Poison Oak - Oh NO
Monday, June 10, 2013
Last Saturday I did some major gardening. We were digging up irises from the front yard and transplanting them to a back yard flower bed. The place where the irises were planted was around a tree covered with poison oak. I didn't realize it and thought those leaves were just random vines. I have a bad case of poison oak. After a week of using OTC products I finally succumbed and went to the doctor this morning. I got a steroid shot, a prescription for some topical gel and instructions to take Zyrtec during the day and Benadryl at night.
I was told the steroid shot will make me grumpy (not the word the doctor used, but I shouldn't print that word here)!
Hoping to soon get some relief from this constant itch, swelling and soreness.
Live and learn,
