Freaking out - little red itchy, burning "bites"?! HELP!

Recommended Posts

ok ladies - welllll, after applying (in this order) witch hazel, aloe straight from our plant, aloe with vitamin e lotion, Benedryl (taken orally), hydrocortizone cream, then finally lidocaine spray on pain reliever... it still f'ing hurt -

 

it was hilarious - i'd taken 2 benedryls, then all that other stuff but I couldn't do anything but stand up or sit up (my back was the WORST but tummy was covered too). So I was exhausted but I could not go to sleep! DOH! Finally I threw in another mixture to the cocktail (why not at this point? rofl.gif) - I took some Rx hydrocodone and FINALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLY was able to sleep around 8pm!!!

 

I also had a slight fever of 99.4 during all of this. Today it's down to 99.1. Martin's Mom thinks I have a slight 1st degree burn on top of the heat rash which is what made the little "boils" on my right shoulder blade - seriously, I have always had such fair skin so I've had my fair share of burns but last night was on a whole different level. It kept feeling like someone was poking me with a needle! OUCH!!!!! I was literally laying there on Martin before I fell asleep just going "ow...ow...OW....ow....ow..." all the while shivering and totally whimpering. lol, I'm sure I was being very pathetic cheesy.gif

 

MUUUCHHHH BETTER TODAY!!! You can still see the bumps but they really do not hurt or itch.

 

So, I'm about to head back out to the tanning bed and try this again...

 

Not!! cheesy.gif

My mouth dropped when you said you were going to the tanning beds again!!!! Good one! I am glad to hear your feeling better. I have very fair skin too and I totally understand wanting to get a base before you go somewhere like Mexico. I have also tried the tanning beds and I was just not impressed. I just don't think they are for fair skinned ladies like ourselves! Your going to be a beautiful bride....just make sure you wear lots of high SPF when your down there. Keep us updated when they go away!

I would not go back to the tanning salon either. If it is really bothering you try a bath in an oatmeal solution for the itching, or soaking in a bath with espom salt. That will sooth, and also camomile lotion is very soothing too. Good luck. Don't go back online for this, you will make yourself crazy! Sometimes too much information is not good either! Stop worrying you will be beautiful on your wedding day, everythng will be perfect.

hi jaime!

I'm sooo sorry ur having to deal with this.

I'm sure you will be just fine before wedding day but I do have a thought...

How bout going to see a dermatologist?

You never know. Maybe they can give you a shot or prescription topical medication thats going to just zap this thing immediately.

In any case, hope you get to feeling better soon sweetie!

Hang in there!!!

Good call to stay outta those tanning beds... if you'd like a 'glow' (not right before your wedding - save this for another trip) consider going to a professional for a spraytan.

I have had a reaction similar to yours, just mine was on the backs of my legs & it went away overnight. My sister, however, had some itchy bumps that she got on her arms that she thought might have been sun poisoning (I didn't know that was possible in a bed.) I think mine was some sort of a reaction to the cleaner they use. I don't know why sometimes it happens & sometimes it doesn't (maybe it's all in how well they wipe it off.) Anyhow, I'm glad it's getting better!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
