Today we’ve been at home and at my mum’s for a change of scene. Henry is still feeling ok, but is a bit more itchy. We’ve tried the traditional calamine lotion which helps a bit. Last night I cooked peas for dinner and kept the water they were cooked in back. Today I tried applying that instead of calamine lotion and it seemed as effective. I think there must be better products out there.
Has anyone tried something particularly effective? I’m thinking about an oatmeal or baking soda bath tonight. Tomorrow I might try Piriton and see if I can buy a cream from the chemists.
