I use coconut oil - rubbed in AND I ALSO HEAR that rubbing lemon/ lime or any citrus fruit SKIN, just before bed works miracles!

Hahaha you all are funny. I haven't tried it yet but I home so Ellen I will let you all know. Strange that they say potatoes help for the itch but we can't eat it. White potatoes that is. Well nothing wrong to try it but first I need to way some pizza. To get an itch that is. ;)

I heard of putting a potato in your bed if you have restless leg syndrome and it works

That's interesting Bev. A few Flaymers suffer from restless leg syndrome if I'm not mistaken? Maybe one can give it a try?
