I've got an ear infection in my right ear. After putting in antibiotic drops for the last 4 days, the crud is starting to break up. It looks like dried boogers coming out.

I had a massage today. I realized that I have not shaved my legs in...who knows...ewww...
This post inspired me to weedwhack errr shave my legs  ;D

Do not weedwhack your legs. I did that to my foot/ankle a couple years ago, and am impressed I didn't end up with scars.

Yup, and my husband likes to watch it.   :-[ 

I can handle most types of surgeries I see.  I have my occupational first aid and can handle all kinds of blood or bodily fluid things.  When the kids are sick and stuff is flying out of them from either end, it's me who's in the trenches.  My husband?  Nowhere to be found.

But Dr. Pimple Popper makes my stomach queasy.  Weird, huh?

This could also fall under the stupid questions thread, but as it's a bit gross I'm putting it here...

Lately I've begun getting these odd...things in my pores. On the surface they look like blackheads that just haven't had a chance to get all grimy yet, but I can't squeeze them out - I have to go in with something pointy (I have a double-ended blackhead extractor with interchangeable pointy ends) and scoop them out from underneath, and when they come out they're quite hard, whitish and resemble nothing so much as tiny rocks. They also have a bit of an unpleasant smell to them and leave my pores quite stretched out once I've got them out. What exactly are they?

They sound like milia. I get them on my forehead and eyelids occasionally. It's usually from keratin buildup. People with autoimmune disorders are prone to get them, though anybody can. They are most common in newborns.

Yep, that looks about like what I've got. Thanks Dazi, I suspected it was something simple like that but I didn't know where to start looking. :) I'll have to make sure to clean my nose a little better I think - it's been getting rather flaky!

You're quite welcome! They aren't so bad when you get a few here and there on your face. However, they are NOT pleasant at all if you get them on *other* body areas.

Having had things that are easily squeezable on other body areas, I cringe at the thought. ;D

I had those until I started giving myself a facial every two weeks with 10 percent salicylic acid dissolved in 91 percent alcohol. I run for five minutes and then neutralize with baking soda. I moisturize a few minute later with Jason vitamin e oil.  After three months i don't have them anymore.

I"ve been waiting for DF's giant pore to fill up again, but all that's happened it a little bit of residual bloody/pussy stuff. He's been on a couple of pretty strong antibiotics, so I think those cleared it up before I could have more fun. He does have another one, though, I need to mess around with a bit. They will be more impressive, if I can get them to come up. I WILL be prepared this time.

I watch them while eating, as well. I love the black head ones, that when they pop out, they leave a hole. Also, I get mad when the Dr. pops one, but doesn't get all the stuff out. It's just going to come back if you don't get the rest out, jeeze!

A few days ago I got bitten on the base of my right middle finger, then that same spot got splattered with grease while making dinner. There's now this disgusting thick scab in place. It doesn't hurt, but it itches. A lot.

I weedwhack in boots. I don't care if it's hot outside. I always wear boots and pants.
I've been more diligent in shaving these last few weeks so it's not as bad.

I rolled my ankle Tuesday, it's swollen and purple.

DH felt left out (jk) and dropped a concrete chunk on his toe, which looks broken.

The truly gross thing? I opened the dryer to put my towels in, and there was a large cut toenail in there.

I have a gigantic zit on my shoulder.

No, let me rephrase that. I had a gigantic zit. It's turned into a large purple blood blister filled with grey, smelly pus.

I hate these sort of zits. >:(

We took Chipmunchkin to a local faire on Sunday. It was her first experience with faire food and she had a blast.

That night, during bedtime routine, she got sick. All over me.

The smell of partially digested turkey, potato skins, and toddler formula mixed together is a uniquely revolting one, and it feels fantastic to have the liquid seep through one's clothing to the skin.

She is now much better- took her in to the pediatrician, tested negative for flu, rsv, ear infections, and strep. Just seems to be a combo of having a cold and something not agreeing with her tummy.
