Silicone finger covers are great from preventing scratching although they can get sweaty and fall off at night.
Spot/acne patches again good for picking prevention and gives sores time to heal. The best brands stay on for longer.
Silicone sheets do the same as above items with larger surface area.
If you believe in homeopathy, tissue salts can aid in all kinds of ailments, in this case calming the nerves.
This shower head really helps to make shower time a less frightening experience if you’re like me and live in a very hard water area. It softens the water so there’s less stinging and better cleansing.
Air purifiers minimise mold which wreak havoc on skin conditions and aren’t great to breathe in either.
Safety mitts are for those emergencies when you’re having a scratching frenzy and need a temporary intervention. I’m still somehow able to scratch in my sleep with them on though, sometimes it’s actually best I don’t wear them at night, maybe their presence reminds my brain to itch or something. If that makes sense.
Antiseptic sprays and antifungal creams are wonderful for reducing infections so you don’t have to go on to antibiotics for the hundredth time. But if you do remember to take probiotics to replenish the gut. I’m surprised dermatologists never told me about these.
I only had the Flow Neuroscience headset for a short while during a time when I was going through extreme executive dysfunction and was therefore unable to use it properly on a regular basis. However, when I did use it I felt a sense of total peace, clarification, and less frustration. If I’d have experienced this years ago I probably wouldn’t have turned to alcohol. So if used properly I’m sure this will have a significant effect on the user. Use code Eleanor_10 for 10% discount at checkout!
I used the first Keen bracelet by HabitAware and found it useful in realising when I was about to pick at my skin unknowingly. It’s sensor activated a vibration. I’d suggest using it along with talk therapy as you still need to shift into a certain mindset to take it seriously (there were times when I would ignore it’s buzzing). The new upgrade has an app which I’m sure would get the user into that responsible mentality.
