Works for Me Wednesday
What doesn’t work for me theme for this week really got me thinking when my eczema went haywire. I’ve barely been able to do anything including type, hence the absence for several of the days. I normally use a lot of baby products on my skin, or at least oatmeal soap, and then lots of lotion. I know better than to go without certain products in my reach. I left my lotion at Mr. Polka Spots and was completely out of my oatmeal soap.
Thursday was the kids field trip to the zoo. (no pictures, but more about that later this week) I thought that being nauseated could be from the bus trip, but oh no come Friday night it was the worst stomach bug that I’ve ever had. I dehydrated really quickly but then it all stopped. Saturday morning I woke up with the palms of my hands were swollen and bumpy. Since then I have been battling my eczema flare up with the wrong soaps and lotions because I was not prepared. I ended up at the dermatologist and health food store to get the proper prescriptions, shots, soaps and lotions. I hope everyone takes care of their skin, because sometimes things sneak up on you.
