I have a rash that is currently covering nearly half of my face.

It started out as a small, dry red spot next to my nose. In the last ten days it has grown to cover most of my cheek, from the eye ridge beneath my eye, across the cheekbone and along my jaw to the middle of my chin. It also covers half of my upper lip, then up the side of my nose. It is very red and swollen. It hurts and itches.

So, today I went to the dermatologist...they aren't sure what it is, but they are calling it "contact dermatolitis" and they gave me a steroid shot, an oral steroid pack to take over the next week, two topical creams and Tylenol 800 mg.

I just put topical cream #1 on and my face feels the best it's felt all week.

I have a follow-up appointment next week.

Hubby just got over a nasty lower digestive bug which was naaasty. So far, 2008 has been a repeat on a smaller, more annoying scale, of 2007 as far as the medical issues goes. Very frustrating.

To make matters worse, somehow Bank of America Visa decided to duplicate two payments I made and now I have to take my medicine-faced self to my local branch in order to straighten it out so that my checks don't bounce.

Lovely.
