I have changed from tide to arm and hammer with no perfume or dye. Worked all summer NO ITCHING,until I returned to Florida for the winter. All of my clothes, bedding, and towels are full of tide. I am double rinsing everything. . My arm pits are raw. I read the articles on making your own soap. I am going to try it. Have you noticed the HUGE SELECTION OF TIDE PRODUCTS in the soap isle? It is shocking. My mother always used tide, so did I , But, when I stopped (I was in Michigan). I double rinsed everything. It was an awful job. HOWEVER, I stopped itching all summer in MI. HOPE THIS HELPS, GOD BLESS YOU ALL. I am back in Florida, double-rinsing and waiting for my raw itching pits to heal.
Wow. I wonder now if Decadron may be contributing to my partner's increased irritablity and anger. He gets Decadron as a pre-med infusion every two weeks as part of his chemotherapy treatments. He was also taking Decadron pills for a couple days after chemo, but stopped that (with his oncologist's blessing) a couple of treatments ago. He still gets the black hole appetite though and over the past few weeks has become for angry an intollerant of any mistakes that I or anyone else makes. Does anyone know how long it takes for the Decadron side effects to dissappear?
