Plaquenil has a reputation for causing sun sensitivity and a rather large proportion of people taking it are reporting itching, scratching themselves to bits and raised, blister filled lumps and even hives but when I started itching it was over a week since the sun burn I had. But not all are associating it with the sun since a lot of them are housebound with Lupus.

Cold Salt Water for Itches?
Earlier in the day I went looking for a clean looking spot to get cool locally and I ended up at Fraser Park just past the GB shops heading to town which is actually the designated bathing area with a life-saving tower that only operates in peak season. There was no-one there yesterday. I had been to my closest favorite spot at the SS. Onslow Cadet area but the water was not blue enough for my liking. I took a few photos before I moved on but the camera kept saying that the SD card needed formatting so I did not bother trying to take any more at the later spot. But I did want you to see the erosion at my usual spot. The causurina is more or less in the water now and the weed is building up from all the effluent following all the rain over Summer. Even the sand bars when they are exposed they are gaining a green distant glow -some green algae maybe? Doesn't that mean phosphates? The declining health of our waterways especially the Pumicestone Passage worries me. and what do you think of my bathers? a boob tube on top of a shiffon dress to hide my stomach plus bikini bottoms. I should not have left my top so exposed because I got a flush of burn and I am itching there despite starting the Claratyne yesterday.
