I put off going to the ER for a couple of days, but by Friday, the pain was bad enough that I went. The doctor took one look at my legs and said I am fighting some type of infection, and put me on antibiotics. He said if that blister up there was a little more "well formed" they would have cut it.
Um, no thanks.
After three doses of the antibiotic, I woke up this morning with a nasty rash on my upper legs. I called my mom again, thinking I was having an allergic reaction to the antibiotics, since I am allergic to penicillin. She said I needed to go back to the ER, so that's what I did.
Turns out, I have a pretty bad yeast infection. I thought you only got those on your girly parts, but the doctor said you could get them anywhere. He said it could be from the antibiotics or that my body is simply fighting the other infection so hard that I will pick up every other little thing. Fun, right?
So he gave me a prescription cream and another type of pill, so now I am on three different medicines. He also suggested I take benedryl, which if you know me at all, you know how bad an idea that is. I do not do well on medicines that cause drowsiness, so my mom gave me some children's benedryl, and I took a 1/4 tsp, and at this moment, I am fighting to stay awake.
I just hope that by the end of this week everything is cleared up and I am back to normal.
