I have very sensitive skin and it’s not uncommon for me to have a reaction to something and have a rash for a week or two.
At the beginning of February (around the 6th or 7th I believe) I started getting a bit of a rash on my cheek, so I did the usual medication and cream like I would normally. A few days later on Saturday it was horrible looking so I went to the Emergency Room, they said it was a skin infection (which I’ve had before so wasn’t too worried, I knew the drill) he gave me some medication to take for a week and I was to stay in bed. Well it was working but after a week (the next Saturday) it was back again so I went to the emergency room yet again and they gave me two different medications to take for 10 days. I did and everything seemed like it was getting better, I still I had a bit of a rash after finishing my medication but benedryl, zyrtec and skin cream seemed to be helping it go away slowly but surely, yesterday it seemed like it was just about gone but today it’s back and it’s starting to get worse again I can tell! I’ve been home for 4 weeks!!! I haven’t left except for doctors visits, the medications I’ve been on are hell (steroids and other things!) I know I’m going to have to go back to the doctor, I’m so depressed, so, so, so depressed! I’m so sick of being stuck at home. I can’t handle it anymore and I don’t want to have to go back on those horrible medications but I’ll probably have to be and I’m sick of spending time at the doctors. Because of the infection and the medication I’m not supposed to spend time in the sun and because of my horrible swollen, rashy skin I of course don’t want to go anywhere not that I feel like going anywhere because the medications make me feel sick and tired and anxious and just all around horrible! I know this is mostly a rant and it’s not like anyones going to be able to help me but a doctor but I’m just so depressed, I can’t handle this. I feel so awful and I just want things to get back to normal so I can live my life. I’m twenty and a girl if this makes any difference, luckily I’m just taking online college courses at the moment and don’t have a job so that takes some of my stress away but…god I just feel horrible and constantly feeling like crying. I can’t imagine if I have to spend more weeks in bed I’ll go mad!
