On Saturday, after my long run (12 miles! eee!), I noticed that I had a weird patch of bumps in my armpit region. Chalking it up to sports bra irritation I ignored it but by Sunday the bumps had gotten worse and were a combination of itchy and burny. Thankfully, I just happened to have a dermatologist appointment this morning so I had him take a look because an itchy and burny armpit does not make for a happy me. Turns out I have infected hair follicles (fucking gross) and am now on medicine to clear it up.
The downside to this? I am not allowed to shave my armpits for at least two weeks, possibly more if the antibiotics don't work. Folks, in two weeks time it's going to look like hamsters have taken up residence in my armpits. People will assume I live in Berkeley. Can deodorant penetrate a layer of hair to reach skin or am I going to be stinky? Is men's deodorant make to soak through a layer of hair? Should I borrow jparks'? The family that deodorizes together stays together, right?
(yeah, seriously that's my blog post for today. I got nothing else. Sorry)
((No offense if you have hairy armpits. It's just not the look for me))
