Every morning, I take my meds and it reminds me how mortal I am. I hate it. I’m then reminded of the daily regimen of pills my mom had to take. On Thursday night, my neck and back felt a bit itchy. I didn’t shower immediately after my haircut and I figured that was the issue. On Friday, the itch was still there. Most of the evening, I was scratching away like a dog with fleas.
I went to a doctor the next morning when a rash showed up in my arm and chest. My palms started to swell. Even my scalp was red and itchy. The doctor prescribed some antihistamines. Allergies she said, but I have no idea what I’m allergic to. This morning, my neck, chest and scalp was red. My swollen palms felt a bit better.
So now, I’ve added antihistamines to my regimen of meds. If any of you bump into a guy with a rash on his neck and scalp, that would be me. But I’ll likely wear a hoodie to cover myself up today.
