Contending with poison ivy

Saturday, April 22, 2017

Hello and good evening to everyone. I made my second trip in two days to the ER for poison ivy. I'm extremely allergic to it. The ER doc this second time just kept saying "WOW! Oh WOW" you know it's bad when they say that.

My back, left arm and neck area.

It's on my scalp, in my ears, on the palm of my hands.. you just about name it. I have been able to keep it away from private parts by using gloves since it's covering the tops and palms of my hands. At least this time they didn't just give me a shot and send me away like yesterday at urgent care. Today I got a 16 day supply of Prednisone, Pepcid 40 mg tablet at night for itching and although I can't get the other oral syrup for itching until Monday I was satisfied. It was just so funny hearing him keep saying "WOW, oh WOW"

Well that has been my day. I did not exercise since I'm supposed to keep as dry as possible I figured sweating would not only irritate it but since the oil is what actually spreads it I didn't want to take on that chance as well.

I have been sciatic pain free since Monday the bulging disc must have decided to pop back in place when I twisted just right. Thank God I don't have that as well to contend with.

Well hope you guys are having a wonderful Saturday....Enjoy it.
