One itch and it was all over. I scratched.

My face was already warming up. I touched the scratch just after I unconsciously scratched.

So foolish! I was about to take a photo. This skin allergy keeps reminding me.

A plague for nine weeks. Go away!.

Someone remarks about my face.

"Why is it red?"

"Did something hit you?"

I reply like I've done before.

"No I just scratched."

Just a simple scratch and my skin became bumpy and inflamed.

Some people step back when I try to explain.

This is not contagious.This is not really well known. I don't know how to cure it. I ignited it by a scratch it will go away. Give twenty minutes.

I skip the photo. I can't take it when my face is red. The photo is important to me to show my skin allergy.

My burden is remarked again.

"It looks like you scratched a smiley face on your skin."

"Yeah it does look like a face!"

"Can I take a picture of it?"

I end up getting a photo of anyway while my scratch was still hot and visible. I don't mind, though.

This is a very interesting allergy. I get the photo of the scratched smiley face in the mail.

One scratch and it made me laugh.
