The Itch

I never thought I'd say this, but my husband is on steroids. It's not what you think.

Last weekend Mr. B&B decided he would volunteer to help clean up the Charles River. He picked up trash and pulled rugs and 6 foot pipes off the banks. During this adventure, he apparently brushed up against a seemingly innocent, foliage free vine and he has been paying for it ever since.

Poison Ivy? Poison Oak? Poison Sumac? Who knows. All we know is his arms and legs are covered in itchy, pink blotches of all shapes and sizes.

So, the doctor put him on steroids until this coming Thursday. We aren't sure it is working. Any home remedy suggestions?

Until this subsides, I am sleeping on the couch with the kitty. No itchies for us.

Poor adventurous, do-gooder Mr. B&B.
