This is just a quick post to release some tension. It’s Sunday evening and I’m laid back on the sofa without too much itching for the first time in a few days. I’ve really been trying to treat it regularly and on top of the itching this has meant feeling a bit sticky.
So tonight I have had to force myself to put on more cream and gel. My will power to do this every day can be lacking sometimes. So I took a deep breath, pumped some diprobase onto my hand and started layering it onto my skin. I almost cringed, not again. Just one night without doing this would be nice.
Then the wait while it soaks in. My will power has a boost as my skin starts to feel less irritable. I pick up a bottle of Dovobet gel. Okay it’s better than the sticky ointment version but it’s still greasy, it stains my clothes and it itches until it soaks in and dries up.
So now I’m sat here trying not to think about it. This post shows that wasn’t too successful. Instead I write it down and hopefully that gets my annoyance of this condition out of my system for a while.
