    First?

    Of what?

    The 3rd week of December? :wink:

    More seriously, it could be a combination of the cold we've been experiencing over the past week. That, and the central heating I've had blasting out, have made my skin very dry and itchy.

    A rash on your extremities, do you recall coming into contact with anything specific that could have caused an allergic reaction?

    Maybe you've turned allergic to the goodies your company puts in pastries -
    Or did you start using fabric softener? Lots of folks have problems with that stuff.

    Since it's all over you, you either have an infection or some kind of allergic reaction.

    Is the rash dry or oozing? Any other symptoms? Swelling in glands in your neck?

    The rash is like tiny blisters that bleed if scraped, i have no other symptoms, but i have such a huge immune system i doubt if any bug army will ever get me.

    Sounds to me like a case of extra-terrestrial posession. Your body is having a normal reaction to the take over by the symbiant.:surprised

    I hope they find out what it is, or better that it just disappears on it's own.

    How does one measure the "size" of one's immune system? Does it hang off your side like a tumor? Or does your lymph system have vessels made of ABS piping?

    You obviously don't know Wolram. :wink:

    If he can get his foot stuck in his boot, he can surely have a huge immune system. :smile:

    Not that I know of. :redface: I'm still covered with them, damn they take a long time to heal.

    Wolram, do they itch or hurt?
