Over the past few months, I’ve been dogged by eczema on the palms of my hands. It started out like a small patch of hard skin, first on my left hand and then on the right. And that’s what I thought it was – from digging so much at the allotment from December to June last year.
Then it escalated to covering just about all the surface area… The final straw came this last weekend when it spread to my fingers, so after a trip to the doctor’s on Monday I am now on some horrendous antibiotics, which basically means I can’t eat. Oh dear!
But why am I blogging about all this?
Well, the pain was putting me off doing anything, including my beloved gardening. Fortunately, that seems to be abating, what with the antibiotics and steroid creams as well as a super-duper moisturising cream. So, hopefully, I will soon be back on course to sow, plant and tidy up.
In the meantime, the tomatoes I posted about at the weekend are getting bigger 🙂
