I am very slow to type today and the next few days....so I will keep this short and will have to answer questions in a few days, along with responding to all the new blog posts out there....so many good ones recently too!
You see I have my hands wrapped in socks so typing is very difficult at the moment. My hands have been bad for months due to going back to work. Every other part of my body has been up and down with the micro flares but the hands are just not catching a break. So off I went to my ND....great guy! He gave me a script for keflex, but holding off on starting that at the moment since antibiotics do a number on my gut. He and I both agreed I have a secondary infection going on with my hands. So he gave me Bactroban ointment along with an herbal anti-microbial/anti-fungal. It has goldenseal and a few Chinese herbs in it. I open a few of those capsules and mix with the Bactroban and form a weird smelling paste. I then apply to my hands and put socks on. I've done it only at night the last 2 nights and so far so good. Worked this weekend so hands are up and down....overall I'd say they are better, but going to do this for a week and see what happens. If they don't start getting a lot better then I will take the keflex. On my days off I will re-apply in the mornings and keep socks on all day. Hence why typing is hard...socks really keep me from doing a lot of things easily!!!
So off I go doing not much today! :p
