March for Babies

Monday, October 31, 2005


It is fall in Michigan.  How can I tell?  Not by the bright orange leaves scattering the ground.  Not by the clear cool nights with loads of stars.  Not by the fact that the Detroit Lions lost...again.  No, no.  I can tell because it is back.  The red itchy rashy painful eczema that wraps my torso in a 5 inch wide band all the way around my waist. I was told as a child suffering from this affliction (ALL OVER MY BODY) that I would grow out of it. Yeah, still waiting for that.  *sigh*  Oh, and the burning itchy watery eyes are helpful too.  I am wearing my glasses and still have to squint to read and constantly have to take off the glasses to wipe my leaky eyes with a tissue. 
Fall is my favorite time of year, but it isn't very nice to me.

Have you tried "everything" ever suggested to get rid of it? I ask only before offering assvice about a great salve I've found. Lemme know if you want info...and how far are you from Windsor?

Yes, where are you in MI? I grew up there, around Traverse City, with a brief stint in Holland.

Great blog! Congratulations!
