Two days into the pills and believe it or not, the itching is nearly gone! I just seem to need the prescription cream at night. I still look awful, but I feel much better.
Thank you all for your sympathy and well wishes! I hate to whine, but never having been allergic to this before, it really hit me bad. Lone, I think I may move to Norway so I don't ever have to have this again! Stacy, stay far away if you see any, LOL! A neighbor told us of a spray call "Round-up" that he says kills this plant to the roots--I'm sure it will be on my shopping list the next time I am out.
Thanks, too, for the kind comments on my orange lilies. By tomorrow or Friday the latest, I should have a new cuff bracelet to show off--the second one has already sold so I may be onto something here.
