Hi, after many years of taking several medications (BP, Aspirin, cholesterol, low testosterone, nasal spray, anti-histamine ...) and having continuous discussions with my GP about the many side effects I endure - has has always been inclined to say that's a price worth paying!!
In Nov last year I saw an Endo who recommended that I should come off all the meds except Candesarten and Aspirin. Fantastic, and my GP agreed to follow this advise. Now two months on I do feel much better (less mental fog, aches and pains and I have started losing weight ...) which is all good. However, I was moved from my previous BP medication (Ramipril) to Candesarten about a year ago to try and reduce the side effects. I believe Candesarten is better but it does come with one side effect for me which is severe itchiness all over but mainly in the groin area. If I make the mistake of scratching the itchiness becomes very very intense. My GP had put me on daily Fenofexadine and a steroid cream to try to combat this. It did help a little but not much. So now I am not taking the Fenofexadine and trying hard not to use the steroid cream (Daktacort) the itchiness is very difficult to cope with.
Does anyone have any suggestions for natural ways to control / eradicate this itchiness?
