No, we just have a 14' Sailfin and are still in the learning process. We normally go out of St. George Island or Bottoms Rd in Panacea. We do need to try Shell Point though.

some present pon entire back--not just one side--another misconception.
herpes zoster doesnt follow rules, as per human body--it doesnt foloow rules. no medicine is written in stone.

I'm an herbalist, as well as a sailor, try using a comfrey based salve and wearing the wicking shirts.... or go shirtless as much as possible and let the air and light heal you naturally....

Treatment for Grover's Disease Geared Toward Relieving Itching and Rash

You might want to get second opinion on how to deal with it. Mayo seems to say thta clogged sweat glands can be part of the problem, in which case sweating itself would not be a problem. Keeping the skin clean (washcloth frequently) might help. Using talc will help keep the skin dry, also the "wicking" quick-dry type shirts instead of cotton. There are "cooling vests" of different types and prices that also will help keep your body temp down, which will reduce some of the sweat.

But is sure does sound like you'll just have to use some patience to try different ways of reducing the problem, while waiting to see if it passes. Getting old sucks, but then again, it may be better than the alternative. (G)

Moisture wicking shirts make all the difference! Cotton just holds moisture against your skin. I wouldn't go backpacking in a cotton T and I only sail in a cotton shirt when it's not hot and humid out.

Re: Avoid sweating? But I'm a Florida sailor.

Got the diagnosis from the biopsy. Gotta take lots of steroids and she (dermatologist) still says, "Sweating aggravates it". Might go away and might be chronic. A possible reaction to taking meds for Malaria years ago? What?

We have property in WY from living there in the early 80s. If I even suggested we go back there my wife would have her stuff packed before I finished the sentence.
In spite of being the windiest place I have ever seen, ther isn't much water for sailing.

I wouldn't want to move north at all. Besides, you'll sweat up there in the summer too.
