My bout with this started July 2nd, and after 2 inadequate dosages of steroids, am finally on the second last day of the 14 day course. That and the Zanfel did the trick, but the redness comes and goes; it fades then reappears. I don't remember this happening in the past; I suspect it became systemic and will take awhile - no more itching though. Anyone have experience with this?
Secondly, I never developed blisters (kept applying things to keep it dry) but it looks like I might have scarring. I suspect that it's from the IvyDry which seemed create something like a bad sunburn (on top of the poison - ouch). In retrospect, though, it DID keep it from blistering. Has anyone had experience with scarring from poison? What can I expect?
