|The usual suspects didn't make a dent in the itching...|
I went to the doctor.
Dr. It looks like poison ivy -- have you been outside, near any weeds?
Me: I have a terrible reaction to poison ivy, so I steer clear of anything suspicious. I don't go within 100 feet of any three leaf plant...
Dr: Are you using a different detergent?
Dr: Wearing a different scarf?
Me: It's July. Nope
Dr: Anything different in your life?
Me: Well, I did get a new puppy, so I am outside a lot more...
The Doctor got a big smile on his face...and as he pushed his chair back, he said, so, it's a small dog, Rita?
And you carry him in and out of the house?
Dr: In your right arm -- with his head just under your neck??
OMG...my doctor is a genius..!!
|Yep...what you see here is the shape of Frankie's head...|
I left the Doctor's office with a prescription for Cortizone cream, and some pills...and my terrible, most horrible rash cleared up in a few days.
|He's worth it...|
