updates on the insect bites @ 02:26 pm

Location: office
Mood: cynical cynical
Music: group meeting call conference call.

Monday I took my last dose of doxycycline 100mg twice a day. Over the last couple of days, after my morning shower, I have been noticing that the bite marks on my right leg have become increasingly sensitive. I called and got a,we can fit you in - come right over, appointment with Dr P (my preferred GP) and headed over to the office that she was at this morning.

She looked at my legs and diagnosed dermatitis as the cause of the redness and pain (and slowness of the healing). She prescribed Augmentin XR 2000mg twice a day, 10 day course. She advised that I (may) have some GI side effects. I will be taking acidophilus (sp?) to try to avoid the effects.

Thanks! for reading.

If you need someone to check you after your morning shower, I'll gladly volunteer.

Feel better, please!
