Curses. After fighting a cold for the past month or so, I started feeling puny a few nights ago. While not a full cold (yet, knock wood), but I do have hives. I started noticing itchy bumps Tuesday night and didn’t think much of it. Yesterday morning, I wrote those same bumps off as contact dermatitis, likely from the new soap and/or shampoo we bought over the weekend. By yesterday afternoon, I realized almost my entire body was covered. An oatmeal bath and two Benadryl helped me sleep last night, but I’m still itching this morning. I’m taking it easy today (read: doing laundry, reading books, and sitting around) and hoping that my body sorts itself out.
