To think my DH is a bit minging?

DH has mild eczema, so it's not unusual for him to ask me to rub cream into hard to reach places. This evening he whips out the tube and asks me to put some on the bottom of his feet - no problem says I so start massaging the left foot.

Coming to the right I notice a small patch that doesn't look like regular eczema, so stop what I'm doing, and say maybe he's got athlete's foot - he says "Yes, I know I've got athlete's foot, but that's not why they're itchy".

Hmmm don't you think he could have mentioned this before asking me to slather cream into them? Turns out he's known for over a week - I hate to think how many times I've walked in his manky foot germs on the bathroom floor.

hmm my dp gets athletes foot too. he uses his own towel for his feet on floor and i lift it everyday. he renews or put it back down every morning so he' not spreading his germs about.

Isn't it grim?

I'm like Lady Macbeth, scrubbing my hands.
