I get hives/eczema a couple times a year. I usually use a corticosteroid on the rare occasions that I get this, but I was recently given a new rx for something called Elidel. It's supposedly safer (and is often recommended in pediatric cases), though a search reveals no long-term research to back-up this assertion.
I used it today... It doesn't seem to work as quickly as the corticosteriod, and appears to be giving me mild flu-like symptoms and general psychosis (always fun!). I am tired and sad, and itchy and ditzy, and floating up in that corner over there.
I'm as loopy as loopy can be.
Tonight is karaoke. I wonder if I'll go.
