This might turn into a venting type blog....yeah...I feel very venty. I am super excited that my meds are working...let me just start there. Without success in the chemo department I would be getting to enjoy weekly thoracenteses, and climbing CA-125s. So I am very thankful for successful chemo...however...my head looks like a pubescent teens face. This happened with other chemos, but I at least had a covering on my scalp so no one could see it. It was painful and hard to resolve, but only I knew that the head zits existed. Now I am bald...and instead of having a lovely round bald head...I have a slightly less lovely bald head covered in huge painful pimples.
I found a possible solution online. So now I am washing my head 3 times a day with Hibiclens. Covering my scalp with a Neutrogena salicylic acid treatment, and then using a cream to cover all the sores. I hope the internet was right and this will resolve in about a week. For now I am hiding out at home and keeping my head covered in clean cotton skull caps. Thank you Tonda for giving me like 60 of the caps. That means I can keep the nastiness on my head covered with a new clean cap with every washing. Keeping it covered also helps me keep my hands off my scalp. I am like a kid with chicken pox...my mom says the next step is oven mitts taped to my hands.
So that is all for today...I have been watching a ton of beauty guru videos on YouTube...and ordering make-up for my unblemished face. Have a great day friends!
