    Had a mild case when I was young and now I'm getting the full brunt :hs:. So I figured I would post a thread asking what photography/video/editing sites you have bookmarked that you might want to share to keep me from taking a potato peeler to my skin. Boredom has set in...

    -Blogs
    -Tutorials
    -Videos
    -How-tos
    -eZines
    -etc

    Any help would be great :hsd:

    28. And really, what's worse is the fact that I am forced to miss 10 days of work. I love my work and get paid hourly. FTMFL Thanks anyway :hs:

    Thanks man. Yeah I hate the fact that I can't shave or brush my hair really. I look like Edward James Olmos cross-breed with Gerard Depardieu. :Ownedd:

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone. Between Benedryl-induced comas and oatmeal baths I'll be reading. :hsd:

    You should cover yourself in calamine lotion, too. That's what my parents did to me when I had chicken pox

    They're actually not too bad where I think I need it and the Bendryl is helping. Also, is it okay to put it on open sores?

    BTW WTFOTAPthread. OTAP > OT

    It appears that way :dunno:

    Also, since you say you've had chicken pox before, are you sure this isn't shingles? :o

    I've heard the same.. Painful blistering rash.. But it's caused by the dormant chicken pox virus that's still in the body once getting chicken pox the first time.. You usually don't get chicken pox twice; you usually wind up with shingles the second time around

    Nope, it's the pox, which I guess is a good thing.

    Get a macro lens and make artsy shots out of the pox.

    if you got them when you were a kid, you should be immune to them
