I have a skin condition, seborrheic.  It will always be with me and will flare up during the winter months.  It affects the face and scalp.  I'm relieved, because my scalp was itchy for a while and I was getting major whim whams about it.  Felt like little things in my hair.  Even bought an embarassing shampoo!
Since I was there, I had the blood work for Arimidex done and had a flu shot.  I also asked him about a pain I had in my ribbs-area on the right.  Whenever Bob touched it, It really hurt.  It was really wierd.
Turns out I may have shingles.
Itchy in the Cattskills.

Shingles seems to be one of those gifts that comes from illnesses that compromise your immune system. The virus is in your body from chicken pox usually. I seem to get it everytime I am around anyone with chicken pox that stirs up my viruses. I have been lucky that mine have not been painful, just itchy and they are very treatable with the anti virus medication used. Hope yours is, too. Hugs MK
