Did I mention that I'm trying to get a job? So here in Murrica ("fuck yeah!") that means I also have no health insurance, which is roughly the same as no access to health care. So ... aloe leaves it is.

I joked last night that I should sleep wearing mittens so I can't scratch in my sleep, the way they do with newborn babies. Thinking that might actually be a good idea.

What is sleep? Is it fun? I dimly recall enjoying it.
Benedryl pills, benedryl spray [the one that sort of makes a plasic skin over the owchie] and domeboro/borroughs solution soaks. I am allergic to hyrocortisone cream which is another suggestion for OTC treatment
