Today, I woke up to a red, raised, extremely itchy rash covering my whole body, face included. I have an 18-hour bus ride to look forward to this afternoon. FML

On the plus side, nobody will be able to tell how embarrassed you are.

You really should go see a doctor about that. Or at least take some benadryl/diphenhydramine

If it only had been an 18 hour car journey instead, then it wouldn’t have been a problem.

Hey, at least you’ll have a conversation starter with the person sitting next to you on the bus. I’ll bet you are going to end up getting the whole row to yourself. Win!

Bathe yourself in coconut oil, that should sooth things out.

Look out everyone it's the Devil

Did you figure out what it was?

I hope you went to get the rash checked out before hopping onto the bus because (1) If it is an allergic reaction, it should be treated immediately since it can get worse and/or (2) It could be something else that is contagious, and by hopping onto the bus, you made sure everyone else on it (or at least close to you) also caught whatever you have.

You have my deepest sympathies!! I was in this same situation! I was taking a bus up to see my long distance boyfriend of 3 1/2 years. It was gonna be a 12 hr ride. When I woke up the morning I was supposed to leave, my face was so swollen I could hardly see. I couldn't stand all the weird looks. I was so embarrassed when I finally saw my boyfriend. Turns out, it was cellulitis and could I have died from it, due to how close it was to my eyes and brain. Luckily I was able to get antibiotics and treatment and it cleared right up. Make sure you get that rash checked out asap to make sure it isn't anything serious lol

So you woke up with a potentially contagious rash, and decided that- instead of going to see a doctor- you would expose thousands of people to a possible bacterial or viral infection? Lovely way to start a pandemic, that.
