Exposed!

I found out yesterday I was exposed to Impetigo. I'm NOT happy. About 2 years ago I was exposed to Ringworm and all I did was sit in the persons house and I got it. I had 2 patches of ringworm on my legs for months. That wasnt THAT bad but this could be quite annoying.

Last night I did notice some very small pimple like sores on my legs that did not feel normal to me. Baldyman says I have them all over my legs. At this point I dont know what to do, because I also was in a pool this weekend and then shaved my legs so it could be irritation from that. I'm going to wait a bit and watch the little sores and see how they look today. If I happen to have caught Impetigo, I do hope my work will cover any expenses I have PLUS not force me to use my sick time and give me comp time off. Going into clients homes, you just never know what sometimes your going to be exposed to. I'm one of those that seems to catch anything that is around.

Keep your fingers crossed that for me--this is just shaving irritation!

Dawn, I bet it is from the pool and shaving...I have had that happen before too.....stay positive and don't think about it!

Dawnie said...

I'm trying to think positive Nancy--lol..really I am. BUT.. I just found two little blisters on my lips. I DONT get pimples on my face that often anymore. Ok...so now maybe its my nerves!

Hi Dawn... I hope that it is not impetigo, but if it is, they say to apply coconut oil, or grapefruit seed extract, or washing with ivory soap and then applying campho-phenique works better than any prescription. Good luck!

Eeek, I hope you didn't catch it. If you did, it should be easy to clear up with some antibiotics.

Ginger said...

Oh crap Dawn, just what you DON"T need. I hope it's just from shaving.

Oh Dawnie,
Can I ever relate to that!! Last year my supervisor and I were in a home where there was a bad case of head lice and I just was always feeling creeped out about that. Have you ever had to use the vicks up your nose to cover up horrific smells? It helps a little. Well onto a happier subject. My hubby and I also ate at Fried Green Tomatoes and it's fabulous. I hope you get back to Galena soon. Cindy

OHHHHHHH.....I hope you don't get it too... our daughter had it once on her face...not sure how she caught it....but even now if she gets stressed in the least it comes back in the very same spot...that stuff is gross....hopefully it's just shaving and swimming in the fancy dancy pool...
