Re: Did you experience any of those problems long term?

We've both had varying skin problems since moving to Basel, especially me and we've put it down to apartment buildings having softened water. At our last apartment I developed eczema on both hands and I had to get medical help (I still have marks on the palm of my right hand 3 years on). I also find the water causes a redness to my face, so I have to wear primer under makeup to tone it down.

Reason I blame it on the water is when I go to my home in Scotland for 2 weeks it clears up within days (the area I'm from has naturally soft water)

I never had hay fever before coming to Basel either, maybe because I come from the coast so it's not so prevalent.
