shave it, wax it, pluck it or leave it?
I have a hairy finger.
Like a man.
Or a monkey.
Let’s back up a bit, shall we?
Last spring, I developed a gross, itchy, swollen, dry excema patch on my left hand ring finger.
Of all the places to have it – how about the one finger that I want to wear a ring on every single day.
So, I finally went to the doctor about it when it was bleeding and still itchy and hurting and bleeding and awful.
The doctor diagnosed it as excema (which I had already done, thanks to Dr. Google and Nurse Wikipedia.
He also prescribed a steroid cream.
Which happens to be more of a gel than a cream.
After many days of mostly-daily application of the steroid cream/gel, I feel like I have developed some extra hairs on this particular finger.
What do they put in that stuff?
