This is not going to be a weird post about.. skin.. but it is.. ha ha!

When I was younger, I used to get eczema AND heat rash! Yes! Both.. In the same place! It was so annoying because when I would scratch I didn’t know if it was because I was hot or because I was itchy because of my eczema. Anyway, it used to come in the most annoying places like in the bend of my arm.. the back of my legs (where my knees bent) and the back of my calves towards my ankle. I used to scratch so much that it scarred. Eek.

All that hullaballoo stopped when I was about 11 or 12. My mum had gotten creams and such – E45, Betnovate, etc – and eventually it all went away.

It’s back.

I have no idea where it came from.. I think early last week I started scratching my arm and the back of one of my legs before I realised what I was doing. It’s. Back. Argh!

It’s oh-so-very itchy and it’s just calling me to scratch it.. but I know if I do I will scar and bleed.. I have already begun the process. I can ease the urge by putting a cold compress on it.. other than that I am generally a bit stuck because I cannot remember how I used to soothe it before..

I’ve decided that I don’t want eczema/heat rash anymore.. You can have it back now 🙂
