I am happy to have Permethrin cream left over from scabies outbreaks.
Swear last time it was Art's nasty car, or the closet of dusty linens and piles of clothes I was helping him organize as I kept him company about a year or so ago...
OR the dusty back room of winery when visited my friend who was proudly showing me the new labels and organization in that dusty space...
OR when I pulled out clothes from the attic at change of season.
I know when dust mites are there they like me.
So this time, after going through the bags of clothes- which I will definitely take out of my car and launder and then re-pack to donate...
I was sitting at church noticing a few tiny itchy bumps..
They were on my wrist.
I was definitely bitten.
I applied Permethrin from wrist to forearms.
AFTER I had put the clothes of hers in the wash and had bagged up the others I had IMMEDIATELY Washed my forearms with HOT WATER.
I HATE THEM.
They get me all the time!
NOT everyone apparently is as susceptible which I don't quite understand.
So at least I headed it off and will prevent an outbreak.
Church was just an incredibly insightful experience again this morning. I really am going to miss my Pastor as he is retiring this August.
He is so good! His sermons are so rich and motivating and full of intelligence applied to our daily lives with historical explanation and context of the Old or New Testament readings.
It is like no other.
those pin pricks ...
Crap its crazy itchy and pin prick points of pain on occasion... but this will pass and it will be way better than this being an extended thing.
I just hope I caught it early enough and don't have the after affects.
The ghost threat being responded to.
I am hoping perhaps the prednisone taking for the Poison Ivy prevents such.
Hmmm maybe should have read about if can use both at same time, any drug interactions?
Darn did not think of that...
So too late now.
OK so back to cleaning. My goal is to get this done today. The living room- I need to get the teen up and engaged. Do my best to motivate her.
I don't see why since she is not engaging in school work...
Back at it.
In other good news my 19 year old WENT OUT !!
YEAH this is a first in YEARS.
To go out with friends.
YEAH that is a good thing!!
But at 19... have to respect the age.
Of course this is a young 19 yr old...
So the conversation last night was helpful in going over plans.
Glad I was connecting and conversing and my child was communicating.
Their INITIAL plan was that they are familiar with public transportation enough.
But they didn't realize our local bus service that connects to the rest of the world DOES NOT RUN ON SUNDAY.
So glad I spent time chatting with my young adult last night to help think through the plan and shore it up to be a more practical and safe one for them.
I am delighted and know they will have a day to remember!
This is particularly important since the gift I got to bring them to a BTS concert was cancelled last year due to Covid.
AH a quick google shows no interaction with permethrin and prednisone. Biggest issue is that the corticoids sometimes makes scabies feel better temporarily and in poor countries in particular folks listen to ads for it where they can get it over the counter and never see a Dr. And then bring about far greater health problems but not properly treating scabies outbreaks.
SO I went downstairs and told the teen that she needs to get her things away today , that I got bitten...
Sheesh.. this will be a battle.
There is no invader here.
Perhaps in PTSD moment of someone exercising any authority at all to these teenage brains it FEELS like such...
DEFENSE MODE HAS KICKED IN HOWEVER...
Wish me luck...
from the actual invaders of mites. LOL
Her older sister at college LOVE Environmental Science and took a few college courses, basically a minor in this area of studies currently.
But I don't htink it is the WORK itself...
I HOPE BASEMENT DWELLER goes back to the basement to get his work done as if he is there it is a losing battle. I am outnumbered.
Othewise there is no winning this living room battle today.
Again... Wish me luck..
I will go down and start with books first ( even with basement dweller there,I think I can navigate that successfully....It is the rest... to get it all done that won't happen unless the sibling leaves).
