Allergic reaction yes, that's right an allergic reaction for Mommy. Someone who has never in my life as long as I can remember had an allergic reaction to anything. Last night my arms started itching a little while Joe and I were at the movies. I itched them and that was that they didn't bother me anymore.This morning I woke up to my arms itching like crazy, then my legs and then my stomach and so on. My whole body itches...I called my Dr. and they had no openings so they suggested I go to Urgent Care. So off I went. The Dr. there told me there was really no way to know what my reaction was to but gave me a steroid shot and a prescription for more steroids. By process of elimination Joe and I decided it had to be the new perfume I tried at the mall yesterday. Since I sprayed it on my arms first and that's where the rash started. So I've had my shot and taken one pill and I'm still itching like crazy but trying to ignore it. I am going to try and go to work and just ignore it some more we'll see if I can make it through the night.
I know that everyone was probably expecting my next post to be about Jacob's Birthday Party and I promise that post is coming soon. I also have to post about the fantastic date and movie premiere Joe and I went to last night. Hope everyone is doing better than I am until later....
Okay so I made it through the night at work but, barely. I could not do my usual job of CSM you know standing around waiting for someone to need me or sometimes running around from one end of the store to the next. This was just not good for me the more I stood the more I itched. So after I decided this I made yet another trip over to the pharmacy to talk to the pharmacist yet again. First he asked me how I was doing I said not so good still itching REALLY BAD! He said have you taken a pill yet? Why yes I have and still no relief. I then said is there anything else I can take or put on this crap to help it? And he unfortunately Jamie since the steroid shot and pills have not given you any relief it's very unlikely that any OTC cream will do anything for you but you're more than welcome to try. So I opted not to waste my money on something that was probably not going to work. I decided that the best thing for me to do was to stay so busy that I wouldn't notice that my skin was itching like crazy, so I got on a register and cashiered for the entire night except for my break time. Let me tell you it was great while I was on that register but that little bit of time that I was off the register was complete torture. But enough about that I have a Dr. appointment with a dermatologist on Thursday am I was thinking of cancelling it earlier today but after tonight no way. I have now at this point and time taken TWO pills plus the shot and two showers, one with some anti itch oil crap and still NO Relief. So if ANYONE out there has any suggestions I'll take them. Thanks so much!
