T-gel (unpleasant smell), by Neutrogena.

Hoping this works for you!

Strength, Courage and HOPE for a Cure.

I was using Baby shampoo and when I added conditioner, the itching stopped. My MO suggested that. Not really intuitive, conditioning non-existent hair :-)

I used calamine lotion. Can still remember the stinky smell. I also put vitamin E oil on my head. When you are feeling desperate for some relief a benadryl might help.

I also used the Neutrogena T-Gel. It has a touch of menthol in and was very soothing. These are all excellent ideas, hope u find one that works.

Hi all,
Thanks for the great suggestions.....I pick up a bootle of Aveeno lotion and it seems to be doing the trick for now
Thanks again!
