Christina Applegate says she’s “in relapse right now” amid her multiple sclerosis battle.

The 52-year-old “Dead to Me” actress revealed on her “MeSsy” podcast that the pain of the disease has made it difficult to tolerate bathing herself, so she’s slacking on her personal hygiene.

“I’m gonna be honest with you, I need to buy stock in Cottonelle because I haven’t taken a shower in three weeks,” Applegate told her co-host, Jamie-Lynn Sigler. “I can’t stand in my shower. There’s no f—king way.”

She added: “I have such a small bench and my ass is so huge these days that I can’t sit on it, it’s like I slip right off of it … So, I’ve been Cottonelle-ing my body.”

Applegate, who claims she only interacts with her daughter, Sadie, 12, said the experience of smelling “so bad” has been “awful” for everyone involved.

“Thank God I’m always alone so that no one smells me,” she said. “[Sadie’s] always like, ‘Oh Mama, that’s bad.’ I make her smell my armpits, just to make her vomit.”

The “Married … With Children” alum announced her MS diagnosis in 2021 and subsequently hinted that she may never return to acting because of it.

She provided fans an update on her battle Tuesday, saying she’s currently experiencing “intense pain” and that her “legs are just done” as she feels like she’ll fall just walking to the bathroom.

Additionally, Applegate said the exhausting battle has left her with “no energy” and the only thing she can do is “lay in a dark room, watching TV and wanting it all to go away.”

“Insane tingling that just has spurts of tingles that are weird coming from, like, my butt down,” she explained. “I haven’t slept for 24 hours because my eye is doing something weird where every time I close my eye to go to sleep my right eye starts to shift.

“[I] definitely am going to have to go in and see someone because it’s a little scary and freaking me out that my eye is going to burst out of my face or something,” she added. “I’m a little concerned about that, and my legs have never been this bad, so I don’t know what’s going on.”
