So I have been a major cranky-puss lately. I had a bad case of diaper rash and Mommy has been nursing me back to health. The last few days my diaper rash has changed and mutated. My tush is nearly raw looking. The skin irritations are round and scaly like patches of eczema. Mommy called the doctor yesterday to make a “just in case” appointment. By last night my entire back was covered in a rash as well. So off we went to the doctor today. I have been diagnosed with “Nummular Eczema”. It is basically a term for coin shaped eczema patches. I have a pretty severe case right now. Mommy has to lube me down with cortisone a few times a day. Apparently it is probably hereditary, so Mommy is feeling really bad that she passed this on to me (Mommy has bad Psoriasis).
We are going to have to go through things in the house and look at what causes my irritation. Most of it is probably heat related, as we have been at the playground a lot lately. Darn Florida summers. So Mommy has to make sure all my laundry gets washed special for a while. I get extra long cool baths at night. I get slathered in all sorts of creams and ointments each day! YEAH ME!
Maybe once this is under control I can sleep better???
ALSO… the “tooth” that is NOT a tooth in my mouth! While we were at the doctor today Mommy asked about this “thing that looks like a point of my molar coming through!” It is what is called a “Bohn’s Nodule”. It will so away in my early life. I may get more, but probably not.
So today was a FUN day for me. I am napping on my tummy now and sleeping better. Mommy put me on my back to go to bed tonight and I flipped right over and fell asleep on my tum-tum. She came back in to check on me about 20 minutes later and I was desperately trying to hold my head up while my eyes were shut. Mommy flipped my shoulders around so I am mostly on my tummy. I hopefully will get more than a few hours of sleep tonight. I am tired of being tired and cranky.
