UK water affecting skin badly

Postby SimonG82 on Sun Aug 12, 2018 11:29 pm

I am a UK citizen living abroad in Germany and whenever I head back home to visit (NW England) I develop a bad rash that affects most of my body after being there a couple of days. I think it may be the difference in water as my skin feels generally worse after showering or bathing. I have eczema/dermatitis and have had since I was a child. This problem drives me mad every time I head back home though. Has anybody else had this problem? Is there a sensible solution to it?

Hi SimonG82,

Welcome to the talkhealth forums and thanks for your post.

Very sorry to hear about the problems you have been having. We have a wealth of articles on eczema that may help: ... ticles.php

On top of this, we would suggest you see a GP when you are in the UK so they can take a closer look at this and hopefully provide further advice and treatment options to help alleviate the issue.

Do let us know how you get on.
