Everyone's itchy today. I like it not.
*frown* It must be a growing epidemic. You're itchy too?
Yup, and at least 2 other people on my flist. And we're on all different continents.
Grr! I'm still itchy. Damnit all.
I have also heard freezing gum-affected hair works.
I've heard that as well. *nod*Guess it depends where your gum is... hehe, don't wantto stick your head in the freezer.
Yes, I'm being silly.:P
I usually use an ice-cube, and then eucalyptus oil for the last bits (especially if it's worked into fabric)
That's a good plan. *nod*
My mom is an expert at that. I used to go to sleep with gum in the mouth and wake up with a wad of hair.
lol, nice. She had to become an expert fast.
I have used the peanut butter and my hair (even after washing) spelled like a strange mix of peanuts and cinnamon (gum of choice). Perhaps this is why I don't chew gum...
And, yeah, the seasons changing have made me REALLY itchy. )o: And allergy-esque.
lol. Peanuty hair goodness!
Argh! Me too! Damnit. It's still here, like 3 days later!

If you can tolerate it, get the oatmeal bath packets. They work fairly well for me when I'm itchy. I take an oatmeal bath and slather on cocoa butter lotion or udder cream when I get that itchy.
I hope you get non-itchy soon!
Oooh, I don't think I have any of those. Just in thebath section, or medicine area? Like wherewould I find it at the drug store?

I've found it in the lotion area, but it may vary from store to store. Hope you can find it and get some relief! (Be sure to slather on lotion/creamy goo after getting out...)
*nod* Not a terrible idea. I should find some.
Gum also disolves in benzene, but then you get cancer and the doctors all act like you were supposed to somehow just magically know not to stick your head in a bucket of benzene to get the gum out of your hair.
sometimes your skin itches when it's too dry, and since the weather has been all nuts (at least where i am) it might be dry. put lotion on, otherwise it might stop being itchy and start to hurt (been there) Good luck with the itch!
Two votes for lotion, I think I'm gonna try it. :)
I've been itchy too. Mainly on my head, but that's because I recently realized I'm allergic to something in the new shampoo I started using. So now, even after using a different "tried and true" shampoo, my head and neck still itch so bad that if I didn't bite my nails, I think my head would constantly be bleeding. >.o I've never gotten itchy from the weather, but for some reason my arms and hands are just as itchy as my head. Lotion works for awhile. :\
I'm the SAME! My head has been itching like CRAZY lately! I don't know what's goingon, and my arms and my legs and my stomach, and my BACK. Argh. Soooo frustrating!
