I'm terrible at not-scratching. The thing is: scratching an itch is just so satisfying. Then once I start, it itches more, so I scratch more, and it snowballs from there. The story ends with blood and tears. Well, not usually tears.
I'm trying to at least keep from scratching my face. Bad enough having red dots of my face, let alone bloody red bumps. Eeeew, I know. I've been doing pretty well so far. I haven't scratched the top off of any bite on my face, and I've kept from doing too much damage on the rest of me.
What a bother. I wonder what the Flemmish word for bug spray is?
