Oh no, been there done that. Two week old baby in the car seat next to me. Dr had a beard (don't know why but that made it worse). He asked to have a look, bloody pad and all. He said 'they're not so bad' (excuse me it's not you who had to shlep her arse out of the fridge to come down here) and gave me a useless foamy thing.
