Just a quick post, to show you how my hands look right now. Well, it is actually how they looked at about 11 AM today, which is when these pictures were taken.
Thankfully, the infection and it’s effects are gone. During the last three weeks in the village, I di not experience any infections, sicknesses, or injuries of any kind. Even the bug bites were much less, since we are still enjoying dry season.
As you can see, the fingertips are dry and chapped, due to the allergies, but this is normal, and a manageable condition which does not prevent normal, daily activities. Last week, the fingers actually looked and felt even better than currently, which lines up with research that says allergies and their effects can increase or diminish from day to day, back and forth. Hoping and praying that the allergies and their effects will disappear, I am using some supplements and natural remedies to improve my general health and support specific areas which may help my allergies.
During our next trip to the city, at the end of November, I plan to see the dermatologist for a follow-up appointment, to make sure everything is as it should be. In the meantime, I am thankful to God for answered prayer in this matter, and for His continued protection and guidance in all of life, it’s problems and questions.
