I posted in another post about how bad my brain fog and fatigue have been the last few weeks. Well, I have been sick, so I am sure that is contributing to it. But I was trying to think of what else I have done differently the last few weeks. One thing that came to mind is that I started an over-the-counter beta hydroxy acid lotion to help with my acne and sun-damaged skin. As most of you who are way smarter than me probably know, BHA is a form of salicylic acid. I did a Google search and then came here and read all the past posts about salicylates being so bad for us with FM/CFS!!!! Oh, MY!!! I wonder if I could be absorbing enough through my skin to be making my symptoms so much worse like this!! I think I will be throwing this stuff in the trash! How long do you think it will take until it gets out of my system???
