H Lesley, thank you for the question and my apologies for the long delay with my response but I was away presenting a talk for Longevity magazine.
There may be a number of reasons for the reaction you are experiencing. Following your history of allergies and previous eczema it may be due to an allergic reaction, however, my feeling is that you are experiencing a different climate resulting in your skin reacting. The Gauteng is known for drying one’s skin and this may be the reason why you are experiencing the changes noted.
