Are you having problems scratching a hard-to-reach spot on your back? People often suffer from itchy areas either in the middle of the back or a little under on shoulder blade. If you get that kind of problem here are some of the best solutions:
As you might guess the back scratcher was actually invented to scratch hard-to-reach areas on the back. You can find an inexpensive back-scratcher that can be used to help provide relief when there’s a hard-to-reach area on your back that’s itchy.
Get someone to scratch it
This is one of the best solutions because it’s easier for someone else to scratch the middle of your back because they’re not facing away from it. Of course, there’s the issue that it could be awkward to ask people like co-workers to scratch your back. There are also times when there isn’t someone around to scratch your back. In that case, you’re basically on your own.
Scratch the itch with a hairbrush
A paddle brush is often the best option because it’s designed like a back scratcher. Make sure to wash the brush after using it on bare skin, and ask before using someone else’s brush.
Scratch the back on a rough surface
This could include a bumpy wall, carpet, tree, wall corner, etc. This is one of the best options if you want to reduce the itch of your back. If you take this step outside it’s important to keep your skin covered with clothing in order to avoid toxins/bacteria. For example, there can be a lot of bacteria contained on a brick wall.
Use a removable shower nozzle
This is another way to get rid of the itch in the middle of your back. Set the unit to a high pressure then spray the area on your back that’s itchy. This can help to reduce the itchiness on your back. What’s the best water temperature? Cold water is usually better to help lessen the itchiness so it’s better to use a cool/cold setting if you want to get the best results from the shower nozzle.
