See below: Eurax is primarily used for persons with scabies. It has scabicidal and antipruritic/itch actions. The mechanisms of these actions are not known. For chickenpox-i recommend antihistamines that are sedating like benadryl (diphenhydramine). Topical lotions/creams like calamine or aveeno tub soaks can help. I would save the Eurax for scabies infestation-aka body lice. ...Read more

No cure yet, but...: Allergy shots (allergen immunotherapy) is currently the only treatment that is disease modifiying, meaning it can change how the body responds to exposure to allergens. It is "natural" and long lasting effects carry on after shots are stopped. It works for most, but not all people. Closest thing to a cure so far.....

OTC Allergy: Not fair. Truly, it is trial-and-error. What works best for you might not work best for someone else. Loratadine is the weakest binding non-sedating antihistamine; Cetirizine is the strongest binding non-sedating antihistamine. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) works better than both but it makes people sleepy. ...Read more
