I have a rheumy appt on 1.25. I intend to ask her but I came here because I’m miserable.
Just before Thanksgiving, I was given Doxycycline for an infection. Three doses later, I had an allergic reaction, including the wonderful Doxy rash from my chest down my arms to my legs and feet. My arms looked like someone undergoing dialysis or an IV drug user. It took two steroid bursts, a ton of Hydroxyzine, Benadryl spaced during the day and most of a tub of Triamcinolone before I noticed some relief around Christmas.
I’m still having trouble with my skin, sort of needle pricks that turn into itching. It will prick my upper right arm, itch, then there’s a needle prick on my left leg and itch, then maybe it’s my chest with a needle prick and itch.
I’ve had a bout of heat rash on my stomach and a bout of what I think is a stress rash (I’m recovering from a two-week long asthma flare that scared the crap out of me thinking it was COVID). I do intend to ask about the stress and heat rashes in 10 days.
I’ve used most of a tube of Eucerin Calming Cream. Any other bright ideas?
