I need help and advice

Ever since I was advised to move to a bungalow, I’ve been scratching my bum cheeks. They itch soooooo much! At first it wasn’t a problem but now it is a raw weeping mess; sooooo bad that I’ve spent the day in bed lying on alternate sides to keep my bum as cool as possible. the MS nurse & GP have advised; strong antihistamines , medihoney , tablets to ease stress and E 45 itch cream – AND STILL I SCRATCH!!!!!!!!🥴 does anyone on here itch any where and if so how do you deal with it – succsessfuly. PLEASE HELP…….,

The lady who done my wheelchair assessment adviced me to read up this, if I started to have symptoms.
Hopefully you might find something useful from it.

@merfield , I would suggest a pair of boxing gloves. 😉

But, seriously, you seem to have most bases covered with the present suggestions. Your move has obviously had a temporary, detrimental affect on your Central Nervous System (CNS). So, you need to grit you teeth and dress “comfortably” and enjoy your new abode.

It is said that a property exchange is the second most stressful life event after divorce. So you can understand why this has happened.

@highlander – I think the link is extremely well worth reading- thank you, But nobody profesional who’s been shown the damage has mentioned pressure sores. But if they aren’t- they might well soon be. It’s the itching thats during me mad😳xx
@stumbler , firstly, I’m soooooooo pleased to see your monika once more. Shift is a sorry place without your considered input & secondly: I do a great version of Mammy ( Al Jolson – before your time) so boxing gloves are superfluous to requirements!
You’re nearer the cause though I think. Fingers crossed within a month when it’s all over, I’ll be back to wobbly normal😉xx

@merfield , I get the Al Jolson reference, so I’m not as young as you think.

I can understand you adopting the white gloves, but you might find the accompanying facial make-up may cause offence to others………..😉
