I had to make an unexpected trip to the doctor today (my first visit for myself since I moved here actually lol)
I get an awful rash that cracks and splits tthe skin on the back of my hand a few times a year which I figured was eczema, it's annoying and gross looking but I mostly ignored it since nothing I'd tried helped.
Well I guess one of the little fluid bumps I scratched open by accident got infected. I was trying to just take care of it at home figuring it wasn't bad enough to worry about but DH was "omg you need to go to the dr" and I was going to wait til monday but I figured I'd call today to make an appointment since the doctors here are always booked solid (example, i tried today to make alex's 18 month appt and they're booked until march already). So at first the earliest I could get in for my hand was the 12th. Umm if I waited that long it'd either be better or i'd go to the ER lol. So he took 15 mins and found me something today with an hour's notice. Had no time for a babysitter since my usual lives 45 mins away so Alex came with. She did great despite being stuck in the stroller all that time.
So anyways, yep it's infected and I get 5 days of 4 huge horse pills worth of antibiotics a day. And I finally got a prescription for some cream for the eczema.
Moral of the story, don't be stubborn like me about going to the doctor even if you think it might end up being something minor and silly. Looking at it now, I'm thinking it might have been pretty bad by monday even.
Not sure why I posted this lol. But I figure OT post about my hand is still a post worth posting to help with the slowness around here hah.
Thanks to Bokkechick for my siggy.
