Out of the Frying Pan

14 Jan

I finally gave up on my poison ivy, and Sunday afternoon I took myself down to the local Doc-in-a-Box for a look-see.

I have shingles.

Frankly, I’d rather have poison ivy. This will probably last longer, but at least it isn’t contagious. The doctor gave me a prescription for a steroid cream and some pills, and they seem to be working. At least I don’t have to keep changing the bed clothes to keep from spreading “the itch”.

    Please talk to your doctor about getting the vaccine. My father-in-law ended up getting shingles four times before he passed away– each attack got more severe.

    Oh no shingles is painful. I hope the meds work. Take care
