Whilst there are varying degrees of severity related to the itch-scratch-itch cycle and many forms of skin irritations, you can try these options to reduce your reddened and inflamed skin problems and stop the itch-scratch-itch cycle.
1. Cool it with a compress or Aloe Vera Gel in the fridge
Add ice to a washcloth or soak in cold water, and apply to the area. Alternatively, use Aloe Vera Gel after it's been placed in the fridge. The impact of the chill will help distract yourself from the itch message.
2. Reflective scratching
In a mirror itch the opposite limb, ie if your genuine itch is on the right elbow, itch your left elbow. By watching yourself scratching your left elbow in the mirror, you can trick the brain into seeing that you’re itching the right elbow; where the itch originates.
3. Squeeze points
Brace your left arm at the elbow with your right hand, press the forearm muscle and massage for several minutes whilst deep breathing, do this for several minutes regularly.
4. Oils from the kitchen
Natural oils found in the kitchen can soften, nourish and reduce inflammation. You can try Sunflower seed oil, Grapeseed oil and Coconut oil. While Sunflower seed oil softens, all these oils nourish and reduce inflammation.
5. Soothe skin with a Barrier Cream or Skin Repair like NS 21

There is no one main active ingredient in the NS 21 formulation. The natural actives in NS 21 Skin Repair Treatment measure in generous amounts providing a broad spectrum of nutrient-rich base ingredients, which make this formulation the kindest skin repair treatment for chronic skin problems.
Why the name NS 21?
(N) Nutri - a broad spectrum of natural nutritional ingredients which make up almost the entire formulation, (most skin care products contain a small percentage of active ingredients in a cream base).
(S) Synergy - The sum of the individual ingredients is enhanced due to the interactive synergistic formulation methodology.
(21) - Skin cells have a 28 day life-cycle. Within 21 days (3/4 of the skin cell life cycle) and with regular application of NS21, problem and damaged skin is restored.

NS 21 Skin Repair Treatment helps problem, irritable, damaged and chronic dry skin conditions like Eczema, Dermatitis and Psoriasis:
NS 21 is a cortisone free moisturiser
It contains natural ingredients that complement the skin's natural make up and ability to renew.
Reasons to avoid cortisones
Cortisones suppress the immune system
Restrict blood flow to the topical area being treated
Can cause serious damage with short-term and long-term side effects
Cortisones don’t address the cause of inflammation
Negative side effects of topical steroids
Skin thinning (atrophy) and stretch marks
Easy bruising and tearing of the skin
Perioral dermatitis (rash around the mouth)
Enlarged blood vessels
Susceptibility to skin infections
Possible allergy to the steroid cream
The risk of these side effects depends on the strength of the steroid, the length of application, the site treated, and the nature of the skin problem.

NS 21 from - Carolyn
"I have been using this product for several years now as a moisturiser for my face. It is the only product that has helped my very dry skin and now it is part of my daily routine."
Amazing Product!- from Ally
"I have really bad psoriasis on my forehead and particularly in my eyebrows - to the extent that they were falling out. I was using my cortisone cream almost daily until I discovered NS -21. I started applying the NS21 liberally on my forehead and eyebrows every night before I went to bed and then a thin layer every morning before I go to work and just can’t believe the difference that NS-21 has had an my psoriasis symptoms I am now only using my cortisone cream maybe once every two weeks. NS-21 spreads easily and absorbs quickly. I feel so much better".
With the natural goodness of emollients, moisturisers, vitamins, plant extracts and anti oxidants, essential oils and plant nutrients NS21 works with the skin to repair damaged skin cells.
