Help please!! Wednesday and Thursday were very very hot days - typically 26C. Even indoors, I was uncomfortable and as the 2 days went on, so I became more and more uncomfortable. My skin became more and more sore and I had prickly heat all over. I had a large fan blasting away at me, but even this did little to settle my skin down. Even when I went to bed Wednesday and Thursday evening, my skin was still sore and I struggled to get to sleep as I could not lay down comfortably.
Thankfully, today (Friday) it is a lot cooler - about 17C - so I am a lot more comfortable, but sore in places due to the continual scratching that I was doing. Even during the heatwave we had in July my skin was not as bad as this, so I don’t know what has changed since then.
So now to help…I had my fan blasting away at me (and a ceiling fan on as well) and was coating my body in Diprobase cream 2-3 times a day. What else can I do? What do you people do who have this problem? My GP has got me an appointment to see a Dermatologist that was arranged 4 weeks ago following the previous hot days that ended up with my skin coming out in odd blotches, but that is on 22nd November so I need some kind of advice before that.
I would welcome and advice that can be offered.
