Word-Filled Wednesday

Ointment
Biopsy
Oozing
Crusting
Inflamed
Itching
Madness
Sleepless
%$#*%$# Eczema

Help.

I have eliminated gluten, dairy, soy, peanuts and sugar. Which means no wine. And today? Out goes the caffeine. Does anybody have any ideas? I think I am allergic to myself.

Xanax? Maybe you are. I get on my own nerves.

Trisha said...

Ohhh my. Sorry I can't help but I will be praying for relief of your problem!

Life sucks! Sending positive vibes your way my friend...

Ooh - don't like that word biopsy.
Sounds like you're doing everything right. Soak in a tub of oatmeal - supposed to help with skin irritations.

Clearasil

Seriously. I think I am too. Hopkins is trying to make a case of it for me. No one has explanations.

Nurse Nancy said...

I feel for you....been there and done that. I had a similar issue this weekend....too much tailgating and I am paying the price. Trying to determine allergies is total trial and error. I think I am allergic to chocolate! GAH!

I think you're allergic to deprivation, any BODY would retaliate after cutting out all of the good stuff. I don't like like biopsy word either. Or oozing or crusty. Adding you to my prayers!

Gin said...

Oh no! I have no clue! That's horrible! I hope you find the solution soon.

Mango Girl said...

When I changed soap powder for laundry, my husbands got better. We went to Drift and I use Fabric softener sheets that have nothing added like perfumes or anything else.

Grandson had it terrible on just his hands, so we got some type of an ointment and while he stayed here, we bought a clean pair of cotton gloves, cut the finger tips off for him and had him sleep in them. While he was here, it did get better. I honestly think he finally outgrew it. He only had it on his hands. Abe had it on his back and chest, a few spots on his arms.

Try going without any processed foods for a bit. Then shoot yourself because you can't have wine or processed food. (Just kidding on the shooting part.)

My vote is to factor the wine back in. I think you're going through withdrawals.

Country Girl said...

Oh, gosh! I wish I could help. It could be any number of things.

jojo said...

Oh my gosh...no..I wish I did have some wonderful insight but sadly..no

Camellia said...

Seeing how I am a victim and an expert on horrible skin conditions, I would get an appointment with a dermatologist. Stress is a key factor. I have some stuff I can mail you that will clear it up. You just say the word. Shitty,itchy skin sucks!

Gah! My son gets a rash on his arms from ketchup, of all things! When it gets bad he takes generic Clairitin for a couple weeks until it goes away... Yours sounds a little worse though.
