Hi all, My skin has been acting stranger and stranger over the years. I have gotten pigment blotches from sun exposure and lastly a horrible rash. These outbreaks happen whenever I travel to warm tropical places where the sun is stronger and I am out in it longer. I thought it was eczema at first but it was directly where I had felt myself getting too much sun. So, I have self diagnosed here. PMLE is the only term that even came close to describing my condition. At first it was red and oozy then dried up and itched like crazy. Nothing was helping. I started putting pure almond oil on it and it helped with the dryness but it was still itchy and the pigment remained lighter, like a water stain with a red irritated ring around the edge. My mother in law recommended the cream OZENE made by Premier Research Labs. She had used it for her shingles. It is made of pure olive oil that is infused with ozone, or oxygen. I tried it and it has realllllly helped. My skin is finally not itchy and it returning to it's regular pigment. I felt I had to post this since I did a lot of research on my condition when it first happened and found lots of people suffering with very few answers. Hope this helps someone out there. Good luck.View Thread
