For Topical Use (Hot Spots)
- To soothe skin irritations and help stop the scratch–itch cycle, apply a wet, warm black teabag on the affected spot. The tannic acid in the teabag has a soothing effect relieving the itch. Hold the bag to the skin for 4 – 5 minutes. Do this twice a day for at least 3 days.
- Following the teabag treatment, apply Aloe Vera either from an opened leaf or from purchased gel. Aloe speeds the healing process.
