    Re: Shingles

    Hey Chez

    My mates told me about 2 products that helps with the dreaded "itch" that might help your kidlet after she feels better. The products are made for adults and also for youngins

    My psoriasis is acting up lately and the dreaded "winter itch" has shown its ugly face.....my hands and elbows are so itchy, and I have terrible and painful rashes already. I put some these products on my face for moisturizing and on my hands and elbows last night. Well the itch has been gone since last night until today at 6 pm.....I'm delighted with these one day results.

    The company is named Beiersdorf (They also make Nivia products) and the products are called Aquaphor healing lotion and Eucerin...lotion for skin and moisturizing the facial area.

    If you're interested in these products and you can't find them in your neck of the woods I will mail them onto you.....just let me know.

    Awww thanks Kathy.
    However my eldest is an excema sufferer and I have that many emolients and moisture creams here I could open my own shop, she has already been using the dermasoap in the shower to stop the itch. Its not got the dreaded awful itchy stage yet however, we still have some blisters.

    Thanks Kathy

    Hi Chez...should have clarified....

    These products are used for any rash...great for psoriasis/excema...et all..

    All the moms in my school plus myself have tons of products that don't work.

    All of these moms use this particular product and have seen tremendous results on their babies...no matter what age. It's just another thought to ponder.

    It's working for my friend's baby and for ME...Yeehaa

    Chezzie:

    I've never heard of children getting Shingles. I thought it was an 'older person's disease'.

    Did your doctor suggest she get the Shingles shot to prevent this from happening again?

    No, didnt even mention their was a Shingles Injection? I will look into it.

    I was alarmed at first but I have spoken to lots of people now who's children got shingles and some say their child was as young as 6 years.

    Re: Shingles

    EURAX cream is good for reducing the 'itch' and of course keeping the area moiturised with non-scented cream of some sort. Drying of the skin with any skin complaint seems to make the problem worse.

    Big hugs to the 'patient'............and Mum

    I just found this Kindle.


    Prevention of shingles

    A vaccine is available for chickenpox, but it isn't routinely used in the UK. However, it is offered to health workers who aren't immune to chickenpox.

    A vaccine that reduces the risk of shingles for people over the age of 60 has also been developed and is used in USA, but it hasn't yet been approved in the UK.

    In northeastern Ohio, if you wish to obtain a Shingles shot, you are currently on a list at your doctor's office. The waiting time for me is currently about a year.

    This is the first time I've experience a wait like this.
