Oh dear God; what on earth has caused this rash on my neck?! As if allergies weren’t bad enough in Cincinnati, I’ve got this amazing red rash on my neck that has sprinkled and planted itself on parts of my face as well.
I am getting this sense of deja vu; this happened sometime last year too. I thought at the time it was poison ivy, but I didn’t touch anything yesterday … not even the smelly farm animals at Parky’s Farm, where Elliott and I celebrated the completion of 3 -year -old preschool, along with his class.
I try not to scratch, but who really follows the no scratching rule?! Every nerve is begging me to scratch; resistance is futile.
I am reminded of the episode in Friends when Phoebe and her long lost love, played by Charlie Sheen, are covered in chicken pox and clad in oven mitts so they won’t scratch … anyone who has ever seen Friends knows the end of the story and I’ll leave it at that. If for some reason, some of you out there haven’t seen it, you can ask me what happens; I won’t mind — I would; however REALLY LIKE THIS RASH TO GO AWAY!!
