Fun nurses notes.

Sometimes I get funny little notes from the nurses telling me the interesting requests patients sometimes have.

Here is today's:
"Pt. is requesting special shampoo for dry scalp. Pt. states selenium sulfide does not work. Pt. states he had another shampoo on another admit in a small white bottle with 1% on bottle. The shampoo was orange. Pharmacy did not know what it was. Pt. states smells like eggs."

So now I'm scratching my head trying to figure out what orange shampoo smells like eggs....

Derm consult here. Probably a Salicylic Acid/Sulfur Shampoo. That or Tar. Tar is brown though. I don't know what color the sulfur one is, but it definitely smells like eggs.
