Ever use a long-handled bath brush to scrub your back?
Swap the brush for a dense sponge, and that’s basically the long-handled lotion applicator I got from Amazon. This morning I used it to put Aveeno anti-itch lotion on the itchy spot on the middle of my back. At bedtime I decided to try Benadryl cream – it’s definitely helping.
Part of me feels weird to use a lotion applicator (I can’t just reach?) Yet bath brushes – which reach the same areas – are a bath staple. Strange what seems normal sometimes.
In the meantime, the itch is subsiding and I think I can sleep.
2022 update: https://www.thera-mate.com has a long-handled tool with multiple heads – sponge, brush, etc.
