View Full Version : Itch

I had to do a lice head check today at the center for Developmentally Disabled adults today.

I ITCH! I don't have lice, but I am itching from horn to hoof.

Make it stop! If I take an antihistamine, will that make it go away?

I know I start feeling itchy when I start thinking about things like lice, fleas, etc.

I'd try the antihistamine. And distract myself.

Thanks guys for the tips! I took the antihistamine a few minutes ago. I hope it works.

Arrgh, I hate the phantom itch feeling! :bigeyes: If the antihistamine doesn't work, I would suggest a nice hot shower :) And a distracting TV show.
