This post contains yucky photos. You have been warned.
Sorry to start the year with a nasty post with nasty photos of a nasty rash but this was soooo last year (just last week, har har) I took a break from work for a week. Consider it my Christmas break. I was so looking forward to it.
Anyhow, before the “break”, I am already feeling “the itch”. I know this feeling already. I already experienced this before. I knew its just too good to be true but still I hoped that I am just imagining things.
By the time my Christmas break started, my skin started acting up … like so:
my left side, thank God it was just that part!
A closer look … NASTY!
I cropped the photos because, you know… you don’t need to see my stretch marks. HAHA!!
I immediately stopped using Palmer’s Cocoa Butter
. Although I can not confirm that this rash was brought on by my continuous use of Palmer’s, I can still say that that is the only “new” thing added to my routine. This was the same reaction I had 5 years ago when I used the Cocoa Body Butter from Palmer’s. (But that was worst because a larger part of my belly and back was affected
I started putting cortisone cream and resisted the urge to scratch. I lost sleep because of this because it burns and it really is itchy! I also cleaned the area with Betadine solution and sulfur soap. Basically, it took a week to calm the rash and it kinda ruined my break. (booo!!)
By New Year’s, the rash has dried up. It hasn’t completely cleared, though.
Do you think it’s related? Could it be the cause? Anyone experienced the same thing?
And by the way, HAPPY NEW YEAR!! 😛
