I know all about crazy skin stuff. It could very well be a synthetic perfume. Or pistachio nuts. Or molds in the air. Or too much spandex in a particular clothing blend. Or certain antibiotics. Or a cat three blocks over.
I get dry skin on my feet and ankles. Pretty much everywhere else, I get hives, if one of the many things that seem to upset my skin comes into contact with me.
-Try not to use softener at all; unless your local water is incredibly hard, you don’t really need it on your towels. I firmly believe it’s all a marketing ploy and never buy it.
-Try putting jars with water under your radiators and air grilles, to combat air dryness.
-Try this line for your skin, instead of Avon freebie. I buy it for my mom, she loves it.
