the medium size black book October 16, 2008

My doctor has a black book, and in it he keeps a record of his patients with mysterious illnesses. And I'm in it twice now. First for the internal weird throat thing and now for the external throat rash. He told me he keeps it so he can ring us if he comes across anything in his readings. It's good to know he keeps all us freaks in mind.

So I tried the cream he gave me and it didn't fix the rash. So now he has me on an experiment. I'm trying a stronger cream on a patch on one side and a herbal cream with manuka honey and sulphur on a patch on the other side. So we'll see how that works out.

I said – what if that doesn't work?

He said – then I'll send you to a skin specialist.

What have they got that you haven't?

Stronger chemicals.

Oh, well I'm not really a fan of strong chemicals. What sort of chemicals?

Hmm, maybe a chemical peel.

Oh no, I don't think I'd bother with that. It doesn't bother me that much. Not unless it starts spreading all over my face or something.

Day 2 of experiment. No change so far. Either side.

    So sorry about your rash. Hope something works. Chemical peel doesn't sound like a good thing to me. Yikes.

  2. cat Says:

    lol – no, it would have to be pretty bad before I resorted to it.

  3. SweetMisery Says:

    glad to hear that. just doesn't sound good. scary as hell more like it. lol

    I used ti get ezema.Which basically just meant a rash.Finally it just stopped happening.But when I did have it one of the things that would settle it was comfrey.You don't drink it (apparently not good for the liver).But you can make a strong tea and bathe the skin, leaving it on, a couple of times a day.It seemed to turn off the inflamation.

  5. cat Says:

    well I could make it one of my next experiments
    Although I'm not very good at doing/taking things like that even once a day, I always buy these calcium tablets and multi vitamins vowing to take them every morning but I always end up throwing them out when they go out of date because I always forget about them

    Whatever it is, I hope just resolves itself. Did you have this at the same time as the migraine?
    I can't imagine a strong chemical solution for what sounds like sensitive skin.
    Your weather is warming up, no? Could it be an adjustment to the change?
    I sound like a mum.
    Get better.

  7. cat Says:

    lol – so many questions
    no I've had it for years, its like a dermatitis and never bothered me before but its spreading now. Doctor tells me it's some rare reaction tosomething. Something I ate, or medication I took (could have been many many years ago), then maybe sun exposure caused this reaction.

  8. this made me think back to when I had my eye operation and the doctors couldn't identify the type of tumor so they sent my eye to London for further investigation – it turned out to be a rare thing and I was the 13th person in the english speaking world to be diagnosed – but ever since I have said that my eye got to London before me. The London Eye now!
    Medical marvel – we would expect nothing less from you!

    Have you tried changing laundry detergents? Washing with Dove? *your skin, not laundryChemical peel sounds erm painful…not for sensitive skin. I bet a dermatologist would look at it and know right away what it is!

  10. cat Says:

    I only ever use sunlight soap. Always have.

  11. cat Says:

    oh wow – what a great story,I'd be pulling that one out at dinner parties all the time. Pity you haven't got the eye in a jar, or have you?

  12. Karen Lynn Says:

    hmm ok scratch that idea. do you have ticks in Oz?

  13. cat Says:

    lol, yes, but I haven't got one. Don't tell me any awful story about things burrowing under your skin and laying eggs or anything

  14. Karen Lynn Says:

    no no no…but deer ticks carry lyme disease and it starts with a rash that spreads. and they are so tiny you don't see them. it is usually a bullseye rash though. just a thought…. google it Lyme Disease

  15. cat Says:

    we don't have deers – do they come on other things – you're as bad as emjay, googling all these diseases!

  16. Karen Lynn Says:

    I just looked at images of the lyme rash, it looks nothing like what you have gf. They are definite bulleyes. I google everything!

  17. cat Says:

    well thank god for that – bulleyes saound bad.
    my doctor told me the internet is the worst thing that happened for him because everyone googles symptoms then come in thinking they have some awful disease
