A Ringworm Remedy Among Other Things….

My girls and I got ringworm.  How's that for transparent?  Back in October we bought two kittens and they ended up giving us ringworm, or so I think.  Now, let's get one thing straight-ringworm is not actually caused by a worm.  It's a fungal rash very much like Athlete's foot and jock itch.  Awesome.  It's a round rash that is crazy hard to get rid of and very contagious.  First Heidi got a patch on her back.  Then I got a patch on my arm and next Sofie got one on her arm as well.  I knew it … [Read more...]

All-Natural Bug Repellent

A strong bug spray is an essential … [Read more...]
