Can't wait for" Walking Dead"?

Did you ever wonder what Lazarus might have looked like after he was brought back from the dead?  I think it might have been like this:
Lorna, one healthy finger, one, not so much
I think, and my doctor thinks, that this is eczema.  Julia and Emma can't look and Robyn declares "Yucky!"  I've been treating it for almost a month with a strong cream that has a warning about not using too much, (the pharmacist made me read it out loud) and getting nowhere.  Vaseline and hand creams have no effect and while I'm still almost always my cheery self, I am considerably more prone to grimacing.

We're going on a seaside holiday in 8 days.  I'll be the one with the right hand pointing heavenwards, avoiding salt water.

  1. Wow, it looks way worse than you described. I have an ecsema balm that might help. I'll bring it with me on Thursday. Take care. Evelyn

  5. Not really; at first it hurt a bit in the ocean, but then I got used to it. It's worse than it was in some ways, but not as painful; it's spread now to four of my fingers on that hand. Got a dermatologist appointment for October.
