Harmful sweating!

Post by Trishia » 13 Dec 2018, 09:33

I have just been through this awful sweating. Melbourne has been very humid lately, and I am prone to excessive sweating.
I had the same condition as this article shows, on my legs and arms. It was going to tother parts of the body, and I went to a Doctor and got help.
I took 2 weeks of different treatments to get rid of it.
The first doctor wrongly diagnosed it as "Scabies". The second doctor said "What rot!" it is a bad allergy.
The treatments of antihistamines and oily ointments, plus washing with Pinetarsol liquid or soap,
finally got rid of it.

That's useful info, Trishia, good to know. Hope now that you've got rid of it, it won't come back. With unpredictable weather, who knows? But you do have the solution now.

I wouldn't be going back to that first doctor!
I dream, therefore I am.
