Avoiding the Itch

Still getting better a tiny bit at a time. The rash on my leg continues to improve slightly, but it still itches. I don't have any of the cortisone ointment that [personal profile] lindadee suggested, but I do have sunburn ointment with lidocaine and aloe vera, and that does keep the itching somewhat at bay.

After one cold, wet day where I restarted the fireplace, it has warmed up a bit again. This allows me to go back to wearing shorts. Those of you who came by our table at Norwescon were able to chuckle at the sight of me in floral shorts (actually swim trunks), which were the only ones I could find that fit me the last time I shopped for shorts. I don't wear them often, but it helps my leg because not having cloth rubbing on the bite rash reduces the irritation.
