash with is so very important and I can't emphasize this enough. Many products on the market today are loaded with harsh, drying ingredients that strip the natural PH of your skin leaving it further vulnerable. Use our gentle and pure FACE & BODY WASH that will deeply cleanse and balance your skin even before you apply our reparative cream which is an important feature.

Next you will want to apply our FACE & NECK THERACREAM twice daily. This hypo-allergenic cream stops any itching while it penetrates all 7 layers of skin to relieve inflammation and redness and helps to restore your natural balance. Both of these products are formulated with skin nurturing ingredients that repair, restore and replenish the skin.

Please keep me posted on your progress Kelly.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Itchy Bumps All Over My Body During Pregnancy

by Liza
(Vancouver, BC, Canada)

About 5 weeks ago I had what looked like a tiny scratch in the middle of my lower left leg. I thought it was a cut from shaving. It was mildly itchy. Over the course of 3 weeks, however, it had grown into a discolored rough patch larger than the size of a quarter, and was extremely itchy. I'm not sure what diagnosis I received (eczema?), but the doctor prescribed a 2% hydrocortisone cream, three times a day to start, and then twice a day thereafter. It has been 2 weeks, and I have seen some improvement, but I have now developed another skin issue: hundreds of tiny itchy bumps on both my legs, my arms, shoulders, back, sides of my torso, and neck. I feel like I'm covered in mosquito bites, but since neither my husband nor my daughter have these symptoms, bugs have been ruled out. My hunch is that I am having a skin reaction to the hydrocortisone cream. This has not happened when I've used it before, but I am presently 14 weeks pregnant. Yesterday my doctor diagnosed the condition as foliculitis, and said to first try an aloe vera cream, if that doesn't work try Benadryl once a day, if there is still an issue, come back to see the dermatologist. He didn't think it was the hydrocortisone, since he thought if that were the case the rash would be localized.

Last night I spoke to my sister in Germany, who had an itchy skin reaction to a cream during her pregnancy. This made me think that my reaction is related to the hydrocortisone. If I stop using it, the patch on my leg starts to worsen within a day. The itchy bumps are increasing all over my body and causing much discomfort throughout the day and especially at night. I'd like to know of alternatives to the hydrocortisone, especially since I'm pregnant. Additionally, is this a common reaction to hydrocortisone?

Response To Itchy Bumps All Over My Body During Pregnancy
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Liza,

While clinical studies have shown that topical steroid drugs should not be used extensively on pregnant patients in large amounts, or for prolonged periods of time, my first, very strong recommendation is to NOT use hydrocortisone cream at all during your pregnancy, especially a strong potency as 2%. The long list of potential side effects just doesn't justify its usage. Since hydrocortisone usage can weaken the immune system, it is very possible that your outbreak is a result of its usage. That said, here is my advice to naturally repair and restore your skin to a healthy state.

My recommendations for you are two of our skin repairing and health building products. First, wash with our FACE & BODY MOISTURIZING WASH as this will begin the moisturizing and repair process for your skin. It will restore the PH balance to your skin and provide anti bacterial protection. Next, apply our HAND & BODY THERACREAM all over your skin. This hard working cream stops itching immediately, has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and penetrates the 7 layers of skin to unpack dry damaged cells and restore much needed moisture bringing a healthy balance back to your skin. Apply this cream as needed.

Vitamin-derived antioxidants from plant sourced ingredients not only make the best ingredients for your "inside", but for your "outside" as well. When your skin absorbs a natural moisturizer, created with only healthy ingredients, you're absorbing the nutrients in those ingredients which makes perfect sense for anyone especially for those pregnant.

Please keep me posted on your progress Liza and all the best with your upcoming new baby!

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Response To: Hydrocortisone And Itching On Back And Chest
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Mr. Mangan,

Short and especially long term use of hydrocortisone cream 1% can certainly cause itching on the back and chest. You see, steroid creams of any percentage are harsh and toxic to the body and side effects are inevitable! These side effects include: thinning and discoloration of the skin, easy bruising, permanent dilation of certain blood vessels, burn marks on skin, itchiness, perioral dermatitis, liver and kidney damage and a weakened immune system. Recent studies further reveal changes in the shape or location of body fat (especially in your face, neck, back, and waist), increased acne or facial hair, menstrual problems and impotence. Not only this, but steroid use almost always produces a "rebound effect" of the very symptoms you are trying to get rid of!

The best way to treat skin and scalp conditions is with natural remedies that help to rebuild the health of your skin. Just as the body responds to wholesome foods, the skin also responds readily to natural ingredients. I would highly recommend reading the information we have on this website regarding our FACE & BODY WASH and the various hypo-allergenic creams we have available. Our products are well known for their fast working and rapid repairing of the skin and scalp.

