I would try Gold Bond products. They have a regular and extra-strength lotion, and it also comes in powder form. Itching can literally drive you crazy. The Gold Bond works really well for me. Give it a try.I have such an intense itch on my back.no anti-itch creams or lotions work. can anyone help?
Your doctor is correct. Because you probably had a 1st degree burn. This deep of a burn would burn the nerve endings. You might try some Benadryl to possible help with the itching.
