They should have given you acyclovir. It helps with the sores.

Oy. Poor Fleeb. And I thought my recent run in with Strep Throat was a bother. Are oatmeal baths still a thing?

Yep, acyclovir. Five a day.

I haven't tried the oatmeal bath, but yes, it would still have been a thing if I had tried it. Would have been quite nice.

Yes, oatmeal bath is still a thing, but it's not what it sounds like. You don't jump into a tub full of porridge. The most popular brand, by far, is Aveeno [ http://www.aveeno.com/product/aveeno-+soothing+bath+treatment+.do ]. It's basically a finely milled colloidal oat powder that gives the bath water a slightly milky texture and soothes all manner of skin irritation.

While oatmeal baths are fun, you need to bath in tar oil.

The oatmeal bath and tar oil bath are solutions for two different problems

Tar oil?

Gads.

I grew up in the south. You follow those up with feathers, as I recall.

Yeah, why don't they tar-and-feather anyone anymore? There are so many deserving targets...

Not enough people with chickenpox, I guess.

People are afraid of the bird flu?

There are people in New York City who are afraid of chickens.
