VANITY! Thy name is "big nasty rash"

My mom took me to a spa for a facial in celebration of passing one of the three tests I took yesterday (the results for the rest haven't come out yet).

Now I have a nasty rash all over my face and neck! Im all red and splotchy and it itches so f*ing bad! My mom is fine...she goes to that spa all the time and apparently I'm the only one who had an allergic reaction to whatever crap they used. I have to call in sick tomorrow at work so I can go to the f*ing spa and complain, then drag my butt over to the doctor to get something for my face.

GAD!

I've got some cream from the doctor to slather on my face and even though it's still kinda red at least it doesn't itch like the devil anymore. They said that I was allergic to the "soothing cream" (ironic right?) and it was made worse by the fact that they put it on my face right after they scrubbed it with exfoliant and a mild chemical peel. Lovely!

Oh no! I hope you're okay now. What did they say when you confronted them about it?

Contrats on passing the test but I would have considered the facial a punishment, not a reward. I’ve had one and I couldn’t wait until it was over. A few years ago I won an all-expense paid trip to Vegas. Stayed at the Paris. Full spa treatment with facial included. By the end of the facial I felt like I my face had been pulverized. No, thanks.

Allergic to the soothing cream. Ha! That's classic!
