I have a rash everywhere caused by my immunosuppression being changed and I have either caught chicken pox or measles or both The biopsy they took from my arm will confirm which but not until thursday and the itching is sending me mad Is normal porridge oats ok for bathing in and more importantly does it work?I have eurax which does nothing

Oh, poor you, sounds awful. Normal porridge oats is fine, tie it into a muslin cloth or put it in the leg of a pair of tights and hang it underneath the tap so that the water runs through it. You can use the bag on your skin as well.

yes, put them in a sock and hang it under tap. You can also use bicarbonate of soda and take an anti-histamine 9if allowed)
