What's up with a hospital not having wireless? I couldn't believe they didn't have wireless.
I've been sick for a while and it has just been getting worse and not better. I'll back up and tell the whole story.
Back in February - April of 08 Elijah was sick and in the hospital twice during that time. One morning I woke up with a raw red itchy place on my arm. It was SO itchy and it burned with pain.
I went to the dermatologist and he said it was contact dermatitis and gave me some cream. It didn't really get better, but it was tolerable. Before I knew it I had it on the other arm and on my leg. I went back to the dermatologist and and he gave me a new cream to put in it.
By early 09 I had this on both arms and legs and on my sides. I was miserable and itchy. I went to the dermatologist in February and March. At the end of March it was really bad. I told the dermatologist how miserable I was. He put me on Prednisone and it really helped. Things calmed down and I felt much better. Once I finished the Prednisone it all came back and even worse.
Over the summer I went to the dermatologist ever two weeks. I stayed on Prednisone and each time I'd finish a round the rash would get worse. I even visited a different doctor and didn't get any answers. I was miserable and couldn't function to do things I needed to do everyday.
I've been on every med there is for itching and non have helped. Most seem to make it worse. I had an allergic reaction to Neurontin and that was really bad. The dermatologist kept saying it was an allergy in my skin and there was nothing that could be done about it. I just couldn't accept that. Something had to be done because I couldn't live like this.
A friend's husband works at a hospital so she asked him to talk to a doctor and see if he would see me. The doctor agreed to see me and once he did he thought I had a staph infection. He told me I needed to be in the hospital and plan to be there for two weeks.
Once I was at the hospital they did all kinds of blood work and even took 3 skin biopsies. They determined I did not have staph, I have asthma skin. There is no cure for asthma skin.
So now I'm home, itchy and miserable. I did get a new ointment from this doctor, but it has not helped yet.
Please pray I get some relief. I can not live like this.
