For the past couple of months, give or take one...I have had this strange rash on the back of my legs. Like pimples, but not pimples, just bumps. They bother me, so I scratch at them. Well, stupid me, I now have a bacterial infection in my follicles. Can you spell G R O S S? I thought it was just ingrown hairs so I stopped shaving the backs of my legs. That didn't help. Then, two weeks ago I went to the walk in for a sinus infection and meant to have the PA look at my legs but I was wearing a thong and they made me put on a gown instead of just pulling up my shorts, so I scrapped that idea. I went back to the walk in to have my sinuses checked again and decided to have the bumps checked out. I was wearing shorts and was able to just pull them up. The PA said I have folliculitis and prescribed me some bacterial cream to put on three times a day. Fun. The first thing he asked me was if I'd been in a hot tub. The last type of pool I've been in is the heated therapy pool for rehab. I wonder if that's where I got it from. Tomorrow we are bring mother in law to fire island and staying over night. I will have to wear a bathing suit. The back of my legs are all scarred and ugly from this hideous infection...I wish I didn't have to bare them. I begged easy child to smother me in my sleep tonight. I'd rather just stay home, let H and his mom go and use the next two days to unwind from her visit, but apparently I have to go. Ugh. This rash is so ugly. Not painful, not itchy, just annoying and ugly as sin.
