The Rash 2.0

Ha the joke isn’t bad… I went to see the dermatologist Thursday morning related to my rash. As I knew the rash was recessing and most probably gone I was also hoping she would refer me to a physiotherapist at this hospital – Exercising here or exercising there, we sweat the same, right? Right, thank you.

Not only she confirmed that the Herpes is gone; but new results arrived to her and that show that I have another rash; that could become chronic. I liked the name of the other one but this break all my disease names by far: Bullous Pemphigoid. Guys; wasdat? According to our 21st bible, wikipedia, it is “an acute or chronic autoimmune skin disease, involving the formation of blisters, more appropriately known as bullae, at the space between the epidermis and dermis skin layers. It is classified as a type II hypersensitivity reaction, with the formation of anti-hemidesmosome antibodies“. Tadaaaahh! You know as much as I do about it. She found the suspect in my neck (true I had some itching but I blamed the Varicella) and Pouf! I am filled with a supplementary batch of meds.

The pharmacist where I get my supplies will soon have his France’ Castle Mortgage paid only by me, not surprising he always welcome us with open arms and big smiles…

As for the reference for a physical therapist; the dermatologist reckon it would be difficult for her to send me to a physical therapist just because I am bullous… I can’t argue much with that.

But that rash is very small and not spread much so almost invisible. therefore  can go out and that is important. And if anyone treat me of bullous at least it would be justified…
