Finally I can get some relief...
You may have read my lament a few weeks ago about all of the things going wrong in my life. One of which was a yucky, itchy eczema type rash all over my torso and down my legs. I saw a naturopathic doctor today. She is amazing! She knew exactly (once the labs come back she will know for sure) what's going on with me. I am having an autoimmune reaction to a severe vitamin D deficiency. (One of the joys of living in the NW is we don't get much sun and Vitamin D deficiency is common) She put me on probiotics and a heckofa lot of vit D. She also called in a cream to a compounding pharmacy that should heal the skin from the outside. Hopefully in a few days the nasty rash will be on it's way out the door, never to return again.
