You see I suffer from eczema and a week ago a ran out of my Betnotave cream. I need to book an appointment with my GP before I can have another repeat prescription. So for the last week all I have been using, as a substitute is a aftersun cream.

Relived it’s nothing serious. Never thought for a minute that aftersun cream would stain your hands a yellow / brown colour.

Thank God for the NHS. Although I did feel a bit embarrassed.

I'm imressed with the NHS Helpline.

"My skin has turned yellow"

"Don't worry Sir, that'll be aftersun cream."
It was raining when we drove up the two-lane highway through the long tunnel of trees that led into the black district on the south end of St. Martinville.

The NHS were very helpful to be honest. I rang the number someone provide me with on here and i left my details with a nice girl. A couple of hours later i receive a call at home from a NHS nurse.

"She asks me if my eyes are yellow?"
I reply no.
She then asks me to "breath deeply in and out".
Which i did.
Then she asks me "to look for a rash or swelling on my hands".
Again i did this and i found nothing.
Then she asked me "if i use hand cream?"
I replied yes , 'Betnovate', as i suffer from Eczema.
She asked "when was the last time you applied Betnovate?"
I said well over a week ago because i have run out and need to visit my GP for a repeat prescription.
So then she says. "What have you been using as a replacement for your Betnovate?"
Then it bloody clicked!
I said, all i could find in the house was a bottle of after-sun lotion. I've been using this to lubricate my hands.
"She said do your hands smell?"
Yes i say. Reminds me of being on holiday.

And there you have it.
Good job she had a sense of humour!

Christ!

Might give that woman at the NHS helpdesk another call when i get home.

“Sword here again”
“I’ve got problems with my manhood”.
“Can you help?”

Well lets face it. Saves time and embarrassment at my doctors.
Could also lead to a releationship over the phone.

Don't forget to tell her your head's caved in. That could be the clincher.

I'll save you the phone call, this may result in your skin turning a pinkish/red colour.

Was it the type of self-browning sun cream? In France these are popular. Intended to be applied on the face. I was so foolish to try it out of fun a long long time ago. Next day I woke up, I looked at a ghastly yellowish facial skin. Horrible.
Cap, you are a medical wonder. You belong in the classics thread. For regular inspection and communal delight.
