Its Not All Roses Being Queen of The Martians

I have this weird rash between my fingers that is driving me crazy.

(Yes I've reached the age where I complain endlessly about my aging body. Just wait until I blog about my cholesterol. You guys are in for some fascinating stuff)

I looked up rash on google image and it was pretty darn gross people with the flesh falling off and blisters and for some reason about 70 crotch shots of really really scary looking problems. I thought yuck how can I do that to my bloggy friends first thing in the morning so instead I will post this



chicken fingers much better and they taste better too.

This rash showed up about a month ago and its red and itchy and I think about it all day long. I tried creams, soaks just about everything. I've even slept with socks on my hands. I'm trying S's old psoriasis cream and its seems to be working a little but the question is where did it come from. Here are some of my thoughts:

  1. Its an overworked and too tired rash. My fingers have given up. They don't want to clean anymore or change diapers or make dinner. They're on strike and the rash is their protest sign. Good for them
  2. I have leprosy (why not go for a classic)
  3. After being made queen of the aliens I caught some weird outer space disease but it was totally worth it.
  4. I am slowly falling apart
  5. The fat comment made them really angry so they decided to get all rashy in retaliation
  6. Maybe there is no rash and its all a figment of a deranged mind.
  7. I have a flesh eating disease and I will be a goner by next Tuesday.
I'd like to end this post with a picture of some lovely finger foods because I'm hungry and it is so much nicer than a picture of a gangrenous hand.

LOL!! I'm all for #3. Has to be. And you are making me hungry too!

Oh dear, I do hope your hands don't fall off.

Perhaps you should go to the doctor and get some cream for yourself. Radical, I know. Taking care of yourself! ;)

Finger foods! How perfect!
I hope you don't have to move to a leper colony. If so, make sure they have internet hook up. I'd hate to miss your blog.

Last week I had a horrible rash on my eyelids of all places. I looked like something out of the Adamm's Family. The doctor didn't help, but Aveeno did. Try it, if your family isn't up for moving in with the lepers.

What kind of hypochondriac are you?? Get your rashy fingers to the dermotologist immediately. Wait - are you a hypochondriac? Maybe I'm thinking of someone else... But you really should see the dermo.

I agree, Aveeno anti-itch cream works. I get rashes between my fingers a couple of times a year and it's the only OTC I've found that does any good.

Hmmm, sounds like something I used to get when I was a kid. I only got it during the spring. I wonder if it's an allergic reaction. Try not to let it drive you crazy.

Ren said...

MMMMM, chicken.fingers.

I hope your rash clears up too.

Now...where is my lunch...

Have you seen your Google ads today ? There maybe a solution just waiting for a click!

Prefers Her Fantasy Life said...

Based on my mom's experience with rashes--cause I'm just not that old and infirm yet--a prescription cream with a steriod is the only thing that works.

Good luck.

Erin said...

I wonder if you cut off your hands if you will feel better?

Sorry you don't feel good.

April said...

I wonder if one can get diaper rash on their fingers?
If I meet you on the street, can I yell "hope your rash clears up!"

Valarie Lea said...

Yep # 3 that's what it is. Now curiously enough I am hungry for chicken fingers. Buffalo chicken fingers with ranch dressing.

Mrs Parks said...

Oh, I know that rash!
The only thing that cures it is a mindless Laverne and Shirley marathon accompanied by an endless supply of milk and Pepsi and an entire bag of Funyuns.
Trust me.

My you look great today! Are you working out?!? (thought you could use another compliment after that last post!)

I would pay for a Google filter that does return crap like crotch shots. Someone get on developing that, wouldyouplease?!?

debbyweighsin said...

Hi Suzie, I had a rash like that once. Can't remember how it started--combo of stress and washing my hands too much??? Anywho, it was driving me nuts, but I wouldn't go to the dr. And a dermatologist came into our unit (I am a nurse) and gave me some samples to cure it. To my recollection, it was a superstrength hydrocortisone cream (3% instead of the 1% that you can get over the counter.) Cleared it up in no time.

GO TO THE DOCTOR!

Happy Thanksgiving, Suzie. Thanks for making me laugh!

My Wonderful Men said...

FYI gloves and socks are not good that will make it spread. The rash needs air to dry out and go away. The cream your using may help or like the post above suggested hydrocortisone is great!

Thanks for not posting the rash pictures. LOL

Kristin H. said...

I have reactions to Triclosan (the antibacterial agent in antibac soaps.) I have the same thing happen to my fingers.

Jannie said...

I'll take the chicken fingers and dip any day over a rash.

My daughter when she was maybe four called a rash a "radish." She had radish on her bottom.

Cat said...

Fingers are SO overrated. You don't even need them, really. Those diapers? I thought they changed themselves?

adrienne said...

I get that rash on my hands, too. I think it's eczema. There's a non-steriod cream called Elidel that works.

honeywine said...

Okay... now chicken fingers and rotting crotch shots are forever linked in my brain! lol

Chimera said...

Stop with the pictures of food whilst talking about gammy hand. I am never going to be able to eat chicknen nuggets again damn you.

April said...

I appreciate the yummy pictures. And you are totally queen of the aliens.

Queen-Size funny bone said...

Remember you want to dry it. no gloves, creams etc.

Annie said...

You're missing the obvious.

First, go to the doctor and get it looked out.

Then, tell your husband that you absolutely cannot change ANY diapers at all until it clears up.

Then lie about it clearing up.

Stretch it out to, oh, April.

WillThink4Wine said...

Umm, have you asked the doctor? Or your pharmacist? Tried Hydrocortisone creme? Drank enough wine? Just saying.

Brooke said...

I cant decide if I am hungry, or grossed out by the talk of rash...hmmm I think I will take another look at your pictures without reading the text. ;)

I say take a photo and give more description as maybe someone will know what it is. We're moms. We can handle the grossness.

In the winter, I get a rash like that with washing my hands with antibacterial soap a lot and not using enough lotion. Also, using gloves too much (hey, I'm a nurse). And of all things, using lime or lemon juice when making drinks. It has a reaction in the light.

Hope it gets better!
