I was scooting around in my chair and trying to sorta scratch it somehow lol. I went to the bathroom about 5 times as I recall just to scratch and then I was like "Oh sweet relief!!!"
I'm glad at least it made you smile :) it was pretty funny in hindsight. Trying to be all stealth like in a public restaurant with an itchy bum!
Besides, I find laughter is the best medicine.
Yep, allergic to cold. I went into shock so many times. So many ambulance rides, mri's, neurologists, concussions from passing out. I used to have seizures as well at the same time all this was beginning so it was thought to be related at the time. Then that fine day 15 years after the onset I stumbled upon some article about cold urticaria on the internet. I stuck an ice cube on my arm and welted up within seconds. That week I brought an ice pack on a visit to my primary doc and showed him. He was flabbergasted and sent me to an allergist and voila! Finally an answer!!
Oh these weird wild ailments we go through. I feel for you Jan. You're right, it will go away and that's a good way to look at it. Hopefully sooner rather than later!
Lynnwood, alcohol! Ouch!! I've done that with cold sores. I was thinking "I'm going to burn you off my face!" stupid, unsightly things. That's a much smaller area though. Your poor bottom! You're right, not a normal spot for shingles, I wasn't aware of that.
I looked it up and lupus can cause this type of rash apparently. So can RA. Ofcourse none of the articles explained why or I'd link them up for ya.
