Until recently, the one that befall me was really a serious one! I woke up from my nap (on the fifth day of Chinese New Year) and found the back of my neck, scalp and my back were extremely itchy; after thorough checked, I realized the itchiness was caused by rashes. Without further delay, I rushed to see my family doctor and was given some medication and cream to apply.
I really thought it was settled as the rashes subside almost entirely at night. Alas, but things got worst the next day, now my whole body was covered with the red spots.
Then we decided to see another doctor for further consultation (My family doctor was off on Saturday evening). I had a jab this time with new medication. The doctor did comment that even with jab thing might take few days to recover...which it does.
And my lower lip and mouth started to swollen the following days due to side-effect of the medication. It was not a pleasant feeling as I can’t speak well and unable to close my mouth tight.
Thank God, everything seems getting better on the fifth day as the rashes has ran it course.
Now, I’m back in the pink of health. If you were to ask me, I still have no idea what is the reason that trigger the outbreak, but my best guess is the change of hormone (during menstruation).
I just prayed hard that it would not “attack” me once again!
