05%. Prior to that, I used everything under <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> sun and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> but until I used this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cream</span>, nothing worked. the cream is a miracle, the rash caused by the poison ivy was under control in a day of use and the speed by which this ointment worked is nothing like I've encountered. A true miracle in a tube.
Your doctor can help determine whether you need an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> (OTC) antihistamine or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> prescription variety. Although <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> older OTC drugs, known as "first-generation" or sedating antihistamines, may cause side effects like drowsiness or anxiety, newer antihistamines are much less likely to when taken at the recommended dosage.
In addition, I would try to get an oral prescription antihistamine. Some people use <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> Benadryl and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> steroid <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cream</span> but they did nothing for me and my rash, just were not strong enough. over the counter steroids creams and over the counter antihistamines were useless for me, totally useless. they did nothing. My treatment team was useless and dragged their feet doing nothing until the rash was really pretty bad and I demanded they do something.
Since I have to treat 48 weeks I have been counting down <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> days until <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> Incivek is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> and hoping that things will get a little easier once this part is over. Thanks!
I also used lidocaine creame with hydrocortizone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cream</span> (prescription) and it numbs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> outside. At times I used Prep. H cream but that was too irritating when the reactal/anal area was irritated. I did use Prep. H suppossitories at night. That helped (soothed). Later on I used Desitin cream. I had an entire counter of items that I used at various times depending on what the worst issue was. Other suggestions are to drink a lot of water. Several quarts a day.
My Sphincter muscle had spasmed to the point that as the day went on, I was in pain worse than labor. they tried lidocaine at <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> ER and prescribed vicodin and hydrocortizone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cream</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> lidocaine did nothing to help. Vicodin helped for about an hour. the hydrocortizone cream is what actually worked for the pain. the hemorrhoids didn't go away neither did the fissure, but the pain from the spasm finally went away.
It's bound to be tough, but you can do it. And your doctor can help. Try an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> or prescription <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cream</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span>-counter hydrocortisone creams or prescription steroid creams can help ease itching and inflammation. Soaps or lotions containing coal tar may be helpful, too. Try other types of medication. Sometimes antihistamines help stop itching. In other cases, steroids may be injected directly into the affected area to reduce itching.
they used Buffered Lidocaine injection which I did not feel any of.. I must admit, I did put <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> Lidocaine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cream</span> all <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> my breast about an hour before the procedure. I used this Lidocaine cream on my arm before a tetanus shot that I had to get and was so afraid of and I was screaming for the nurse to WAIT but.. IT WAS ALREADY DONE! Helps a lot so you don't feel pain. Nurse also gave me tips for next time I get an injection.
For the discomfort associated with cold sores you could try <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> (OTC) ointments, such as topical lidocaine or benzyl alcohol (Zilactin), which can help ease discomfort. REF: http://secret_scars.homestead.com/scars.html You can get more information on this website.
I had a rash everywhere too, including the perineal area but, as stated, it all went awy with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> prescription Hydroxyzine. (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> Benadryl was useless.
At the time it felt like it was the muscle or tendons, kind of like they had been strained or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> used. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> pain continued to increase with night time being <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> worst. Since then <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> pain is in my shoulder, collar bone, mid arm (between the shoulder and elbow), elbow and wrist. My elbow is now very sore after typing or writing if it's not well supported on a desk. Although it doesn't hurt to the touch.
Topical zinc oxide cream like Sudocrem, Desitin are very helpful(apply with a paper towel and not directly with hands).Application of mild steroid <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cream</span> like dermacort also helps. For <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> itching please take some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> antihistaminic like Benadryl or Claritin. In case the symptoms persist then antifungals may be needed. A dermatologist should be consulted in that case. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Sorry to hear about your symptoms. Unfortunately, Vincristine is well known to cause pretty severe PNs. Don't know what you;ve tried but I can give you a list of things that we used here. First, capsaicin cream (over the counter) burns when you initially apply it, but is supposed to "burn out" the pain fibers giving you some relief. Lidocaine patches and combo ketoprofen/ketamine patches have also been helpful to some patients.
Maybe some lidocaine cream would help but I would get a prescription and not just an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> prescription lidocaine is stronger and also has the hydrocortizone cream in it). Perhaps yours will let up a little like mine did for 2.5 weeks. One thing I have noticed about all three of these drugs is that the side effects seem to pop up whenever they feel like it and then sometimes disappear for a few days or a day and then pop up again.
