I know no one can give me medical advice over the internet but I am wondering if anyone has had a rash like this...

It is on my forearm, about 1 square inch, red, raised (whole area is raised), swollen and itchy. No hives or bumps. Doesn't seem like it is spreading.

WH and I hike together.

Could be ringworm; you can get it from your dog.


I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

Aaaaah oh no. I totally ruled that out in my mind because I was like, "Naaah she doesn't sleep in bed and I never have skin to skin contact with her poop!" Crap. I guess a doctor's appointment is in the cards for me this week!

Nettles
Poison Ivy
Chigger Bites


It is what it is, not what we hope it can be.

When another woman takes your husband,
sometimes the best thing you can do for
yourself is to LET HER HAVE the worthless
bum.
