Itchy

Yesterday’s bug bites have really made me crazy.

Witch hazel has fallen by the wayside, and I even threw alcohol on it through last night. Today has me going for bigger guns: clear Calydryl on my leg, and I have  a sneaking suspicion I’ll probably have to take a Benedryl before bed tonight.

What is really weird is I seem to be courting a rash on my leg. I am pretty sure there’s no poison ivy, but I probably will spend some time on Web M.D. tonight.

Hope I won’t be sorry to surf the web, but hey… beats Urgent Care.

State Bug of New Jersey and Wisconsin and…

..of course I am talking bout the mosquito.

Jim always seems to get chewed up.They seem to get him no matter what, and even though his best of intentions to wear long pants and long sleeves, he ends up scratching.

I have accepted the fact that mosquitos are here no matter what.I try to be wise about it and use homeopathic ways to prevent the bites and/or later treat them. I mea after 3+ cancers, how much poison do I need to throw on my body?

Unfortunately, the fact that I am writing this post means that, all of a sudden, the bugs have caught up to me and I am witch hazel-ing my bites to pieces.I have clear store versions of Caladryl and I am not beyond taking a Benadryl if I am really itchy.

Another reason why I can’t wait for October!