Please feel free to contact me with any other questions you may have Mr. Mangan.

Nanette

Scalp Acne

by Cherie Lane

I have no flaking, just a lot of itching, especially when I lay down at night, around the back of the head and behind my ears and pressure points, since I wear glasses to read. Also during the day when I wear sunglasses, it itches more behind the ear than other places. I do get bumps like I got when I was younger, not pimples, but like blind pimples - I call stress bumps. They only hurt but never turn into pimples. The bumps come and go but the itching is forever. I'm 66 and have had my hormones checked and am supplementing accordingly. I take vitamins including biotin and have a protein shake everyday. I've read info that leads me to believe I could have "scalp acne" so my dermatologist recommended an antibiotic Doxycycl for a bacterial infection and Neutragena T-Sal shampoo. Ever heard of anything like this? Any suggestions?

by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Cherie,

We have a number of customers who have similar symptoms as you have described. This scalp condition results in transient stress bumps that hurt terribly and the scalp is almost continually and uncontrollably itchy. You should know that Doxycycline is a drug that is a member of the tetracycline antibiotics group and is commonly used to treat a variety of infections. Common Doxycycline side effects include diarrhea, skin reaction to sunlight, unexplained rash, watery diarrhea or fever, liver damage, allergic reaction, or vision changes. You also mentioned Neutragena T-Sal shampoo which contains salicylic acid which is a keratolytic (peeling agent). Salicylic acid causes shedding of the outer layer of skin and can cause serious irritation as well as shortness of breath, closing of the throat, swelling of the lips, face, or tongue or hives in some people.

I strongly recommend the following for your particular condition: At night before bedtime, rub in our specially formulated therapeutic DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM into the parts of the scalp affected to relieve itching and inflammation. This double strength formula is all natural and penetrates the thicker skin of the scalp deeper and faster. Allow the cream to absorb overnight into the 7 layers of scalp tissue.

Next, wash their hair and scalp with our HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT which is hypo-allergenic and filled with nutrients. These 2 products, together, will unpack dry skin cells in the deepest part of the scalp and restore much needed moisture and regain a healthy balance once again. They will also stop any itching and provide anti bacteria, anti microbial and anti fungal protection while working.

Once your scalp condition is repaired you need only use the HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT to keep your scalp healthy and problem free.

Please keep me posted on their progress Cherie.

Your Double Strength TheraCream And Face & Neck TheraCream Work!

by David
(Nashville, TN )

I have used various hydrocortisone creams for years for scaly places on my face. I was trying to order a new kind of hydrocortisone and saw your article about your Face and Neck TheraCream as a safer alternative. I tried it and it really works. I am surprised and very pleased. My wife also has for years used very strong and very expensive hydrocortisone on itchy places on her back. She tried the Double Strength TheraCream and it works too. Thank you.

Response To Itchy Skin
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hello There,

Actually, itchy skin syndrome can occur at any time in our lives, even if we've never experienced it before. Both winter and summer time can bring on a lot of challenges to our skin and certainly bed sheet fabric, laundry soap, dryer sheets and even dust mites (which are very tiny, spider-like creatures that make their homes in mattresses, pillows), can cause or worsen this condition.

Some other factors that can cause your skin to itch uncontrollably are:

1) Long, hot baths can actually dry out your skin.
2) Scratchy clothes (like wool) can also irritate the skin.
3) Low humidity - during cold weather, the heated air inside homes and other buildings can make skin dry and itchy.
4) Certain foods or beverages can cause an allergic reaction in your body.
5) Emotional stress or feeling upset can cause the face and body to get itchy, red and hot.
6) Commercial soaps contain drying chemicals that really enhance dry skin syndrome.
7) Failure to moisturize your skin, (this applies to men, women and children of all ages!) can leave your skin desert dry and horribly itchy.

Here are my recommendations, follow them and your itchy skin will respond:

1) Shorten bath time and use lukewarm water so as not to dry your skin.
2) Try to wear only cotton or silk clothing - these are gentle on the skin.
3) Keep a humidifier in your bedroom at night for added moisture.
4) Watch for what heavier "winter" foods may be aggravating your itchy skin.
5) Keep stress to a minimum and learn how to "unwind".
6) Use only a hypo-allergenic, chemical free cleanser such as our FACE & BODY WASH that will quickly add much needed moisture to your skin.
7) Moisturize your skin daily with our HAND & BODY THERACREAM which will penetrate the skin 7 layers deep and add abundant moisture as well as stop any itching. This fast working cream contains plenty of vitamins and nutrients to fortify and protect your skin. As a special note, since your symptoms are located in your extremities, you will want to massage UPWARDS towards your heart to stimulate circulation while applying your cream.

