One word: Ringworm! UHHH! So over the weekend, a volunteer and I were at the animal shelter scrubbing down some very sick & abused animals that wound up at the shelter (thankfully they wound up at the shelter, because now they will have food & proper health care as well as a chance to find a good home- they're very adoptable)...well..lets just say they were covered in ringworm...head to paw..not to mention there were collars and chains litterally embeded into the skin around their necks....those poor pups- it was aweful! Thankfully, we got them cleaned up and on the proper meds. However, it seems the other volunteer and I both wound up with ringworm. (kinda stinks because I wore longsleeves and pants , had my hair back and was carefull not to touch any part of my body until I was able to get home and scrub down in the shower.)...well, reguardless, I have 2 spots on my legs, one one near my underarm, two on my stomach ,and one on my chest. I'm not too concerned- i've delt with this 3x before in the past 2 years from working with ringworm animals...so it's not like i'm unfamiliar with it- it's just annoying! and itchy!!!! I'm not mad though- i wound up with it while doing something good to help some innocent pups, so it was worth it. It's just really itchy!!!! Uhhh, I feel like taking sandpaper and exfoliating my entire body with it at the moment. I called my dermatologist this morning and got a refill on my prescription, so I will be picking that up in a little bit. I gave my friend my dermatologist's number....so she will be going tomorrow to get some medicine too. This is soo not fun! My boyfriend has been calling me "Miss Scratchy" all day long!I'm gonna harm him if he doesn't stop lol.
