Yesterday i had my long-awaited appointment with the dermatologist. He’s put me on really strong hydrocortisone(sp?) for 2 days, followed by a lower dose for a further 20 days. during that time i’ll be called up to dublin to get a patch test done. This means they will test areas of my skin for allergic reactions for 99% of all substances that call allergies. In the meantime, to keep me from scratching the affected area in my sleep, i’ve been put on piriton, an antihistamine. The consultant told me to take one every 45mins until i fell asleep. Amusingly, in the pharmacy, the chemist told me to be careful with the piriton as they “may cause drowsieness” ,-)
So, last night i ended up taking 2 piriton, and spent the rest of the night in a state not that dissimilar to being drunk. I think this pretty much sums it up: i had to hold onto the bed in order to stop myself from falling upwards. It was rather surreal.
