I take a pain killer everyday, oxycodone, which has a nasty side effect of making you itch. It feels like you want to scratch your entire skin off. It's horrible. So I had to do something about it. Of course Benedryl was recommended but it made me sleepy and nauseous. Then I found the Aveeno Natural Colloidal Bath product. Not only is it an enjoyable way to relive your itch (who doesn't love a good soak in the tub) but my itching stopped just like that, and my skin felt softer and smoother than before. Ok, true, you do have to wipe your tub down after using the product because of the residue, but that's nothing in consideration of having such wonderful relief from medicinal itching. When I was a child with chicken pox I remember my great grandmother putting me in a bath with just plain oatmeal, it made me wonder if I was being cooked for breakfast. The Colloidal oatmeal is much smoother and comfortable than the old days of oatmeal bath treatments. Throw your Benedryl away and reach out for some Aveeno Colloidal Oatmeal Bath. I highly recommend this product for medicinal side effects of itching. Enjoy!
