mites & scabies & bedbugs... oh my!

Makes you itch just reading that huh? Yeah its pretty delicious.

A few weeks back Mr. Man and I went to an Alice & Chains concert. To save some money we stayed at a "budget" motel. Well, fast forward 2 weeks, and we've both got itchey, scratchey, heebie jeeby gross mites. Although the medication is also used for scabies. GROSS!!

Not only have we been plagued by coughing, sinis infections, phlegm and mucus... but now this.

I mean... really? What. The. Fuck.

So now after 3 weeks of sick, we get this. Luckily Mr. Man went to the Dr. for his cough and mentioned he'd been itchy. I too had been itchy but didn't think too much of it besides possible allergies or something. Turns out our budget motel set upon us a pestilence of mites, only to be cured by a prescription all over body cream, washing all the bedding in hot water (great for great-grandma's wool quilt) and vacuuming up a storm.

Fun times.

I hope you have a better start to the week than we did...

McGrid, Been there! That's kinda what happened to me when I had the skin infection after the surgery...I had the itchy stuff and the all over cream thing going on and they might as well put a Quarentines sign out front in my lawn. I feel your pain...I'm sorry and I hope you feel better soon. The paranoia of getting your place clean enough will subside soon...once the itching goes away and doesn't come back!
