what is the remedy for itchy skin with leisons oozing clear

This answer was rated:

what is the remedy for itchy skin with leisons oozing clear liquid on all parts of the body?

It sounds like this might be a bad case of a contact dermatitis. Contact with poison ivy would be one potential culprit for such a picture. Iwould recommend treated the lesions topically with Caladryl lotion (the tan variety which contains calamine) Taking OTC Zyrtec 10mg a day will also help with the itching. Getting in to see your doctor or a dermatologist would be worthwhile as this condition may resolve more quickly with either an oral taper or shot of a steroid.

I hope this information helps. Further questions are welcome if you have them.

I explained why i could not accept the answer in my reply.

I signed off to allow other providers to answer. I'm not sure what you want exactly. calamine helps. Caadryl is calamine with benedryl in the formula to relieve the itch.(There is a clear variety but this lacks the Calamine which helps the lesions to dry)

A largely unknowm remedy that helps is to apply milk of magnesia to the skin. It has a soothing , drying activity on these type of lesions.

I don't claim expertise in homeopathic remedies so beyond these suggestions I will pass.

Good Luck,
