What’s With the Weather

by ablue

May in Northern California is usually warm and sunny with lots of pollen in the air and friendly breezes to carry it along. As I write this it’s overcast and cold, and the effect on my eczema is very odd. Usually colder weather with light showers makes my skin happy – not too dry, irritated or itchy. But this season my skin is very dry and breaking out every day. I’m guessing it’s because of the pollen in the air, less rain than usual last winter, and stress.
