Not fair. What works for one person might not work for another with the same exact skin.
Unfortunately, no herbal treatments are fda-approved or tested, so i simply remind people, "let the buyer beware." i recommend hypoallergenic lotions as the best initial therapy. Dry skin is a huge cause of many skin problems.

Itching from Bug bites are usually safe to treat home unless you get sick such as in west nile.
