because today I am talking about insect bites.
annually our dog Tessa gets a flea. yes, a single flea. don't know why or whatever.....but you can tell when she gets it because she is a scratchfest......and because that night in bed my leg becomes a roasted turkey leg at a Ren faire! I wake up with dozens of bites because my leg is tastier than our poor dog. then we give Tessa a bath and the flea, scratchfest, and turkey leg eating contest are over. the end! lol!!
but it isn't this that I am talking about. there is some other bug out there and I think it is a State Fair bug because I was like this the week after the Tesla concert also. I have HUGE bumps on my feet and legs. they look more like water blisters than welts. oh, yes, and they ITCH like crazy! like wakeyouupinthemiddleofthenighttoscratch kind of itch! no one else in my family has had this problem. I just think there is something about me (blood type, vitamin B deficiency, or whatever) that makes me look like a chocolate cake to insects! needless to say......I am using hydrocortisone cream like it is regular body lotion and walking like I have a groin injury (oh yes, because my pants rub against the ones on the inside of my thighs and it HURTS).
lovely imagery isn't it? now aren't you thankful I don't have pictures?
