Skin?

Post by rufio89 » Wed May 13, 2009 11:22 am

Ouch. My skin is really sore today. I feel like my face and neck and shoulders and chest are burned, and it's a bit sore to the touch. I cant think of ANY reason why this would be, Ive not used different products of any kind, but its hurting, even my bra straps feel like theyre scratching all my skin off..

Has anyone else experienced this/know what it could be?

Nope :( I've been thinking of all those things, but using the same things. It's also really the skin that doesnt have clothes touching it.

Maybe it's just being "itched" by the clothes brusing over it?

It could be environmental. I am allergic - not totally sure what to, as the tests run by my hospital were inconclusive, but definitely to mould spores and some types of pollen. These make my eyes itch, and I cough slightly, but they also make my skin uncomfortable, particularly the face, arms and hands (whether because these areas are more exposed or because they get washed and therefore dried out more often I'm not sure). The main thing is to keep your skin as well moisturised as you possibly can - the oil layer on your skin forms a barrier between it and the irritant.

Sorry to hear that your skin has been playing up. As someone who has eczema I sympathise.
I'd recommend going to the doctor and seeing what his opinion is just incase it happens again. Atleast then you can be better prepared.
Do you moisturise much? If not then maybe try moisturising. I find diprobase is good and helps my skin, eventhough its not bad anymore.
