Born a Bit DifferentWell, 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.
