My Neck Has Treads
Yes Ladies and Gentlemen….my neck has officially landed into tire-looking status. I swear, if my car got a flat tire I could use it as a spare.
Now that that joke is over let me tell you what’s going on:
1. My neck is ugly, swollen, discolored, dry, itchy, flaky and it oozes. The most oozing happens when I am laying in bed at night, so I have to lay on paper towels placed on my pillow. I won’t even tell you what I wake up to in the morning. Dear Jesus….
2. I tried saran wrapping it during the day when it was at it’s worse and I could hardly turn my head but that only did me justice for 2 weeks. Not only did it trap in moisture (which was what I wanted) but it also trapped in some weird stench which I did not want. I found out that it was better for me to let my neck air out, as uncomfortable as it is.
3. I had to switch from petroleum jelly to jojoba oil as a moisturizer which is helping. It looks extra greasy but it sinks in okay, feels really nice, is non irritating and it works.
And that is all I have to say about that. Peace & Love Warriors!
P.S. Just say NO to Topical Steroids!
