Deltasone (prednisone): "I'm rating this a 'one' reluctantly because it truly worked miracles. I've wrestled with eczema for years and it has become quite painful. An ER doctor prescribed this when I was there for an unrelated issue. Within days my open skin and rough patches were completely gone. But the side effects...I put on 15 pounds in under two weeks, with a painfully swollen gut, stomach pains and insomnia. Upon visiting my regular physician, he refused to renew the prescription, explaining that these side effects, and potentially much worse, were due to the Prednisone."
The rash is the same all the time, it randomly itches, especially at night, after I get out of a hot shower, it itches in the shower when the hot water hits my legs & body, little areas on my back itch, & bumps appear. I’ve had bed bugs before, not anymore (I’m sure of it) & these new bites resemble the bed bug bites I used to get; when I feel an itch, I scratch it & a bump would rise & the area would turn red. These new bites/ rash is a bit different though- like you said if I sleep in a different place I can tell for sure- when me & my boyfriend both sleep at a night at his house in Coney Island, the itching appears the same in the shower & before I go to sleep at night- as to when we spend the night at my house in the same bed & shower. Not to get too personal, but explain a little more; we sleep in the same bed, take a shower at the same time, use the same body soap, wash ragg, towels, sheets, & sometimes clothes, we are also sexually active, so we think what we’re doing is basically pass it back & forth to eachother because of the skin-to-skin contact continuely, therefore if its scabies I would think this would explain everything. But I’m still clueless as to what to do, nor what I could do. You mentioned taking oral Benadryl, we did that & that stopped the itching but for only a couple of hours. You also mentioned skin follicles, I deff. have no doubt that it could be this, because we haven’t been in a hot tub, & the rash/ bites are presistant all over our bodies.
You wanted to know more about if the itchy changed- No, it doesnt, its been the same for about 2 months now. Except the itchiness isn’t so intense on my inner theighs & no more red veins are popping out like broken blood vessels. Yes, it does lessen 3-4 hours after a hot a shower. No, there is no crusting or scaling at all, so I guess that rules out hives. Any more questions would help me clarify & explain more detail in this.
There is also no mm burrows on our waists or wrists, no tiny red veins, just some itchy random bumps, sometimes they appear & start itching for like 30 minutes straight, then they stop itching, go away, then return again sometime in the night. Lastly you also mentioned; cholinergic urticatia, I’m about to look more into that, I’m not sure what that is, I never heard of it. Thank you for all your help, I hope everything I stated can help yet again indentify this so I can cure it already. Thanks again
