I try not to complain much, however when the rash appeared, and continued to spread and get worse and worse, it was all I could do to not whine and writh in pain and intolerable itchyness. After a pointless visit to the doctor, using up four tubes of anti-itch cream, lots of Benedryl that didn't do a darn thing, and getting sick of sleeping with two ice packs every night, I decided to get online and see what else I could come up with.
After reading numerous blogs, forum discussions, and articles that have absolutely NO medical backing, I decided to try what a lot of women were saying worked for them:
Flax Seed Oil
I am not typically one to like to take much of anything, whether herbal or not, however in my desperation I was willing to try anything. From what I read, people said that when they took Dandelion Root and Flax Seed Oil together they noticed that the rash and it symptoms started to get better after five days or so. They both are safe and only provide good things for your body (mainly related to liver function) so I started taking them three times a day, every day. After day six I noticed that my rash was no longer spreading, and the itch had reduced tremendously! I have been taking this combo for 12 days now and my rash is completely gone and the itch is so minimal I wouldn't consider it a bother at all.
I am officially a believer in this NON medically recommended remedy! It has worked for me...this far at least! I am not ready to stop taking it as I am not ready for the rash to come back...but I am a believer! I will not go into the details of why people think this combo works on the rash (you can look it up...has to do with the liver). I am convinced that it has worked for me! Who would have thought that a pesky weed's roots and a ton of Omega 3's would bring sanity back to my life!? I am a believer!
