- one of the biggest topics in our community, no doubt there. There are things I do to prevent the itch from coming, but I have to say once the itch gets through all my defense mechs, I just have to just let it do its thing!
Ice is my 'go to' too , and it allows me to hold off meds til noon.
I find ice pack to be very helpful on the worst areas (for me,it's the lower back). I can then hold off on taking medication as long as possible.

ice is a life saver for me! I had to purchase an ice mask for my face, as my face tends to get the brunt of it, and it helps so much. I'm not a huge fan of taking anti histamines, so I always go for ice first lol! -Nina (AtopicDermatitis.net Team Member)
