August 2007. She went off the water and her legs have been slowly clearing up. The one not so bad is completely healed but there is scarring and the pigment is darker. The other one is almost healed up. She took a shower 2 weeks ago because she was desperate to get clean -- and she paid - both legs got bad again. She drinks and cooks with bottled spring water and her son, who works where there is no chloramine, keeps her in water from there to bathe with.
