Hi, my name is Shell and I have just joined. I was burned many years ago and yeah, the itch does drive you mad. I know it is very hard in the heat to keep cool. Loose cotton clothes and you could use a cooling mist. Try not to scratch. Trying pressing on the itchy part or massage your skin using a cool cream (keep your cream in the fridge). Hope this helps.

Hi. Glad you found this useful. I was thinking cold showers as well but you already kinda of have that idea, with putting your feet in cold water. Anything that cools your core e.g. eating ice lollies. Do you take antihisthamines? When I was younger, I used to call them my “itchy tablets” Shell 🙂
