Little Pea is UG-LEEE

I am having a major skin allergy attack. I went to the doctor yesterday and he gave me some steroid meds. A cream that stings and some pills I haven't started taking yet because he said I could wait a couple days to see if I saw some improvement. I'm taking Zyrtec too. I took this pic yesterday at the Dr's office and still can't believe I'm actually going to post it. I might as well, ya'll saw all my other 'Pea is sick' pics so why should I deprive everyone the pleasure of feeling sorry for me this time too? I shouldn't. Notice how I made it small though. It's too gross for the large size. I'm actually much better today. The red and swelling have gone down but I have all those weird bumps that just look like I have really bad acne. It was the worst around my eyes. I'm pretty sure it's a reaction to the sun, sunscreen, and really strong soap I used on Wednesday because I was in a hurry. I also got stung by one of those mini-bees, a really angry one I should add. So the combination of all those things, plus the fact that it was really hot and there was some pollen in the pool made my skin really furious with me. I have some hives on my shoulders and belly too. But I don't itch. Just my eyes.

I have self-imposed a quarantine until Monday at least cuz I don't want to scare anyone. Plus the heat makes me feel worse. Hopefully I'll be presentable enough to make a public appearance in a couple days. Until then, the Pea is staying inside and out of the sun. Feel free to cringe. I'll probably take this picture down when I come to my senses so I suggest if you're thinking about printing this out for Halloween purposes, you better do it now. Enjoy your weekend guys. If you don't look like this picture then you're off to a head start already.....

We need to just lock you up in a room full of critters and soft pillows and books. No more reactions!

Oh, poor baby. I'm so sorry.

I am also prone to hives, contact dermatitis of various kinds, and stinging insects love me. Sometimes little children run from me, screaming, in the streets.

Staying inside is a good idea. The last thing you need is sunburn on top of all that.

Feel better soon, Little One!

Sometimes you never know what causes these things.
Take good care of yourself and take it easy. Did you eat citrus or have any cologne or body wash with citrus in it before going out into the sun? Sometimes that is the cuplrit.

You realize that if you click on the picture, it comes up nice and large right? :P

So sorry, my face is feeling itchy now too. I think I'm getting a sympathy rash.

I love Zyrtec! I hope the rash goes away soon so you can get outside and enjoy the nice weather. And if you get a chance, send some of that FL heat up to MT. :D
