10 Year Itch
I seem to have a 10 Year Itch. I've had two biopsies and nothing. I feel like something is crawling under my skin. Nothing helps and it is getting worse.
I scratch in my sleep until it bleeds. I have tried garlic, lemon balm, tea tree oil. Been to the doctors (aka quacks) and they can't find a thing wrong. Help!!!!!!!!!!!
I read that someone took a bath in ammonia and something else and things started to crawl out of the skin. I need to know the ratio of what. I will try anything at this point.
I'm not sure about a "10 Year Itch" but you definitely have something that is giving you grief.
I would definitely NOT recommend using ammonia. Ammonia is pretty toxic both breathing it in and going through your pores.
There are other options that you can try that are much safer and more likely to give you the desired results.
First of all, there are a couple of things to consider. It would be nice to determine the "cause" of your itching problem because it would be easier to know how to deal with it.
One cause of this type of itching in women that isn't mentioned often is hormone imbalance. In the US and other western countries, women have a tendency toward an imbalance of estrogen and progesterone - the progesterone is far too low.
It is also more and more common for women to undergo a hysterectomy which adds to the problem of hormone imbalance. I don't know your age or if it's possible that hormonal imbalance plays any part in your 'skin condition' but I wanted to mention it so that you could consider it for yourself.
If you are one of the many women who has gone through a hysterectomy or even if you are just approaching middle age and think
you may be low in your progesterone levels, there is a natural progesterone cream solution that is safe and effective and offers a range of health benefits.
I use Renewed Balance
natural progesterone cream myself to help maintain healthy hormone levels and improve my bone density, too.If your '10 year itch' is from parasites
that's another matter entirely. There are also natural ways to help your body eliminate the parasites and boost your immune system.
- You need to fight the parasites from the inside out. Try using Para 90 and Herbal Fiberblend to kill off internal parasites and flush them out of your body. They contain anti-parasitic and anti-fungal herbs that work together to cleanse the body from the inside.
- Secondly, you need some good quality probiotics like Florafood to boost the good bacteria levels in your system and fight off nasty invaders.
- Finally, consider strengthening your immune system by enjoying foods rich in nutrition - whole foods. Cutting back on sugars, starches, and processed foods will go a long way toward getting rid of parasites.
If you're like me, though, you probably need a bit of help. I use whole food supplement powders made from freshly juiced vegetables to make it easier for me to get the nutrition my body needs to stay healthy and ward off attacks from the multitudes of parasites we encounter each day in our daily lives.
The Garden Trio is a good place to start.
As for something you can use as a bath soak, try adding some Indian Neem oil to your bath or just some organic apple cider vinegar.
The apple cider vinegar can help to soothe and heal your damaged skin, and the Indian Neem is anti-parasitic and can help to deter the parasites from the outside.
Hope this helps you get some relief soon.To your good health!
