Sep 5, 2006 - 11:51 AM...a/k/a "The Michelin Man." For the past several months, I've been plagued by delayed pressure urticaria, a form of hives. At first, it was just a minor nuisance, a few skin bumps which appeared at night, and disappeared by morning. The dermatologist gave me a series of anti-histamines, but nothing worked, and now the bumps have bumps... and I look a bit like Bibendum. The bad news is that my eyes are swollen nearly shut, so I have to see an allergist, hopefully sometime today. Blog postings may be somewhat spotty during the next few days, so please bear with me.
