I am a RN and feel totally helpless when I have to watch the suffering and digging to relieve the insane itch that results from this disease. I have tried almost everything for my significant other and nothing seems to work.

when it start to itch,u hv to learn that it is on ur mind,and u hv to learn to cope wif them.make a new habit of not scratching and try to relax,it takes time,but if u hv too suffer the rest of ur life,take time to learn and change.keep ur nail clean and trimmed short. do not scratch it as you will spread the bacteria and wat ever fluid that may make it worse. consume vitamin c,it will allow ur skin to reproduce better and boost your immune.
