Hi folks

A query about 'bushcraft' in the loosest sense.

I don't have a beard like some hardcore hipster bushmen. But my electric beard trimmer died while Darwin was locked down last week and so Im growing face fungus until I can next get to town.

Question. How long does it stay itchy for? I'm on about a week now and its driving me nuts ! Luckily it is the cooler season here at present

Comm'n fellas, give me hope!

Beardie

PS. I was affectionately nuzzling The Boy typing this over my morning cuppa and my chin got caught up on his muzzle like velcro! Yukkk!

Give it another 8/12 months Alan and it should settle down
:lol: joking aside 2 or 3 days and the itching should stop

i started sporting face fungus when i discovered it drove my fellow Parisians up the wall. that's over 6 years ago now and i've left Paris long behind but the beardage lives on.

oh, right, the topic: i remember it bugging me for a few weeks. a fastidious washing regime seemed to mitigate the problem then, and now for that matter. i usually give it a good wash once or twice a day. a good rinse after any given meal helps a lot too.
