This tiara has nothing to do with the post, I just happen to like it and want it and am going to try and make a hair comb in this fashion. Drooling and thinking how good I would look in any tiara is what happens when you start googling for a particular tiara and get sidetracked.
Anyway, April is almost gone and so has the autumn allergy rash, almost. Whatever I'm allergic to in autumn and spring gives me a rash from knee down to ankle on both legs. It doesn't go any further, just there is enough to send me insane from the heat and the wanting to scratch my legs to ribbons. But this past two weeks I've had a scratching urge for both arms and my neck.
This is different, no rash appearing above the skin not like the legs which makes me wear very long dresses. I go through the diet to see if I've eaten anything out of the ordinary, nope. I've already had to cut down on tofu as soy interferes with one of the diabetic medications. Grapefruit interferes with cholesterol medication and I've had an intolerance to grapefruit for years. Latest thing is that all citrus, even marmalade, could interfere with certain medications. That's a problem as some mornings are just toast and marmalade mornings and nothing else. (don't mention the porridge) I don't change soap, powder, washing powder or food if it agrees with me.
The only thing I have done is open a bottle of Estee Lauder Youth Dew which I've been saving until I'd finished another bottle of Arden's Green Tea. Bingo! Some medications can make a person photo sensitive and the itchyness is where I've sprayed perfume and I've had sun on my skin. My sister has already offered to take my brand new bottle as it's her favourite but I can spray it on my clothes before I put them on, no itchy. But I must have looked great, scratching like a crystal meth addict all over Southland not to mention getting out the magnifying glass to see if there were any little red tracks which meant I had scabies. Don't laugh, in and out of hospitals and the Home, it can happen although not to me. From now on, it's night cream only for the old face as some creams are also photo sensitive.
You know I haven't had an urge to scratch all day, until now.
