Just need to rant

Title says it all really just feeling fed up at the moment. Had a bad flare of eczema on my elbows last week, got a bit infected and I had some antibiotic and steroid cream which has really cleared it up which is good obviously but now I've had a flare up of erythema multiforme. Which means I have massive blisters on my palms and fingers which peel off leaving really raw and sore skin. Been to GP today and got antibiotics, painkillers and bandages as have to bandage hands as anything remotely touches my hands it really hurts. It was the infected eczema that brought it on, it's caused by a reaction to an infection. Makes it very difficult to do anything let alone look after an active seven month old baby. There rant over.

One strange thing though. The GP I saw today was one of the doctors in the operating room when I had my c section! She said she wants a change of career.

Thanks for 'listening'

Thanks mrsfuzzy sorry you have got a chest infection, and feel like poop. What a pair we are. Like you say it's a good excuse to have a rest from housework.

I hope you start feeling better soon. All the best.
