Last Friday, I was given the opportunity to experience the fun joy that is rodent control testing. I was tested for grass, mold, trees, cats, dogs, cockroaches and dust mites. I didn’t react to the grass testing – so I’m not allergic to grass. I am allergic to everything else, with allergies that are strongest to trees and molds. Especially Elm and one of the Maple trees. I was stuck with serum a total of 39 times on my left arm and 28 times on my right, for a grand total of 67 pin pricks of serum.
Days later, my left arm still itches. Bad. I want to scratch it all the time. At work yesterday, it took all the energy I had to think about something other than scratching it – even while I was knee deep in a project that took a lot of focus, I still wanted to stop and scratch my arm. I’m using Benadryl ointment constantly and taking Allegra, and it still itches.
The creepy part? The one that is still red and inflammed is the cockroach test! Ewww! Seems that they shed their exoskeleton and people are allergic to it. Good thing my apartment is roach free thanks to my Pest Control Company! There are quite a few wildlife removal companies in Cary, North Carolina.

Now if only I would stop itching.