But that it technically would destroy the peripheral nerves on the surface, thus dulling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> pain sensations. I didn't try it so I cannot speak for it's success. Nothing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> in a similar family worked at all, like Icy Hot, just so you know, although some people on this site have reported some relief with extra strength Oragel on their gums and teeth. Again, I just got some numbness but not relief. Everyone is different. To me, everything is worth a try.
I will also let you know how well it works. there is an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> heat patch that lasts for 8 hours. It does keep <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> area warm and adds some comfort. I wear it, especially on cool days or nights when I am having a lot of pain in my SI Joint. Others should post and offer their suggestions and information. Feel free to send me a PM on my profile page if you would like to contact me. I hope other will have more information than I have for you.
When I had the wire procedure this week, first they put in the IV needle which I barely felt because I had plastered numbing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cream</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> my veins to help with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> IV pain. I also plastered so much numbing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cream</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> my breast that during the actual wire procedure, I barely felt any discomfort from the clamps, did not feel the needle from the numbing injection until it reached the deepest point, and then only for a second or two.
I am the Audrey who had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> horrible mouth sores. I have a small pharmacy, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> and scripts. This is a not too unusual reaction to the riba. I waited a long time to get a script - too long. By then they refused to heal. there are two pills that are just for this - one is called "famvir" and the other I do not know the name of, but it has the same properties.Some people will heal fronm these meds and some will need to be on a maintanence dose throughout tx.
Doctors are of no help and sleep is imposssible. Applying SELSUN (an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> pharmacutical) use for fungal infections seems to work if used daily for a week. the smell may put your spouse off!!! Good luck. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/241701'>Severe Itching on arms</a>.
Lidoderm, unlike Flector patches and Voltaren gel, is not a topical anti-inflammatory but rather a numbing medicine applied to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> skin. 4) An <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> counter option, though not as well studied, is Aspercreme cream, which is a topical salicylate (aspirin) pain reliever. It works by reducing swelling and inflammation in the muscle and joints. Take care!
My husband had terrible itching until he began taking Hydroxyzine Pam two times daily at 25 mg. It took many years of trying <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> medications, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cream</span> and prescriptons to find relief. He used to wake me up in the night from his incontrollable itching. Good Luck.
Application of mild steroid cream like dermacort also helps. For <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> itching take some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> antihistaminic like benadryl or Claritin In case the symptoms persist then antifungals may be needed. Please consult a dermatologist in that case. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Try different devices that keep your hands and wrists in an neutral position, like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> wrist braces (soft or hard). You can also discuss it with your doctor and have a prosthetic specialist custom mold something for you that will help. Injections of cortisone into the joint could help. This is usually a temporary measure, but if you're careful the effects could last a long time.
(prescription) the ointment did stop the itching and eventually (a 2-3 of weeks) cleared <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> rash but <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> rash just moved <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> to a new spot. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> hydroxyzine is what did <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> trick. It is wonderful and I do not itch anymore as long as I take at least 7 a day. Plus it is clearing up the rash and all of the red spots. Absolutely no over the counter meds helped me. they were not strong enough. Keep the rooms cools, especially the bedroom. Ceiling or box fans help.
On this particular visit I did not have any cuts. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> infection returned 1 week ago and I used an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> herbal yeast infection ****** & Gel cream that had live cultures. Within 2 days I was worse, the cuts returned but this time they were larger. So I figured, I needed a stronger med. I purchased and over the counter 3 day Suppository. This made me more uncomfortable and now the cuts were irritated even more.
Sarah What you're experience sounds very much like a normal body's reaction to a new HSV infection and I think that, until he gets tested and proves otherwise, you should assume that he has HSV and passed it along to you. Most people who have the virus are not aware that they have it. Most people who transmit the virus do so when they have no symptoms whatsoever. This is why HSV2 is such a difficult disease to track... way too many people have it and don't know.
cream Xylocaine/hydrocortisone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cream</span> for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> anal burning and itching Restasis eye drops <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> stuff can add up too (but not so much as prescription: Huggies baby wipes with aloe Preparation H supp. Preparation H cream Tylenol Benadryl caps. Loperimide tabs. Hydrocortisone cream Zyrtec That's my list.
My GI doctor advised me to use Aquaphor ointment (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span>) for itchy skin. It is a really thick icky stuff that you put on after showering, and then cover up (so you don't get grease on your furniture). It sounds awful, but it really really makes my skin feel better for a while. Once a week that really helps, but be prepared, it is kind of icky, like vaseline...
