Well, today is just plain not a good day. I slept in this morning, and when I woke up, my neck and chest are raw from scratching, and I have gone from using my usual Cetaphil, (my favorite moisturizer,) to using A&D ointment. I usually steer clear of ointments and oils as they tend to make me itchier in the long run than the creams. I use Cetaphil as my all over moisturizer after my bath in the morning, and I have a cream called Exzaderm that my mother in law got me from Amazon.com that is a lot thicker and I usually use that on my neck and face. It's a lot greasier than the Cetaphil but it seems to help with itching as well as the dryness.
Today is one of those days where I wish I could have just not gotten up at all. I am so exhausted from itching and scratching that I just want to nap the day away. Add in that I've taken about my weight in Benedryl to try to stop the itching, and being awake is nearly impossible. I'm over at my mom's house so that she can help me with Owen. I guess I have not mentioned that I have a son, he is about a year and half old and so full of energy! He is my inspiration to pull through the hard days, so that I can get to a good day and we can play. :)
