So far the major side effects are a swollen breast and a "sunburned" armpit. Aspirin relieves the inflamation and swelling. Aquaphor and topical vitamin E help, but it's exceedingly annoying having a sunburned armpit! A combination of pain and itching is only relieved somewhat. Ah, well, I have two days to heal over the weekend!

There are other annoyances, such as #1 son coming home from work and waking me from my nap to tell me he won't be here for supper. Luckily that doesn't happen very often. He did have a bemused expression on his face at trying to imagine how one can get a sunburned armpit<G>.

Only 13 more "Zaps" to go! I expect the "sunburn" will get worse over the next three weeks<sigh>, but I'm using the vitamin E as a preventative every night now.
