2. Calamine lotion
You may remember using calamine lotion after a camping trip when you came in contact with poison ivy. This pink, soothing lotion is used to deal with many skin symptoms, including itchiness caused by contact with plants and shingles rashes. You can find this lotion in any pharmacy. Many people have bottles in their medicine cabinet, but if the calamine lotion is many years old, it may not work effectively. Make sure to shake the bottle before using, apply with cotton balls and let it dry thoroughly on the surface of the skin.
