I just developed these two patches on either side of my neck that are dry and flaky. But the flakes don’t come off. It feels almost like sand paper. Does anyone know what this is, where it came from and how to get rid of it?? Thanks!
I had the same exact thing on the back of my neck shortly after I went raw. If you just put some moisturizer on it (like coconut butter) and leave it alone it will go away. I think it’s just part of detox.
Okay, that is what I have been doing, ironically. I just took a shower and quickly put on a bunch of coconut oil, concentrating on those two spots. It’s weird because it is only on my neck and probably about the size of my palm.
I get something similiar to that on my neck too but close to my hair line. It feels kinda rough but doesn’t really flake off. It kind of comes and goes – I am not sure what causes it either.
I know once I used full strength tea tree oil on a zit I had on my neck many years ago and it burned my skin because it was too strong! And I have had a weird colored patch similiar since then. I thought maybe that the skin was burned on this other patch too.
I put my MSM lotion on it and it goes away for the most part better than if I use coconut oil.
queenfluff, that is exactly how mine is. I tried exfoliating the area, but nothing flakes off. Like I said, it’s almost like sand paper. And you can see the flakiness, but it just sits there. Weird and annoying. Hopefully, the combination of the msm powder pills I am taking and the coconut oil will combat this thing quickly! Thanks everyone.
