Heading to See the Doc

Hi All!

Well, my rash is NOT going away. Actually, it is here with a vengeance! Last night there were new "welts" and the entire area was swollen and raised and itchy and painful!!! Not my idea of a good evening!

Because my rash is hanging on and it is now officially driving me nuts, I am off to see Doc Feely this morning. I am hoping and praying that he will be able to tell me what the heck is going on!

Here is the rash this morning in a picture with bad lighting . . .

Mom says it looks like I have a lace collar. *sigh* if only!

A couple of the lotions I have tried on the rash have been mentholated and that means that Miss Cleo has hunted me down for a lick.

Because I can't stand her licking my neck (or really any other part of my body) and she is DETERMINED to get at the menthol this is my solution . . .

I put a small dab on the towel and let Miss Cleo go at it. She will lick the towel for a LONG time making sure she gets every last bit!

By the way - I have talked to the vet about Miss Cleo's odd addiction and he says that giving her a tiny bit won't hurt her. After all - we have been doing it for at least 8 years!

Well - I am off to the doc's and then to speech. I am not sure what will happen there because I doubt if Susan would like to touch my rashy neck to give me a massage!

Have a super day!


Voice Update: Did my reading in the Psalms last night. My voice is still doing really well!

I have suffered from eczema for more than a year. You have to use cetaphil soap and cream. Non fragrance detergent and no softener. That is just a start. No dairy. No soy. And no gluten for me. And guess what? It is completely gone. Good luck!

That rash is weird... it looks like maybe it was caused by something you wore? A new necklace or something?
What did the doctor say???
