Not Much Today

I was planning on writing a blog entry about adding beads to designs that don't already have them in the pattern. Then the other day I got into something that made me break out in a rash so at the moment I'm covered in cortisone cream and still woozy from the Benadryl I took last night (I can't take it during the day or I fall asleep). Also, the amazing itchiness of my ankles (the rest is getting better) pretty much precludes any coherent thought right now.

So, next week I will blog about adding beads to non beaded designs. Have a great weekend!

Feel better soon. Can you just sit and doze during the day? With iced tea and a fan?

I'm so sorry you're so uncomfortable!

I heard on a radio-doctor-talkshow once that itching is just intermittent vibration of pain receptors (nerve fibers?), and a painkiller like Tylenol can work wonders (especially if it doesn't make you woozy!).

If you're more into natural remedies, you could try yarrow leaves crushed between your hands and rubbed over the rashy area works wonders. You can also try plantago leaves (common weed in lawns and driveways), but they're mostly used for insect bites.

My pediatrician uncle gave me this Foolproof Method of eliminating itches: put the affected area in the hottest running water you can stand (I use full hot straight out of the tap) for as long as possible (10-30 seconds). The itch is gone for about 6 hours. He says this method does not get a lot of credit among dermatologists because it "dries the skin," but believe me, if you are suffering from poison ivy (or even dry skin itch!) , it really does the trick. We think it probably overloads the nerve endings. My dad lives in an RV and has limited access to water, so he uses a hair dryer on his itchy areas.

Feel Better! I get bad reactions like that to Poison Ivy - prednisone is the only thing that works for me now. I feel your pain.

My daughters dermatologist told her to put cold on the inflames itchy area (for her, her esczema) it seems to help.
I was just thinking of adding beads to a non-beaded pattern...good timing! Will look for you when you feel better. Feel better!! *smile

My sympathies, I would rather have something hurt than itch. And thank you very much for all the work you have done for the Mystery Stole. It is very much appreciated.

Get well soon, and remember: don't scratch; it only makes it worse. Have a nap and you'll feel better. (at least that's my fallback cure. For anything!)
