Hey All!
I just had to post here today because I know that you will understand.
Since last Wednesday I have been getting more and more blisters and most of them are now infected. Some will clear up and then new ones appear and this never seems to stop. So far, I have taken two days off work and I feel really guilty about it. The blisters are now on the back of my legs so there is no way I can sit in an office chair...sniff.

OK - vent is over...I know this will end.

Thanks for "listening".

OK - I'm back at work today but the areas that have or have had blisters are driving me crazy with itching. I do mean crazy - I'm totally distracted by the itchies!!!

I went to the pharmacy and asked them to recommend a cream to stop the itching. The pharmacist looked at my hands and said "I'm not touching this one, you need to see your doctor." I am so frustrated! (and itchy)

Scratching in frustration,
Sarah

Hi Sarah,

Sorry I haven't visited here in a while...
Are you on Antibiotics...?
Are you under immense stress? that will bring them on...

And I know how bad the itching can be....but THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT IT IS A SIGN THAT THEY ARE HEALING....I PERSONALLY LOVE HEALING TIME...SCRATCHING THEM IS FUN...

but sometimes i get carried away and they reinfect/blister again...

DON'T FEEL GUILTY FOR BEING HOME FROM WORK...boy, you have to rest and give your body a chance to work its magic...

And Ouch I feel the sitting pain you have right now...
Lie on your side...watch telly or whatever else you do...

Cya
Love Pauline
