Sorry about the gruesome physical details (reminiscent of my ingrown toenail post last fall — apologies, I suppose, for that one, too). I will definitely keep this addition to the blog brief. The picture(s) — I donʼt know just how many I am going to attempt,* as none so far do the issue justice — say(s) it all.
Somehow, some time over the weekend (actually Friday or Saturday), while on the job checking firewood at campgrounds and reaching out about the emerald ash borer to the camping public (and while also taking down to check for bugs about a dozen of my traps, located at said campgrounds, in Dubuque, Jackson and Clinton Counties) I got a… — rash? Infection? Exposure to poison ivy/oak?
As the outbreak on my left arm hasnʼt subsided at all since I noticed it on Sunday, I would sure appreciate anyoneʼs suggestions (of what it might be, of what I could do about it).
It itches and hurts. Janet believes that the number of possibly pussy bumps** may have increased by a few. Cortaid is all we have tried on it so far (the salve does make it cease itching for a while).
Any ideas? Think I need to visit our doctor?
Your suggestions would, as of the time of this writing (Tuesday, early evening), be greatly appreciated. Since I am scheduling the post for Thursday, however, I hope they will all also be too late. Time will, sadly, tell…

** Her opinion. Not mine. (And apologies yet again for that bit of further — but “tastefully” not boldfaced and italicized, however — gruesome detail, to which this footnote is an appendage, too.)
