My Mad Bleach Skills [May. 3rd, 2013|06:54 pm]

You guys remember when I used to joke that my sweat was bleaching my clothes?

Well, turns out I wasn't kidding, only I didn't know it.

According to new research, scientists "...found that a couple different chemicals accumulate in vitiligo-affected skin: peroxynitrite and hydrogen peroxide (Yep, the same stuff that's often used in bleach)."

You are a fascinating case

That's interesting. My brother went through a period where he was told he was allergic to his own sweat - basically it caused unpleasant rashes in all the places that sweat accumulates, which I'm sure you can imagine. He had to give up all sports and outdoor activity until it could heal up and get under control.
