Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and kind words during this past week. With each day my aches and pains got less and less. By Thursday I moved into the itchy rash phase. At first it was ok. By Saturday it was terrible. I busted out the Benadryl and kept a stead diet of those pills. Saturday night I dug out the prescription strength cortisone cream but nothing seem to work. My skin felt like it was on fire. Sleeping was tough. I thrashed about trying to keep myself from scratching my skin raw. Finally Monday morning it subsided.
Chick G is not fun. I cannot recommend it at all. I never suffered from the high fever or headaches that some people get. However I will never forget the pain of that first night. WOW!
HUGE thank you to my wonderful husband for taking care of me and putting up with me. I know I was not fun to be around and that is putting it very mildly!
