I was working in ym yard fri and 4 of us got poison ivy. Never had it before. Never want it again! Anyway, I broke out in a rash 2 days after I was infected. Ended up in ER. Sent home w/ calamine and benedryl. Monday it spread to my face. Was starte on predisone Tuesday. This is fri. I had bad side effects so only took 2 of the 3 pills a day. 60 MG total. Like I said it's friday it got a bit better yesterday. Today it has spread again and it's back on my face. (Worse) Dr is not being very helpful. Has anyone else had it like this? Have u ever taken predisone? What works? Tried, sulfer water, baking soda, anti itch medicine, etc. One on my arm is better but I look like a burn victim.
