Anyone had any experience with it as an adult? My best friend has been diagnosed with it today and is in a lot of pain, itching like crazy and her hands are swollen (not great when you're a hair dresser). The doctor gave her a cream but said it won't help the itchiness or pain.

I've told her to take neurofen and antihistimine and try calamine lotion but I've never had it, my kids have never had it so am looking for tried and tested remedies to help her.
