Itchy, Itchy Ichabod

On Wednesday, my left shoulder itched like crazy- all day long. On Thursday morning, I noticed some raised patches that were warm to the touch when a took a shower. When I woke up this morning after a night of itch, itch, itch the read patches were halfway down to my elbow. So, after getting both of the kids off to school, I headed to the doctor's.

Turns out I have hives. From what? Who knows? But he put me on antihistamines and gave me an anti-itch cream. If they haven't cleared up I have to go back in a week. God, I hope that I will be itch free soon!

Oh, I hope you feel better soon. I got something similar while I was pregnant and got itchy ALL OVER, in particular my legs and belly and the cream they gave me did absolutely NOTHING! It made it a nightmare to sleep!

I wonder if it was allergy related since Noah has ecxma :(

Feel better soon!

dh and one of my boys get hives sometimes too. Sometimes they have to do a week of steroids to get rid of it. Hope you feel better soon.
