Home Remedies for Skin Rashes

Having been plagued with allergic skin rashes for over a year now, I can safely say that I have tried just about every home remedy known to man, including the ones listed in the linked article below.

All of them work in varying degrees. Since my skin rashes are due to allergies, I have not found anything that gets rid of it totally, although it does start to heal, and then it comes back.

I have created my own treatments using essential oils which help with the itching. My potions also help repel mosquitoes. You can read about them here. 

The MUSC (Medical Univ. of S.C.) dermatologist wants to do the allergen skin test, but that is an expensive test, as many of you know. Meanwhile, I continue to look for new home remedies.

Obviously, one needs to be careful of soaps, detergents, and household cleaners. Any chemical you come into contact with can create a reaction. Outdoor allergens are also to blame.

Many may find it strange, but the zinc in diaper rash cream helps immensely, especially if you have a raw area. When I was in the hospital, they used a zinc paste dressing on my worst areas. However, diaper rash creams will suffice in most cases. Compare the creams and choose one with the highest amount of zinc.

Diaper rash cream: you might laugh away at this absurd suggestion but if it can treat a rash on a baby's sensitive skin, it can take care of yours. Extremely mild and extremely helpful. Apply 2-3 times a day.

Spitzer uses friend's name to register motel rooms

Poor Mr. Fox, Mr. George Fox that is, who is now known for renting motel rooms with hookers, and formerly Gov. Spitzer's friend.

I say formerly because it appears that the good governor was using his name (George Fox) to reserve motel rooms where he was meeting with his very expensive prostitute.

And another "great" politician bites the dust...

Mr. Spitzer was elected in a landslide in 2006, capitalizing on his popularity he won as the “Sheriff of Wall Street” during eight years as attorney general. With a reputation for personal probity and independence, he pledged to bring higher ethical standards to the statehouse.

The more good you do, the more evil tries to embrace you.

Beware, even democrats can fall prey.

Sad that his legacy will just be one of another hypocrite because his true character was one of just rising to the top of his game and not the integrity he falsely showed to the public.

Homemade Mosquito Repellent

The Zika virus carried by mosquitoes has become a hot topic and is the basis for many unwarranted fears for most people in the United States. While it is a dangerous virus that can be sexually transmitted (one reported in S.C.), here in the US, it only affects about 1000 people per year.

As of August 18, 2016, there are 34 known cases of Zika virus in South Carolina.

You can also learn more about the Zika virus from the Centers for Disease Control atCDC.gov/zika/.

Each state should also provide information. The link for South Carolina is SCDHEC.gov/, which provides useful information on symptoms, transmission and prevention.

How the Rich and Famous are Voting

This election year has been one of the most interesting, and most controversial election years of my life. The politicians and their supporters are confused, angry, and sometimes downright ignorant. The lies and accusations are tossed around easier than a salad.

This political circus has served to inspire many questions for me, not all of which serve a great purpose - such as this one.

Then again, it wasn't that long ago that a movie star was elected president.




How are the rich and famous voting? I found endless resources for celebrity supporters of Hillary, but those supporting Trump are apparently not as vocal about their choice.
