Dear Chong:

Most itchiness of the skin is often from antibiotics, which is produced from a fungus. Sometimes the fungus produces mycotoxins present in antibiotics that caused the itch, and certain other fungus and molds, such as black molds found in the house produces that too, plus aflatoxins, which produces skin problem and damages the immune system. Traditional Chinese medicine recognized the importance of stomach, spleen, kidney and liver, but it has yet to realized the importance of the thymus which is the immune system, and since it's a 3000 year old medicine, bacteria, fungus and virus has not been formally recognized or updated, while the present medical system relies too much on fungus producing antibiotics, causing the skin problem. However a chemotherapy can weaken the immune system and the fungus may invade the body causing the itching. A brain where traces of mycotoxins may enter may produce a nonexistent itch, which sometimes happen with taken of antibiotics also and caused readening of eyes if taken longer than three days.

In any event, I recently found a certain cold sore virus that caused extreme itching for months. This peculiar virus, funny enough was stopped with a peppermint oil mixed in ethanol used for other purposes and was applied to the skin and stopped the itching. However, peppermint oil has cortisone like properties as well as antiviral such as certain kinds of cold sores. Peppermint oil may relieve chronic fatigue and adrenal exhaustion too as it has some adrenal like properties, as do holy basil.

Another one that stopped itching using external applications is the common laxative, used for external purpose to apply the area of itchy skin to relieved it immediately The calamine lotion generally don't work that well, but in a very few cases it does work too, perhaps it was overuse, and sometimes they add zinc oxide to help. Another skin application that helped if soaked or applied long enough up to 10 minutes or more is the plain distilled vinegar, which kills the fungus that produces the irritant.

A much simpler sea salt remedy such as one tablespoon of sea salt plus two tablespoon of water,and apply to the area may work, but is fairly mild and require longer soaking such as 2-3 hours may work in some case also. My favorite one so far has been the milk of magnesia owing to its high pH which kills most bacteria and fungus, while most milk of magnesia contains (I don't like aluminum hydroxide added) peppermint oil, which is antiviral, and it therefore becomes broad spectrum that generally works better than (in practice) potassium permanganate 1:5000 solution or even Gentian violet.

In a few cases a 2% - 3% H2O2 is applied thinly will also kill most surface bacterium and fungus as well, but it needs multiple application. Unless the itch or source irritation doesnt occur deeper than this the external application is fine. But if it is deeper, then 10 drops of 3% H2O2 in a glas of water taken for 2-3 times every 2 hours may help, plus baking soda 1/2 teaspoon with 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda. Immunity may be restored after a cancer with 2-3 drops of lugol solution taken internally once a day may also help.

The H2O2 drops will oxidized whatever fungus, aflatoxins in the blood and remove left over chemical toxins from chemotherapy also, if they were taken regularly and this maybe noted that the skin conditions clear up. If liver is cleared up, the dark circles under the eyes also disappears as well. If toxins accumulate long enough,you get age spots, but a few may clear with the H2O2 also. The itch may be reduce more deeply that way. In combination with alkalinity of baking soda 1/2 teaspoon a day in baking soda, the blood being more alkalne will reduce the yeast and fungus and reduced it that way too.

A 10% sea salt concentration is applied to the skin as the concentration if added to bath tub is too weak, and it is way below 1%. It will never work if one tablespoon is added to a bathtub at all. Can be applied directly and mixed in a glass of water or bottle of water. Although a hydrogen peroxide, milk of magesia or vinegar will work better.

A solution of milk of magnesia maybe applied to the skin several times a day as is necessary is the simplest to get. Some sea salt to the milk may be added helps for external application. I have seen a few cases where this is relieved with a peppermint dissolved in alcohol solution that is sold in drug store to relieve stomach problems. A standard milk of magnesia contains 8% magnesium hydroxide, with a small amount of peppermint oil. Any brand is fine, but no aluminum compounds should be added.

Most of the itchiness comes from fungus or fungus like bacteria. There are many solutions to help, but most of the problem is getting the supplies. Simple solutions include applying White Distilled Vinegar to the skin (typical supermarket vinegar) a couple of times with a cotton balls. Seems to help also.

In the long run it helps that the body is alkalized enough (from baking soda remedy as in 1/2 teaspoon in 1/2 glass of water taken 3 times a day being the simplest) to defend the fungus causing the itchiness. A hydrogen peroxide solution as in 1% - 2% may also be applied to the skin also. A 3% may be too irritating to the skin. In my area 3% won't cause irritation due to extremely humid and hot climate here.

The most effective of all external appplication for itchiness I have found is a 2% copper chloride solution applied to the skin, for a minute or two then rinse with water.