Itchy Dry Face

by Sharon
(Moore, SC)

Hi,

Both my daughter and I have very dry, itchy skin on our face and it's especially bad in the winter. Will your Face & Neck cream work for both of us since we have extremely sensitive skin. Also, is your natural shampoo appropriate to use for color treated hair? Thank you! Sharon

Hello Sharon,

Good day and thank you for contacting me with your question. I would certainly recommend our FACE & NECK THERACREAM which is a natural facial cream that is hypoallergenic and fragrance free. It is suitable for all skin types and is gentle enough for the most sensitive skin conditions. We have many customers that use our face cream around their eyes (avoiding inner eye areas of course) to relieve dryness and itchiness. It's that safe and that effective.

You may want to couple the use of this product with our FACE & BODY MOISTURIZING WASH that provides a gentle but thorough cleansing but does not strip the skin of it's natural PH.

Regarding the color safety of your hair, our HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT is pure and gentle and provides highly therapeutic benefits restoring the natural PH of the hair and scalp and will not strip the color from your hair.

I look forward to hearing about yours and your daughter's progress.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Itchy Blotchy Skin During The Winter Months

by J.V.
(Spartanburg, SC )

Hi Nanette,

My husband had really itchy blotchy skin that would appear during the winter months. It was only on his lower half all over his legs and on his bottom. He would scratch the red blotchy rash until he bled. I had a skin problem too! Nothing I used would stop the horrible itching I would experience all over my body during the dry winter months. I would get red and blotchy and at times even bleed from the scratching I would constantly do. When I spoke to you I didn't think your recommendation would work (partly because it seemed so uncomplicated) but I tried it anyway. Well, let me tell you that the itching stopped immediately for both my husband and I and the red, dry, blotchy skin was gone in a total of 3 days. I will never doubt natural remedies again and I will eternally be grateful for your advice.

by Shelly

My son looks likes he has a bunch of scabs all over his scalp and he itches them and won't let me wash it. He screams when I even put water on his head.

Response to Itchy Scabs On Head
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hi Shelly,

I'm so glad you've contacted me so that I can help you solve your son's scalp problem. His scalp is no doubt sore and quite sensitive at this point from all the scratching he is doing. Since he is not even wanting you to put water on his head, I will recommend the following plan to help repair his scalp.

You will need to wash his hair with our HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT as soon as you can. It will stop the itching and begin unpacking the scabs that have their root 7 layers deep. This anti-itch property is important so that he will no longer feel the urge to scratch and irritate his condition. After a few washings, you will soon notice that his scabs will begin to heal. At this point I recommend that you apply our DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM (very lightly and gently) all over his scalp area the night before you wash his hair. This double formula cream will further penetrate the scalp to unpack the deep down dry cells that have been surfacing as scabs and such. Then in the morning, wash with the shampoo I recommended.

Please use nothing else so that the repair process is not hindered.

Please feel free to contact me with any other questions you may have and do let me know of your son's progress.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Groin Rash

by Karen
(MN)

Hi,

I am a 32 year old woman who was having a reoccurring rash in my groin area that lasted for almost 7 months now. I have seen three different doctors about it, and they all said it was inverse psoriasis, and had prescribed steroid creams. However, when I stopped using them, the rash came back. I was so ready to get rid of this rash, it was so uncomfortable and stressed me out so much. I found your site and used your Face & Body Wash along with your My Daughter's Hand & Body TheraCream and it worked so quickly to relieve my groin rash....I was thrilled!! Thanks so much!!!

Response To Mastocytosis Itching
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Donna,

Let me just say for our website viewers that mastocytosis is a rare disorder characterized by abnormal accumulations of mast cells in skin, bone marrow, and internal organs such as the liver, spleen and lymph nodes. Cases beginning during adulthood tend to involve the inner organs in addition to the skin whereas, during childhood, the condition is often marked by skin manifestations with minimal or no organ involvement. When there is evidence of bone marrow or internal organ involvement, the disease is referred to as "systemic mastocytosis".

Many of my clients that are presently under a physician's care for mastocytosis seek the soothing and healing effect on their skin in using our products. Since you itch all over I would highly recommend our FACE & BODY WASH as well as our HAND & BODY THERACREAM. Both can be used all over the body, one as a gentle and soothing cleanser and the other as a reparative and restorative cream that will greatly reduce the itching you are experiencing. These two products are filled with the best natural ingredients formulated to replenish skin cells and to provide the nutritive support the skin layers need.

Please keep me posted on your progress Donna and all the best to you.

Warm Regards,
Nanette
