Last week, I didn't even appreciate my clear, non-itchy skin. I just walked around, taking it for granted.
Prior to my visit to the doctor, I did a dangerous amount of internet research to try and figure out what these itchy bumps where trying to tell me. There were moments I felt sure I had shingles, then measles, along with some other diagnosis I couldn't pronounce. I also knew plain old allergic reaction was a possibility. But what could have caused the retaliation going on all over my neck and face?
Sadly, the only conclusion I can come up with is maybe it's the new perfume I bought about 3 weeks ago, and although it didn't cause an immediate reaction, maybe over time, my body just said, "Enough!" I loved the smell of that perfume, and splurged on a $100 bottle of it. And now that I've bought all the OTC medications, gone to my doctor and filled my prescription, it's probably more than doubled the cost of that little bottle of perfume.
