Winter Itch

Or eczema. It is NPH's daily companion, and it really likes to come for visits when the air turns cold and dry. Long, protracted visits. NPH is doing his best to accomodate his guest, who's presence is especially enthusiastic this year, by beginning to take vitamin supplements and by slathering his hands and neck with Aquophor and then covering up with white cotton gloves. Good thing they're so fashionable.

Seriously, friend, any time you wanna leave is good with me.

Hey, you too? Who knew? Did you?

I've not ever had it badly enough for me to go BACK to the dermatologist and get a prescription for it: really all I do is try to lotion well my arms and legs after showering. But I get it every winter. Yuck.

Shortly after posting this morning, had an appt. with a dermatologist. Niiice. An 80mg cortisone shot and two different steroid prescriptions (not to mention tons of free samples). NPH is happy to give a recommendation

I'm waiting for you to pull a bunny out of a hat. Do you mind? I think I need a little entertainment today.

The bunny is covered with a slick of ointment; he slipped out of our hands and got away.
