......I always take a HOT bath. And I use 2 cups of epsom which is alot but my tub is a very big tub, jacuzzi size, so it takes a lot of water to fill it. Matter of fact it uses almost all the hot water in my tank.
I know the hot water irritates my feet a little while in it but after I get out it is ok. I have not noticed a problem. I can not take a bath in water that is not hot.
MrsD funny you mention sensitive skin, I never use to have but in the last year it sure seems like it. Matter of fact I have stopped ALL supplements AGAIN except for benfotiamine because something is causing me to break out in bumps and believe it or not, I think it is the B12. I know that seems crazy but I have begun to believe the B12 is doing it. This is the second time I have stopped all supplements and the B12 was the last thing I added back into the mix then it started again. I will add one at a time back starting next week.
And strangely, when I have a flare up with my toes burning real bad, I noticed the last 3 times I have a couple little bumps appear during the flare up on my shin or calf area or ankle that itches horrid during the flare up then goes away when it is over.
