    Default Thanks and a question

    Hello Everyone!

    Thanks again for the warm welcome. It is so nice to know when I need support, I can just jump on the computer. It really put a smile on my face when I saw the replies.

    I do have a question. Over the past few days, I have had an itchy neck. But I just thought it was because I live in the frozen tundra (Minnesota) and I was dry and not putting enough lotion on. This morning and it looks like a sunburn (something I thought I would never say again in my life). It is hot to the touch and itchy. Any thoughts......

    Hope everyone is doing well.

    Thanks again!

    Love, Deb

    Tootles...welcoming you with a big hug.

    Itch..I know the word well...neck, head to toe. I've had it...

    Could be a myriad of things.

    New lotion? New shampoo? New laundry soap? Shirt rubbing? Contact dermatitis? Cuddling any animals? Sweat irritation? Necklace?

    Stress, nerves? Night sweats?

    New drugs?

    Rash? Raised? Blisters?

    Try cold compresses to ease the itch and see if that helps.
    Try using a mild soap like Cetaphil to cleanse. Pat dry.
    Try OTC anti-histamine at night. Zyrtec, Claritin...
    Keep your bedroom cool.
    Keep hair off you neck.
    Keep nails clipped.
    Refrain from itching.

    Hope this helps...hugs.
    Night,
    Oluwa

    Hey sorry to hear bout ur rash...
    I have had that a while back when I had my clothes washed by her mother... she used a different washing powder and my whole back was red and ichy for days.....

    I took a lot of cold-ish showers and just tried to keep off it and it went away..... just got small patches now sometimes but gotten used to it.... :P
    so just ignoring them......

    good luck with it...

    oh and no scratching.....

    Default thanks!

    Hello!

    Thank you for the information and suggestions on the rash. I just kept on putting ice packs or cold wash clothes on it and by this evening it is almost gone.

    Yesterday, I was having a good day and my 7 year old son calls the basement his "Workout Gym" and he is the manager. He started this a few months ago and said maybe doing these exercises will help the lupus go away. I went down last night and we did exercises which was so much fun, but today I can hardly move my upper body. But it was sure fun to be with my son and then he feels like he is helping so much.

    I am so grateful for this site! I hope everyone is having a good as well. Thanks again for everything.

    Stay Positive ~ Love,

    Deb
