Hey, where y'all been at lately; I think there are some cruisers, including me, who miss you guys. Are you on a cruise together?

I'm here, too, sort of.

Thanks for asking. I've had this annoying rash caused by a synthetic substance.

Speaking of rashes....me too. I went to the dermatologist yesterday for a myriad of rash issues. Mine may be a reaction to a recent prescription (allopurinol for gout). He took a biopsy - a lovely experience which is akin to someone taking a surgical-edged melon baller and scooping out a chunk of your flesh. And of course I now have three new medications to use while waiting for the biopsy results. Doctors....gotta love'em. This dermo is an osteopath. Not to be confused with a psychopath.

NOW I'm ready for lunch or dinner; thanks, Dave. Actually, hope all scoops out well...

Mine's just this annoying little thing that started a few days ago.

Well, I don't want to make any Rash decisions here; but if your all going on the Cruise Chat Charity cruise, then I'm staying away from you.

Well, 2 out of 3 are accounted for.

Get better, you guys.

I don't think that gout is contagious or most rashes. They can be very painful. Hope all turns out well for both of you. The power of suggestion, I am starting to itch.

Dave- Did the Dr. say was a rash or hives?

I am confident this is a reaction to the new meds. It is a rash.

And as for gout....no, it isn't contagious. But if you ever get it, you are screwed. It will go away and then come back every so often, usually at a bad time. The pain is truly the worst thing any man has ever experienced unless he has been shot or stabbed. A woman told me it was the closest a man could come to the pain of natural childbirth without drugs.

Dave - my husband takes Allopurinol for his gout. Sorry to hear you're having a reaction, coz it's sure helping him. Try drinking cherry juice (real juice, not "juice drink"), and stay away from purines (cold cuts, hot dogs, processed meats). Good luck! I know what it's like living with someone going through a bout o'gout...
