|Can you see the spot?|
I wondered what I had done to cause the problem. Friday had been an active outdoor day. Hubby Tony and I had visited a museum, spent time at a festival, and did a lot of walking. During the course of the day I remember sitting on the grass a couple of times and leaning up against several trees. That night we took in a fireworks display, where I sat on a sidewalk curb. Each time I sat down (or leaned) I suspect I would have rested my hands on the ground (or tree), so I could understand the hand welt, but the other affected body parts would have been covered by my shorts and wouldn't have come into contact with anything.
I kept the areas covered with hydrocortisone cream and took antihistimine allergy pills on a regular basis. My hand didn't cause me any problems, but all day long it was annoying to sit down. When I did I tried to slouch, which kept pressure off the affected areas. I'm sure my poor posture looked lovely at the restaurant where we ate dinner, but I didn't particularly care.
This morning the areas still looked red, but the itching and burning were gone. By dinner time the problem had resolved itself. Hopefully never to return.
