This isn’t a very pleasant blog post.
I have had eczema my whole life. I am constantly covered in scars, blemishes and rashes (sexy I know!) and therefore a few weeks ago, when some new ones popped up I didn’t think anything of it. it was only when they started to spread and itch like crazy I thought I should book a GP appointment.
I have scabies. Bloody scabies.
Last year, I dated an arsehole for a while, and I think he either didn’t fancy me, or was gay, because honestly, any excuse to not have to get down and dirty he would take it. But about 6 months in, he got scabies and it was a right palaver, before that I had never even heard of it!
But now I feel like it is karma coming back to bite me on the bum for insulting him and accusing him of using it as an excuse not to see me.
It is vile.
I feel disgusting. I have rashes all over me, I itch like mad, I feel them crawling under my skin(eww!) and I get a weird tingly feeling all over me. The thought of it is gross.
The worst part is, I have no idea if they are gone (I have used the cream) because every single website tells you something different and people seem to have them for months!
It is literally all I can think about and is making me feel really down, and really self conscious so if anyone has any advice at all, I would be really grateful.
