Every darn Spring I break out in a rash on the back of my hands. Sometimes it spreads to the inside of my forearms too. Itchy and annoying I've yet to figure out what exactly is triggering it.
It isn't the typical red blotchy mess but skin toned and very fine bumps too.
Just called my nurse at PNW and asked if I could use the OTC cortisone cream on it I usually use. She'll ask my doctor and get back to me with an email later.
Seriously it looks like I've been petting a dog. I break out from dogs the same way. Just the very reason why I can't have a dog. When I do interact with dogs I have to wash my hands as soon as possible after petting one.
I'm good about not scratching. I've learned that it will just get worse.
I should have known I'd get the rash as I woke up Monday morning with my face so swollen from allergies my eyes no longer had the normal indents below them. Oh wait those are cheek bones. Yes it was that bad. I decided to photograph my face too. Anytime my allergies get out of hand I document the physical symptoms of them if possible because I forget easily, or at least try to forget, the crappy effect it had on me.
My face is back to normal as of Tuesday but the rash on my hands has spread to just under my watch band. While it could be a side effect of the Lupron I have my doubts. Though rash is listed under side effects.
I've also been sneezing my head off. Just another reason I think it is my allergies.
J has CQ duty today. The boneheads decided to post the CQ roster only at the barracks. Since J doesn't live at the barracks he doesn't think to check there for it since they used to post it at the COF until this month. Luckily a co-worker called him yesterday to inform him that he was on the list for today. Hopefully he won't have it again this month but who knows.
So I'll be entertaining myself with movies tonight. I'll have to remember to not have junk food too. Yesterday I started my exercise routine. Hopefully I'll remember to continue it and remind myself to stay away from unhealthy foods.
