I just bought a Shower Filter Water head (cost about $30) and the filter will last for 10,000 gallons. The filter cost is $10 -replacement. I wanted to eliminate the chlorine from the water and it makes the skin and hair feel better. Also try the other lady's suggestion - using Hydrogen Perioxide in the tub- soak 20 min. but put the 1 bottle on with a wash cloth while still dry (outside of the tub) then put the rest in the tub to soak.View Thread
I am 63, female, taking Warfarin, Lovastatin, and Atenolol BP meds - and have been on meds for several years; and that the labels say the meds could cause a person to itch. I just finished an Antibiotic and take Mupurin Ointment to help heal my sores (per Dr. Rx) I have put several type of other solutions, Hydrogen Peroxide, Witch Hazel, Tea Tree Oil, Alcohol, Lotions, and others. I have a medical background and always wash my hands, etc . I just read about a treatment using Hydrogen Perioxide to soak in the tub 20 minutes --using 2 bottles and her sore went away. I will try it.View Thread
