This is a very delicate issue, so if you tend to be squeamish it might be a good idea to read this with only one eye open, and the other closed.
Let me remind you that it is not in good taste to laugh at one's pain, especially when it is the result of a medical condition.
I am plagued (love that intense word) by extremely sensitive skin.
I am allergic to lycra & spandex, which doesn't sound like such a big deal until you read the label of 99.9% of all bras; they all contain some of the offending substance. . .
The good news is I have small breasts
(yes, that IS good news in my situation),
so I seldom wear a Bra.
They make me sweat and itch and break out in a rash.
I am much happier sans bra.
Today I put on a summer tee shirt.
Darn! My nips showed through like headlights.
I'm a creative person so I reached for a package of bandaids I had bought just for this purpose. They were small and round (the bandaids & my boobs) and the bandaids promised to be non allergenic.
Check out the photo -
I looked in the mirror and oh-so-carefully positioned the dots and they fit EXACTLY over my nips. Problem solved!
I put the tee shirt back on and off I went to run a days worth of errands.
I bounced through the day with never a thought of my "dots",
about mid afternoon when I noticed a bit of itchiness.
At this point I was in the car heading home; errands done.
*LISTEN & LEARN*
What I forgot to include in my thought process regarding the bandaid dots was -
"at some point those bandaid dots have to be removed".
I reached under my tee shirt and wept into my Sonic diet coke as I RIPPED those freakin' dots off my boobs.
I am going to rethink the use of Petals.
