A person deals with sensitive skin during the heat-filled days of summer.

Fall can't come too soon, in my humble, honest opinion ...

Seems that the ongoing heat of summer just makes the itching of my skin worse.  I also have heat rash, which only intensifies things; it feels as if a million bugs are crawling up and down my arms, underneath my clothes, or up and down my legs.

Sometimes the itching gets so bad, all I want to do is cry or scratch even more than I already do.  I have already put big gouges into my skin; I have cuts in various stages (and scars) running up and down my arms and legs.  I am embarrassed to wear short sleeves, tanks, or even going bare chested (or wearing shorts) because then people see the wounds or scars on my body.  I feel their eyes or stares boring into me.  Sometimes they will make comments, like, "Oh, that poor man!"  or I will hear kids ask their parents about what is wrong with me.

It is very uncomfortable, not to mention, unnerving.

Seems I have always suffered from itchy/sensitive skin from childhood.  No amount of cream or lotion or ointment seems to touch the itching.  I know I don't have many friends; I think it's because of my problem.  I bet other people think I might have a flea or lice problem when nothing could be further from the truth.  I can't even get a job because people see me scratching and they don't want to deal with me, so they always pass me by for somebody else.

I know one can't get disability for my particular problem (or at least I THINK they can't), but dang, I would love to be able to find a job!  How am I going to get ahead in life if people don't even cut me a break??

I have been going from one doctor to the next.  I haave had all sorts of tests run on me and have even seen specialists who work in skin disorders.  So far, there have really been no easy answers.  It is extremely frustrating for all concerned, but especially for me.

If there is anything that might help, it would be for this horrible summertime heat to go away.  Maybe fall and winter will help; somehow I doubt it because I itch just as much then as I do now at the current time.  It's just not as intense, but the itching still remains.  I am at the end of my rope; if I don't get any relief from this itching soon I might go mad!

I can't imagine what someone with sensitive skin must be going through when it's hot ... cold dries the skin out, too, so danged no matter what season it is. Hope he finds relief! Well done, Karen.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
