Rashes are gross and disgusting.

And I have one.



That’s my arm.

Gross and disgusting, right?

Ho hum.

Last night, I noticed a welt like rash on my legs, mostly on the front of my thighs. I was kind of panicking. Especially when my dear husband said, “If your throat feels like it is closing up, please tell me so I can take you to the ER”

So, I took two benadryl and went to bed.
I woke up the next day and checked out my thighs and realized the rash had faded a bit. Good news!! Then I looked down to my ankles and they were COVERED in this rash.
So were my upper arms.
And as the day progressed…
My back.
My stomach.

And so, I made an appointment with my favorite doctor, who is also my friend, Dr. B. (Shout out to Dr. B!!) Actually, I felt so cliche, reaching out to a doctor who is my friend, saying,
“So..I’ve got this rash I need you to look at…”
My appointment was after school, and by that time, the rash on my ankles was nasty after standing most of the day, even though I tried to sit as often as possible today.

She thinks that it is an allergic reaction to something I ate (since it is all over my body) and prescribed some oral steroids. She is leaning toward the shrimp I ate for dinner last night, but we just can’t be sure.

Ugh. I hope that when I wake up it is much smaller, and not all over my face or something.

In other news, I am obsessed with Trader Joe’s lately.
Tonight we had one of their frozen bagged dinners, it was Gnocchi and Gorgonzola, like mac and cheese. I served it with pieces of chicken breast mixed in and roasted cauliflower and brussel sprouts on the side. It was SOOO delicious.
Why have I never made gnocchi before??? Potato pasta. That is like heaven.

Well, I am on Benadryl right now, so I am practically seeing double, so I am outta here…
