By the 2nd-3rd week of May he had developed a little rash, red skin, itchy, dry, tight skin. Noticed this particularly after each shower.
Red blotches all over body, scalp “all scabbed up like cradle cap”. Went to MD who said he had seborraga (sp?) and prescribed pills and cream. They help somewhat, he at least is able to sleep at night, but that’s about it. The itching is still pretty intense. He describes the blotches on his body: about an inch in diameter, white dried flaky skin around the edges, red skin inside, and what looks like a pimple in the center.
In July he had an episode in the heat where he got dizzy, had trouble breathing. He decided he wasn’t drinking enough water so he started drinking a lot of tap water. After 6 days on the tap water his teeth were all loose. Then he read a letter to the editor in the Burl. Free Press about chloramine and stopped drinking tap water. His teeth tightened back up.
