Poor Mr. Peeveme

Poor little Piccolina has an awful rash on her face. She had it last week and it was getting better but now it has come back with a vengeance. She does not seem bothered by it too much and has no other symptoms.

Mr. Peeveme is very anti-intervention and anti-anything "chemical". I have been asking him to let me put some either hydrocortison cream (to fight inflammation) or Lotrimin (to fight fungal infection) on her poor little face but he insisted we keep applying lotion. And he wont let me use the lotion the Dr recommended for when she had baby eczema...no he has to buy some organic lotion...which doesn't do shit for her really dry, red, cracked skin. Hand cream ain't going to cut it even if it does smell like grapefruit essence.

Anyhow, last night I was, yet again, making my case for hydrcortison or Lotrimin. He thought it was too chemically to put so near her month. I reminded him that he used it on his genitals when he had that little itching problem last year.


And in a tone of voice that I can only describe as pitiful resignation he said, "Yea well nobody's mouth has been near there in a long time".

*snort* Poor Mr. Peeveme, indeed. Since our little "bleeding after bliss" episode, I've put a stop to, er, conjugal relations for the time being. Maybe Mr. Peeveme & The Boy should get together to commiserate!

That is great! Poor guy. I hope he comes around and lets you medicate your other poor baby.

hahahahaha - that is fabulous. I think our men should join their own blogging support group on what IF and treatments have done to their sex lives...

Sorry to hear your little on isn't feeling so hot. Hopefully you can find a compromise

It must be fellatio week - this is the third post/comment I've seen on this topic!

Poor Mr. Peeveme - maybe he's trying to inspire you before the long dry spell that he knows is coming.

I hope Piccolina's face is better soon.

Poor Mr. P!

Re: the rash - if it gets worse, the solution might have to be much stronger steroids. I had to do ten days of prednisone once because of contact dermatitis that spread. So much better to use a tiny dab of hydrocortisone on a q-tip and see if it helps.

Otherwise, maybe aloe vera straight from the plant?

Too funny! I as talking to my acu a bit ago - who is VERY in to the organic, natural whatever and she said, "Sometimes you really want it to work, but it just doesn't"

Congrats on the job!
