Doctor, doctor, give me the news

I had a doctor's appointment this morning. I've had a rash-like thingy on my shin for about 6 weeks now with no signs of going away. The area is red, dry and flaky. It itches like the devil every other day or so, but otherwise isn't painful.

It takes something persistent or particularly painful to get me to go to the doctor. I figure 6 weeks of unsightly itchiness qualifies.

I swear, doctor offices always make you wait forever and then when they finally get to YOU, it's a 2 minute meeting tops. Though, I did get an apology that the office was running behind. I also had reconfirmed to me I have excellent blood pressure. Considering I'm a plus-sized girl, I'm thinking yay me!

I show the doc my rash thingy and he decides in seemingly a split second to give me a prescription for a steroid cream. I asked him what it was, the rash I mean. He said he didn't know but he was working on the assumption that it was allergy-induced. And if the cream didn't work in a week to give him a call.

Alrighty then. I must be the kind of patient on which doctors catch up on their schedules. I suppose it's just as well. I think my parents get quality time, but they have diabetes and hernia issues. I think I'd rather feel like just a number than to have a doc decide I needed quality time.
