Nicola @Nicky

I only have it on and in my ears and on my scalp, so I don't think I can use potato for that.

Julia @kelj

Have not heard of using a potatoe before

Linda @justicejones

Thanks for the tip. Will give it a go!

Justin @justin1

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

Ellen @ellen4

Maybe I should cut a few slices & plaster them on my buttocks to help the inflammation & itch !!

john,Hulk @chewbacca

Oh dear haha , you never know Ellen, lot of us have tried strange stuff :)

Rosey @sue2023

Gee noway,not going to add cut potatoes to my morning ritual ,I'd never get out the door! Thanks for the tip though

Michelle @michelle1021

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

Michelle @michelle1021

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


fern @fern65

That's a very interesting tidbit Bev, thanks!
