Poor Matilda has a little rash on her face, probably caused by red pen ink. OH, NOES! I don't know how it happened, but I've taken to checking my hands for obvious ink or print rub-offs before I pick up my dolls. I don't usually grab the girls by their faces, though, so this one is still a tiny bit of a mystery. I'm keeping my eye out for suspicious characters with markers and ballpoints.
Luckily for my darling Matilda, I have some vinyl dolly medical knowledge, and from the bathroom cabinet I produced some Magical Salve (ie, 10% benzoyle peroxide cream), and thus today she is in treatment:
As you can see, we tried to tame her hair with her nightcap, but to little avail; strands escaped despite my best efforts. I didn't want to spritz her hair for fear I'd hit her face and set the "rash" in even more.
I initially put the cream on her last night, then checked this morning, and the marks had faded noticeably, but of course not enough. I expect it to take two or three more treatments before it's gone.
