All I can say is that it worked for me. I read about it on this site. I was ready to try anything! This is easy--and not messy. I heated the rash area just until it just started to burn, quickly removing the heat. I waited a bit, and did it again--about 3 times. The persistent itch stopped, and I finally had relief for a good 6 to eight hours. I do it in the morning before work, and again in the evening before going to bed. I also used some Walgreen's anti-itch cream before bed one time, which is mentholated. It did help the itch--felt great--but around 4:30 in the morning, I woke up itchy. I "hair-dryered" the rash, and went back to sleep.
