The Itchy and Scratchy Show


eeeew. My itching was becoming too much to bear, so as a precaution I went to the doctor this morning and although I am not showing any rashes yet, he thinks I have scabies.  I probably picked it up in the guesthouse in Mcleodganj (don’t ever use a blanket provided I guess, no matter how cold you are.) When I think about it, it is rather amazing that nothing like this has happened to me in the past 11 months of travel, especially given some of the dodgy flophouses I have stayed in from time to time.

Fortunately, he gave me a treatment and all should be cleared up in a short while. I now have the unenviable task of returning to my wonderful hosts and telling them we need to boil all my clothes and sheets. Sigh.
