1 Oct

Today I am super miserable. My hands are very sore and very itchy and nothing seems to be helping them. I woke up at 2am this morning, hot and very itchy so I tried really hard not to scratch (as they’re currently very sore and the skin is raw) so I smothered them in cream, put on the gloves, separated my hands….nothing would stop the itching. My other trick is to plunge them into cold water for a few minutes until my hands get so cold they almost feel numb, but this only lasted for a few minutes until the itching was back again. It is like some kind of lengthy torture…

I had to take picture on my iphone today, so they’re not that great but asĀ  you can see there is far more redness on the fingers. Today I am signing up to my company’s BUPA scheme so I can walk into the doctor and as to see a specialist.

Fingers crossed today goes well…
