Remember when I had some kind of allergic reaction to my thumb? Well it happened again only this time I know what I was reacting to. Well I think I know what I'm reacting to.
Can you make out the outline of the bandaged? Boy my leg looks fat when the camera is so close to it taking such a flattering shot! So here is the story: I had a itch on my leg and found myself scratching it so I got up and put on this:
|Notice that it says "Latex Free"|
Yes, the ankle is swollen! So am I allergic to the Latex Free Bandage or the Itch Relief! Since I have the shape of the bandage I'm going with that. Anyone else allergic to Latex Free bandage's? What do you do then, when you need a bandage? This is what I am doing now.
|Hoping this stops the itch and keeps out any germs. It's also a different brand, just in case you know. And I got Maximum Strength because it was the same price and figured for the same price, I want the stronger stuff.|
|This will also fight infection - well that's the plan anyway.|
With nothing to stick to my skin, I shouldn't have a reaction, right? RIGHT?
This bandage sticks to itself so again with nothing sticking to me I hope there is no reaction!
So to all my readers out there, ( all 4 of you) any ideas on what else I can do? I am also taking 4 meds to help with allergies. A pill, a nasal spray and two different inhalers to keep my lungs open so that I don't have a full blown Asthma attack. I love Spring!! It still is Spring right?
