You may have read my post from yesterday about my son's bout with Pityriasis Rosea and how we have successfully battled the symptoms of the rash using all natural products from Sodee Naturals. In addition to these products, he has used a cold pack at times to help sooth the most irritated areas of skin caused by the rash.
I've made plenty of rice hot pads using this tutorial that we love to use in the winter or for an aching muscle, but none of those bags is designed to drape over the shoulders/neck or lay across the entire stomach or back where relief is most needed. Since we still have a big bag of field corn from making corn bags for our corn hole game, I decided to whip up a sewVery Simple Cold Pack filled with field corn for my son.
Here's how I made it.
Place the pack in the freezer for a couple of hours before using.
You'll want to sew up a few of these to keep in the freezer. My son loves that he can walk around with it on his neck and that it won't fall off, and my husband has even tried it a time or two on his knees after a jog! I may even sew up a few half this size to throw into a soft cooler or lunch box to keep things cool when I take the kids to the park or when we head to the ball field for a game. I'm really not sure why I didn't make these any sooner!
These sewVery Simple Cold Packs are working great to help relieve the irritation caused by my son's rash. We are using them in conjunction with a daily routine of using the Calming Calamine Soap and the All-Natural Anti-Itch Eczema Cream from Sodee Naturals.
