yes and ask your doc for a single dose of 250mg of intramuscular ceftriaxone AND 1g of oral azithromycin.

Slap the itch.

Just spray very hot water on it for a couple minutes. The itch will be gone for hours.

Yes. I use a blow-dryer and best result yet. Not perfect but pretty good. The hot air is a substitute for scratching/rubbing the itch and ... bliss!

2020-09-07 | You should RUB an itch instead of scratching it to ease the irritation | Daily Mail Online

'Rubbing an itch instead of scratching it can ease the irritation more quickly as it activates a soothing pathway from the spinal cord, researchers claim. '

'However, inhibiting both sensory neurons and a sub-type of anti-itch interneurons in the spinal cord failed to decrease the response from dorsal horn neurons. ', "People should stop scratching and start rubbing skin in order to activate an anti-itch 'pathway' in the spinal cord that calms the irritating sensation, the team said."

'Stroking, or rubbing an itch starts a cascade of events inside the body including firing off neurons in the spinal cord that ease the irritation and sooth the skin. ', "Scientists from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine investigated the neural pathways behind forms of 'itch relief' including rubbing and scratching."
