More Medicine & an E-Collar!!!!

Well, Dr. K still wasn't back from his vacation so I saw Dr. P today. We can't seem to figure out what is wrong with me. I'm losing hair and getting "pimples" that make me scratch and "gnaw" on parts of my body. When we got to Dr. K's office Ryan (my favorite tech) said he like'd Mom's answering machine message and we all laughed about it. Then it was down to work. Skin scrapings showed that I didn't have mange, the Woods Lamp showed I don't have ringworm. (Mom suspected both of these anyway). Staining some of the goo from a pimple showed that I didn't have an infection in my blood. Needless to say we are stumped!!! The thought is that staph infection on my skin is coming back and that I might be allegic to something. Ryan shaved my sores and cleaned me up and then Mom got my medicine and a funny looking thing that she called an E-collar. I'm going to be on antibiotics, steroids, and antihistamines for a while and I have to wear this E-collar thing when Mom can't watch me. I HATE THE E-COLLAR!!!!!! I'm hoping this is the worst of things, but for some reason I don't think it is. I heard something about a bath twice a week, but I'm hoping that isn't true.
