Fresh Hell

Oh what fresh hell is this? I've read that people can get psoriasis on their nether regions, but I hoped it would never happen to me! I know something that might help with the itching.
This doesn't help at all! Yeah, tell me about it.
Hey, get out of there!
That's not psoriasis. Those are ant bites on your butt. Hmm, now that you mention it, I might have sat on an ant hill when I was working in the garden.
Sheesh. Humans. They'll complain about anything. Yeah, I agree. By the way, do your paws itch?

When I was diagnosed with psoriasis, I never thought of all the places it could show up. Finding out psoriasis can hide where no one can see seemed like a particularly awful fate. Thank heavens this was only a run in with some angry ants.

If you wanted someone to bite your butt, you should have let me know.

I already bite your underwear.


Are you looking for a unique and personal gift for someone? Then consider a hand painted handkerchief! With summer allergies and sniffly viruses abounding, a reusable cotton hankie could save hundreds of paper tissues over its lifetime.

A variety of hand painted hankies are available from my shop at L Bowman Studios.


  1. Scratching your butt in public is only acceptable if you’re a dog. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m sorry you’re dealing with this, but since it was only ants, you can use some cortisone cream and get relief. And I hope you feel better tomorrow!

  2. Both sound awful! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    Glad this was just ants…which is bad enough. Ack on ant bites! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Summer is always ripe with bite-y bugs! UGHS!
    ๐Ÿœ๐Ÿ•ท๐Ÿชฒ๐Ÿ๐ŸฆŸ๐Ÿชฐ ETC! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Hope you find relief soon!

    PS…The brilliant dog-neck-cone idea for Human-Beans made me snort-laugh! ๐Ÿ˜€
    When Coop needed one he couldn’t wear one…he is so short to the ground it kept hitting the ground/dragging the ground and was so uncomfortable for him and his little neck…so we bought him a beautiful blue inflatable dog collar, which was wonderful in every way. And he looked like he had joined the Navy! Ha! We sang “In the Navy” to him! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜›

  3. Oh poor you!!!!! NOT fun!!! For years I’ve believed I was pure bug bait … turns out I’m allergic to a common weed … wild morning glories! And we have a section in the garden where it’s being very stubborn and which I had been diligently yanking up!! That was the cause of much itching … so much so a year ago I had to go on prednisone and an antibiotic as it turned into cellulitis. Then I got allergic to the antibiotic as the prednisone stepped down. What a mess. Summer … it’s not all it’s cracked up to be!!! Hope you’re feeling better soon!!!

  4. Nox knows ants taste like ow. When she was a puppy, she tried to lick ants from the patio and found that they would bite. I hope the ant bites are better soon. I loved the cone of shame drawing!
