Happy Sunday to everyone -I'm just about to plant a few vegetables after some bitterly cold frost warning weather that meant I had to cover everything with sheets.
I have ET, I'm 71, and I'm only taking aspirin at the moment - but my bmb in March showed that I might have B cell lymphoma-so I'm just about to see a hematologist at cancer centre here in 10 days where I'll probably have to have some more tests. I live in Canada- v cold in winter so skin irritation with the ET and a dry warm house has been v. bad especially on my stomach. I've tried lots of different creams, slathered on, and tried showering every other day nothing helped much.
I decided to add 500 mg of vitamin C each day two -three months ago to try and help my immune system (extra to the vitamin C that's in a multi vitamin) and perhaps gradually increase that 500 level of vitamin C if I could without upsetting my tum.
Surprisingly it has improved the itchiness, not sure if its helping the immune system but the itchiness has gone.
