We've all done it!

Trust me to be working on the hottest and dare I say most humid night of the year.
Even with air con, and probably due to the fact the shift was so busy, by 5 am I felt as though I was smelling like a dirty whore of an unfit mother .
Having no time to shower and not having any change of uniform..I resorted to a tried and trusted fall back.... A quick delve with a packet of borrowed wet wipes and a squirt of some nicked antiperspirant

Big mistake.......
I forgot that I have overly sensitive skin
And from 6 am my now fragrant groins and " nether regions" now feel as if a very large man is sand papering them with gusto

Hey ho....
A lesson learnt eh?

  3. oops! hope you recover your smooth as a babys' bum skin soon!
    On the day of my Sisters' wedding, many moons ago, my Dad thought he'd better try some of this new fangled spray deodorant stuff..........he only went and sprayed his armpits with pompadour hair laquer! So he held up the queue for the one and only bathroom whilst he washed it off.

  7. I keep telling everyone this, but natural Thai crystal deodorant is 100% effective, safe and odourless. It is miracle stuff and I would never be without it.

  8. Same could be said for using peppermint foot spray to freshen up other clammy regions.
    Fortunately, it was only the back of my neck though.

  12. they say that wet-wipe dermatitis is on the rise!
    i have used alcohol wipes as deodorant, they are very effective

  13. A liberal application of Dettol on the affected regions should work wonders (for any observers).

    1. We have eczema in the family and I have given two of my children evening primrose oil capsules and cleared theirs quite young. For an adult take 2000mg per day and it takes a couple of weeks to filter through. (I had severe infantile eczema in the sixties and my mum used to put olive oil on me!!!!) My childhood was blood stained sheets and complete bandaging.
      Alternatively starflower oil is stronger than evening primrose.
      Good luck if you try it.

    2. Thank you, if it's safe I will give it a try. Steroid creams lose effectiveness after awhile. I never had eczema until I was 19, but twenty years later it's gotten worse than ever.

  18. Oh dear, bit like chopping a chilli and having a scratch! Not done twice.

  19. Would it feel better if the man wielding the sandpaper were Mr. Crowe?

  20. Ow!! Do you have lockers at work? If so, maybe keeping a travel size container of soap and other toiletries wouldn't go amiss. Or just go with the stink until you get home.

  21. If I have said it once I have said thousands of times: People are too scared of smell and the faintest whiff of body.

    Leave off those deodorants. When the Angel - who showers evangelically - leaves the house I air the whole place. The stink of his deo is awful. As yet I haven't been able to explain to him that water will suffice.Still, my time will come. Or not.

    Love,

  23. "Cien" roll on deodorant from "Lidl" is cheap and kind to sensitive skin. Do you think that would be a good advertising slogan? There's nowt worse than a smelly nurse.

  24. Plain yoghurt is good for "burns".... a bit kinky round the nether regions but needs must!

  25. Coconut oil. No pun intended.

  26. Ouch!!

    As another with exremely sensitive skin I can imagine the itchy, scratchy pain you are now going through ... but yes ... as you say we all do it ... over and over and over again :-(

  27. LOL! @ yorkshire puddings' possible slogan! Could extend to their feet too!

  28. Seriously the western world is so behind the times, we need those bum washing hoses they have attached to the toilets in asia or bidets like Europe. As it is I make do with a good wash with the aid of a water bottle and some hand soap. Pat dry with loo paper. TMI ?

  29. Oh, John, you made me laugh! But I'm so sorry for your predicament. I hope you have it resolved. And I really needed that laugh though....
