New to this forum and wishing you all well this evening.
I just wanted to share something with you all, for no other reason than I feel like I should at least tell somebody! For roughly the past 4 years I had been suffering with an horrendous itchy rash on my lower legs. You know the kind of thing, inadvertent scratching at night, a lot of blood, general scarring. It drove me to distraction. I saw 2 different consultants, and also had a biopsy done, but the tests were inconclusive. At first they thought it might be something called nodular prurigo, but I personally felt like it was some close relation of eczema. Anyway, I tried all sorts of pills, potions and creams but nothing ever seemed to really help. It made me feel very depressed, mainly because I have always been a keen swimmer and I stopped going to the pool on account of the state of my legs.
Not really knowing what else to do I decided to start drinking a LOT more water every day. Incredibly, it's worked like an absolute dream. The itching has completely stopped, and even though my legs are still badly scarred I've finally regained the confidence to get back into the pool.
I'm just interested, has anyone else ever experienced a similar improvement in their own condition simply by drinking more water?
All the very best to you all and i hope that every one of you finds the relief/cure you're looking for.
