Itchy Fingers

I have always had mild eczema... although it was much worse when i was schooling and trailed off as i entered adulthood, every once in a while it will come back and haunt me. eczema is a skin condition which the doctor classifies as "no known cause" and when it flares up it is SUPER itchy... some say it's triggered by certain foods like seafood, nuts, soy etc. but it's really difficult to pinpoint which one...

scratching an eczema itch is like.... hm.... sinning. you know you're not supposed to do it but it's so tempting to scratch so you scratch scratch a bit then it feels so shiok you scratch and scratch and immediately after that you totally regret it when you see your bloody scaly skin and wish you hadn't done it... yeah... and living in singapore does not help cos it's hot and humid which makes you wanna scratch more...

can't wear short skirt til it recovers -.-
