My husband has very dry itchy skin on his lower legs. Sarna is the best product we have found to relieve the dryness and associated itching. Prior to using Sarna he would scratch his legs, especially at bedtime, until they bled. This problem is totally eliminated by applying Sarna before he goes to bed. Some people complain about the scent, but my husband and I both find it pleasing and it opens up the sinuses! A bonus is that Drugstore.com offers Sarna at a more reasonable price than we can buy it locally.

My oldest son has had eczema since he was 6 months old. I attempted to use this product on him as an everyday moisturizer when he was 5 years old. Immediately his skin broke out even worse and he screamed because he felt like he was "ON FIRE." I had to immediately give him a bath to wash it off. My suggestion is that if you have any areas of skin which are cracked, broken, or severely irritated, that you opt for the Sarna Sensitive which is made without the Mentholatum based ingredients.

    Sarna is the only product that works for me.
    It stops the unbearable itching I have almost on contact. I don't love the smell of the lotion but my husband does. But, it works!!! My dermatologist recommended it to me.

        I suffer from eczema and this is one of the products my dermatologist recommended to relieve itching. He instructd me to keep it in the refrigerator stating that chilling the lotion would enhance the cooling effect of the product. He was absolutely correct, it makes a noticeable difference. Try it!

        Comments about Sarna Original Anti-Itch Lotion, Original, 7.5 fl oz:

        When you need to slather LARGE AREAS of your body with an ANTI-ITCH medication, this is a lifesaver!
        *I buy the "unscented" *Sarna formula for Sensitive Skin, not this one. (for Psoriasis, etc.)
        * Comp: Tiny tube of Benedryl is fine for a mosquito bite, but I suffer with skin peeling & itching on 75% of my body. This is the solution. THIS HAS COMPLETELY COMPARABLE ACTIVE INGREDIENT.
        *Active Ingredient: Pramoxine hydrochloride 1% (an "External Analgesic" that numbs the area, thus eliminating itching.
        I have a "serious" skin-nails-&-hair condition. I wish I could post pictures here--my arms & legs literally shed skin like a snake. This completely stops the itching for several hours.
        *My husband complainers that this even numbs his palms when he applies it to my back, so it definitely works.
        This is the only over-the-counter, large container (7.5 fl oz), pump-lotion, anti-itch formula I've found; it is recommended by dermatologists.
        I often wake in the night, frantic until I find my Sarna Lotion, slather this generously all over my legs, arms, and feet. I recommended it to my 87 year old father.)

            Comments about Sarna Original Anti-Itch Lotion, Original, 7.5 fl oz:

            There is something comforting about the old-timey smell of this lotion. I know that very soon after I apply it my skin will stop itching and burning.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Delivery was prompt, product in good condition. Not all retail stores carry Sarna and I always like to keep an extra bottle on hand. Price is at least as good as in stores.

              Comments about Sarna Original Anti-Itch Lotion, Original, 7.5 fl oz:

              This is a product that was recommended to me by my dermatologist for a deep itch caused by arthritis in my neck. Since the itch was so deep it was fairly unassailable by normal means; eg. scratching it. Sarna can be applied to the area and it alleviates the itch for several hours, it smells heavenly and I can't imagine life without it. The small scabby area that I had from my repeated attempts to get relief by scratching is healing nicely. Sarna is a lifesaver; an itch that can't be scratched will drive you nuts.

              Product is effective and fast working, feels and smells good, short staying power, expensive. drugstore.com is too costly especially with their inflated shipping and handling. Their delivery time is acceptable.
