Hi Claire –

The ONLY thing I’ve found that immediately relieves the itch is peppermint oil.

I put a tiny bit of water in my hand to dilute 3-5 drops of peppermint oil, then splash on skin. It BURNS for a few minutes (feels like fighting fire with fire) but then it “cools”” the skin. You can also take a bath (cool water) with 10 drops of peppermint oil.
