Two things I learned this weekend.......how to get your child to swallow their medicine and how to stop an itchy scalp from hair color!
How to get your child to swallow their medicine.....give them a spoon of Hershey chocolate syrup first followed by the antibiotic. The chocolate kills the taste of the antibiotic.
How to stop an itchy scalp caused by hair color....rub witch hazel onto your scalp. Its refreshing and stops the itching instantly. I normally take an allergy pill before going to my colorist and that helps during the color process but hours later I'm scratching and itching so bad I can rip my scalp out! A little bit of witch hazel stops an itchy scalp almost instantly from hair color.
So what does how to get your child to swallow their medicine and how to stop an itchy scalp caused by hair color have to do with real estate? A lot when your a real estate agent and have a sick child at home that needs to get better by taking their medicine and you don't want your clients to see you clawing at your scalp thinking you have lice or fleas in that curly red hair of mine your's! OR WORSE........THAT YOU HAVE GRAY HAIR!!!
Disclosure - some medicines should not be taken with certain foods, or with any food at all. Be sure to ask your child's doctor or your pharmacist before starting, combining, or chasing your child's medication with hershey syrup or another treat. Try witch hazel on a small part of the scalp before using on entire scalp to make sure it doesn't burn or irritate it more. Do not apply the witch hazel before getting your hair colored.
