I haven’t been posting in a bit due to busy-ness, but I figured out yet another eczema trigger for me, and gosh, what a difference a day or two made.
MY CAR IS GIVING ME ECZEMA (or at least irritating it)!!!
Hard to believe, but. My vehicle is about 10 years old, the A/C doesn’t work since it has a coolant leak, and it started to smell really chemical-y a couple months ago. The car guy told us that there was an emissions leak and there could be fumes getting into the cabin. Whatever, I think, I’m just a poor college student and having a stinky car is okay, what else can I do.
Then, husband and I noticed a pattern. My eczema got better on the weekends [when I don’t drive my car as much]. We tried trading vehicles this past week and I even biked to work sometimes….anything to not immerse my delicate skin in my Toxin-Mobile. I’m happy to say that after just DAYS, the eczema on my face almost completely cleared up!! 😀 I was able to go to work with barely a speck of concealer! Lesson: never underestimate the power of environmental contaminants, even though we can’t see them!
On a different tack, let me introduce you to a fellow eczema blogger that I follow: Is Eczema Contagious. Check out her latest post here for a giveaway contest!
