The ITCH gets worse

So on Wednesday when I went to the Dr the "rash" seemed almost bearable ... of course until Friday afternoon when it seemed to get worse ... I called the Dr that afternoon just before lunch. I told her I had been in on Wednesday and that the Dr told me if the rash got worse to call in they would get me some relief called into the pharmacy. So I tell the nurse that the ITCH is killing me I can't handle it! She says no worries I will get a script called into CVS right away! I said thank you have a nice weekend.
Keep in mind my Dr's office closes at 2:30 on Friday. I leave work at 4pm and go to CVS ... I go through the drive-thru window to pick up my meds ... I get my bag and shake it with delight ... AWWH drugs ... wait no shaking. What? What is this? No Drugs? Where the HELL are the pills? Where is the reliefe?
They had called me in a topical cream ... yes that was the size of a eye dropper ... what in the HELL do they want me to do with this?! Apply it to 1 centimeter of my rash .... it is all over my body ... if this a joke?! I am starting to cry and the Pharmacy tech sees it in my eyes ... "Honey are you okay?" "No, No I am not okay you see I have this rash and I don't need this freaking cream I need a cure ... this wont even cover an inch of the damn itch." I get my card back and leave.
Immediately I call the after hours number to my OB ...
Nurse: hello, how may I help you?
Me: (Sniffle Sniffle) I called in today to get a script for my rash and they seems to have misunderstood what I was looking for
Nurse: mama is this an emergency
Me: Well my rash is much worse than what it was this morning and I want to scratch my legs and belly off
Nurse: mama I can't call the on call Dr for a script
Me: (now hysterically crying, and barely heaving out my words) I AM NOT CALLING ABOUT A SCRIPT I AM CALLING ABOUT THE RASH THAT HAS TAKEN OVER MY LIFE. I am not trying to get you in trouble, but you see this rash is all over my body and they have given me a cream that wont even begin to cover the infected area. (Still weeping) I guess I will just go to the ER cause I can't handle this.
Nurse: mama I am so sorry I didn't realize you were so upset, please calm down I will call the Dr right away! How can she reach you?!
Me: (Still sobbing) I am sorry I didn't mean to yell or scare you ... she can call me at 843- ... - ....

So by the time I get home from CVS which is only 4 miles from the house ... I talked to the Dr 2 times. Still hysterical and apologetic to her, I must have said I am sorry 15 times. Within 45 minutes I was in the tub, out of the tub and back on the way to CVS for round 2 of drugs.

I take a HUGE Glass of water so I can gobble down what ever it is I get ... I get there get the script, take one immediately. By the time I get home ... the Wonderful Husband that I so carefully picked out if the sea ... had started to fix me a bath ... I sit on the couch to wait for the bath to get ready and before I know he is asking if I am ready ... I died ... yes died! The drugs didn't really stop the itching but they KNOCKED ME OUT! Kinda hard to itch when you are dead asleep! He puts me in the tub and checks on me several times ... wanted to make sure I wasn't drowning!

I slept through the night for the first time in weeks ... woke up ate breakfast took another miracle pill and slept until 1. YES 1 pm ... got up and got ready for my last shower and the
Cinco De Mayo Party Andy was throwing after the shower.

I felt great all day and night ... hardly no itching ... until this am ... now the itching has turned into bright red spots ... little spots almost like ant or bug bites ... all over from my knees down. My belly is still itchy but not near like my legs ... it is unbearable. It is 5:30 pm ... I woke up this am at 7 am took a shower (Water is the only thing that seems to relieve some of the itch) Took another pill, and was back in the bath by 10, another bath at 2 and yet another at 4. I have another Dr appointment on Monday and I HOPE they can give me some kind of solution for this ITCH. I think I will die if they don't!


PS The Cinco De Mayo party was a hit ... I think we had 50 - 60 people stop in to eat and hang out ... it was nice to see all of our friends together ... but very hard to digest the drunks ... being sober isn't always easy ... haha!

did you not try the cream?
what oral did they give you for the itching? like a medrol dose pack or somethin? what the hell...

that reminds me of the time i had chigger bites all over my legs and feet. I thought I was going to die! But of course its not the same, but I remember thinking I was going to die from itching to death then.

I hope the doc figures out something for you. I can't imagine you can keep taking baths 3x's a day. How many weeks are you???

Oh yeah, and I hate being around drunk ass people when I'm the only sober one. Like how stupid can you people really be? Fall down in the BBQ pit and catch yourself on fire? Sure..go right ahead. But don't forget to stop. drop. and roll you drunk ass sonsabitches.

Sorry. I forgot for a moment and was having a flashback. My bad.
