The only thing I can wear is Cotton, silk or Rayon. It has to be loose fitting. I cannot wear any type of polyester or nylon or I break out and sweat really bad. It also feels greasy on my skin, and it has a scratchy heavy feeling.
As for shoes, they have to be leather or cotton...I can wear the sheepskin slippers, in fact have them on now, but mostly I go barefoot as long as I do not have to walk around on a nylon rug. I found out years ago when my house had nylon rug in everyroom except bathroom and kitchen, and my feet would become all scaley and hard from the nylon interaction with my skin.. We have wool rugs here and I can go barefoot anytime with no problem. All my bed clothes(blankets, sheets) are 100% cotton. I have a feather quilt and a feather bed under the cotton sheets and it is like sleeping on air. I always had trouble with pressure points when sleeping and the feather bed really helped. Naked is certainally the best way to go but it is not very convienient unless I am alone...then I grab my cotton robe if the doorbell rings LOL! But for sleeping I usually wear cotton boxers and spaghetti strap T-Shirt, or I go naked.
I have known since I was 16 that I could not wear any nylon or polyester. I could not wear stockings without a severe rash from them. Certainally no pantyhose UGH! (Since Chemo in the early 70s I have not had hair on my arms or legs or underarms, or private places... so I do not have to wear stockings! Or Shave YAYAY!
) The MDs back then would not believe I could have trouble with that material, they would say Polyester is the best invention since the spoon UGH!
Not for me!!
well...I did not mean for this to be a book...but I get going and can't stop. LOL!
