The sun.

Seriously.

Ever since I was a kid, my hands (which other than my face are the part of my body exposed the most) have broken out in these extremely attractive hive/water blisters once spring rolls around. My feet, legs, and arms do it to a lesser extent when I start wearing flip-flops and skirts. And they itch. Oh my god, do they itch.

My dad had them when he was little but he grew out of them once puberty hit. I was not so lucky.

Anyway, by the time summer gets into full swing, my skin becomes desensitized and the hives mostly go away unless I decide to spend all day at the beach or something and then a few'll pop up later that night.

Being a vampire sucks. :(

At least there's that. Still. So lame.

I used to work with someone who had the same problem. She bought a special kind of clothes that contain sunscreen and that seemed to really help her. She even had the sunscreen gloves to put on while she was driving. The brand name is Solumbra, www.sunprecautions.com, if you are interested. It looks like the items are sold at Amazon as well . . .

That would definitely suck. *hugs*

Oh hey! Those gloves might be handy, actually. I don't need the clothes themselves, it only effects exposed skin so my usual wardrobe does me fine. I wonder if my hands would ever harden for the summer then if I wore them though. Hrm.

Thanks for the info! :D

All I can do is itch, unfortunately D:

LOL, me too. Only not quite as bad as yours sounds.

I blame my mom.

Yay! A fellow sun-challenged American. My brother gets a much more mild version of it as well. He sucks. You're alright, I guess. ♥

Blaming a parent is always the answer.
