Ok, I no longer think my itchy back is simply dry skin. It's just too persistent. It itches all the time. All. The. Time. The smelly antihistamine spray works for about 15-20 minutes. Ditto any of the lotions I've tried. Last night I took a non-drowsy allergy pill which didn't do much for the itch but man oh man did I sleep! I woke up once and went back to sleep immediately and that was it. I didn't even get up to pee.

Depending on the light, it looks like it might be a little reddish. Or not.

I'm madly trying to figure out what I might be doing differently, soap, water, clothes... Nothing is different. It would be horrible to find out it's the pool but I've been in that pool every day for five months. So why now?

This is making me a little nuts. I'm going to take my Japanese wash cloth and give my back a good soaping/scrubbing after my shower. Maybe it's 5 months accumulation of bromine.


After my swim, my day is clear. Nothing on the agenda. I do need to get out and walk.

The house cleaner is due on Wednesday for her once a month sprucing and it's just in time. This place is kind of a mess. I don't feel like I've been messier than usual but the house feels like it for sure. ugh.

Pool time now.
