I went home and told my husband about my skin rash, and he told me to call the HVAC company
My skin was so dry and itchy that I was digging it open while sleeping. I woke up with abrasions up and down my arms, and on my legs. Now, my neck had marks all over, like someone had scratched me. My daughter thought it was a poltergeist, but I knew it was my dry, itchy skin. I had been waking up scratching, and I had to talk to my doctor. When he first looked at my skin, he said it looked like poison ivy, but he quickly changed his mind. He said mine was the driest and most irritated skin he had seen in a long time. He asked if we had an air purification system in place. We didn’t and he said we should look into it. We needed a good humidifier for the dryness, and the air purification system would get rid of the dust and other debris in the air that irritated the skin. I went home and told my husband about my skin rash, and he told me to call the HVAC company. If the doctor thought it would help with my skin condition, he was okay with getting an air purification system, and a humidifier. When the HVAC technician arrived, he asked if we wanted a stand alone humidifier or one that went with the furnace? I told him to get the one in the furnace, because it was overly humid in the summer, but we had the whole-home air purification installed in the entire HVAC system. I hadn’t felt so good in my skin in quite some time.
