Nothing to be embarrased about
here friend. I have heard of these as we discussed before. What i know of them is that they are painful and itchy (as u said) and they are not to be removed for fear of not healing. Not sure how 'official' that info is, but that's what i read. I would suspect that, yes, u'll need to be careful of other symptoms coming on. Have these ever come up with any other flare?? U have a lot on u now Lysha, be good to u'rself and rest when u can. U'll need it in the coming weeks and u may not be able to just stop then. I know u...u'll say u will rest and u don't really. <tisk, tisk, tisk> This time do it!! Let u'r body have a chance to catch up to what u've been doing and dealing with. Stress isn't just on the physical body...it's mental and it all affects u'r symptoms. Take such good care friend and let me know what u may need from me...i'll be here.
