Born a Bit Different

Well, I was born with excema. I would get hot and break out all over my body. For years my parents thought I was allergic to the sun.

Whenever we went anywhere I'd hurry and look for the shade. My dad never paid any attention to it. He just couldn't understand why I couldn't concentrate on the baseball.

I remember talking to a woman (yes I do that) and as I flirt with her, the blood starts flowing. My body begins to heat up and I start itching. So, as I'm playing my move and itching, I have to tell her it isn't contagious. Which of course she doesn't believe.

I went to the doctor to see if there is anything that I can do. He gave me a perception, but it can't be cured. I have to make sure I have plenty of moisturizer around the house (I buy it at Sam's Club in bulk.)

Every dry season especially, I itch. When I go out to exercise, I itch. I itch when I go for a walk. Some days are better than others.

I have rosacea, it is on my face, and it gets red and dry and I hate it. It can bother me at times, but nothing I can do about it. I know what you mean. Stay creamed up. Good luck.

I was born with excema too. My parents said I looked like a rhinoceros, with my tough, bumpy rash. My mom used to put unscented lotion on it and it worked really well, in addition to using medicine. I just came back a bit, I'm 16 and it's on my cheeks. Just like you, when I would blush, it would turn redder and start to itch, so I would grab my cheeks in order to hide. haha :P

Not the best reply but THAT SUCKS! :p
