95 chemicals on my back!


this morning i was "blessed" with a patch test to figure out what i'm allergic to. hmmm. yes, my lips swell when i kiss my canine and feline friends. that's preventable. no kissing animals. yes, some incense makes my eyes water but it probably has to do with the fact that i burn multiple sticks at once and have a passion for the strongest stuff out there like nag champa. yes, sneezing and watery eyes ensue when the seasons change. but the biggest drama has been the allergic reaction from my lips resulting in inability to wear my fave lip glosses! so, off to the dermatologist i went. i feel like a mummy and twisting (or yoga at all) is out of the picture until i get this mess off in 48 hours.

if you've never been privy to patch testing, i thought you would enjoy this photo that shows what 95 chemicals on a back look like. ahh, hope to return to lip gloss in no time. it's an addiction that i encourage.

Ouch! Looks painful...hopefully not too many of those flair up! I had the scratch test done years ago - and found that I'm alergic to most anything, drats! But a years worth of alergy shots worked wonders! Best of luck at finding those alergen culpris!

Hope you find out what's bugging you missy. Is louis getting all his kisses from Tim? We'll miss you at pilates! Msg me when you want to play- would love play one-on-one.

Wow! I am getting this done on Oct. 1. Was it painful? So what all do they do? How long did it take? Yikes!

Yikes - I've been putting mine off. I don't think that helped. ;)

nope, not painful at all. just felt like a mummy! never fear peppertree - you just have to leave it on for 48 hours and it's awkward but no pain!
