I'm suffering from an icky cold and nasty poison ivy.
The poison ivy showed up about a week ago. At first I thought it was a mosquito bite and started scratching in my sleep. One day at my desk I noticed that the mosquito bite was bleeding and spreading and before I knew it the rash was all over my leg. Then it jumped to my other leg and now it's on my arms. This is misery.
I've been covering myself with Benedryl anti-itch gel, which does help with the itching but it's still gross. At night I've been taking Benedryl pills to both help with the itch and make me sleep. Sleeping isn't easy with the cold altho I did manage to sleep from 9 to 1 yesterday. Shocking.
