Thought of the Day - Itchy and Scratchy
Chiggers....nasty little bugs, harvest mites actually.. Got into some recently as evidenced by a wealth of irritating little itchy bumps.
Cortisone really helps control the maddening itching...then I wondered, what is cortisone. Turns out it's derivation of cholesterol and suppresses your immune system. Why that blocks itching and why suppressing your immune system is a good thing is beyond me...but I'll take the benefit.
