1/18/12 01:13 am - Health alert, hugs
drcpunk was diagnosed with scabies after Arisia this past weekend. Scabies has something like a 1 month incubation period.
Scabies spreads through skin to skin contact. You know, like hugs.
This means that if you got hugged by me or Lisa at Arisia, or GaFilk, or any of the holiday parties we attended, you probably want to go through the (not painful; yay, but annoyingly thorough) anti-scabbies treatment.
Talk to your doctor, and stay safe (and non-itchy/contagous).
