Hi everyone! Last Sunday night after working out, I noticed an itchy patch right on my left inner thigh. I thought that maybe it was poison ivy, so I went to my pcp and he confirmed it was. He gave me a steroid cream 3x a day. I made a dermatologist appointment the next day just in case. They also said poison ivy. Gave me 20 mg prednisone for a week. Well, it kept spreading and getting itchy so on Friday I went back to my pcp. He then said it wasn't poison ivy but instead PR. He told me to continue the steroid cream and just wait it out. I have another dermatologist appt tomorrow morning. I went and bought head and shoulders, emergen-c, l-lysine, and ordered prreeze off amazon. I also plan to sunbathe today for a good 20 minutes. Is there anything else I can do? I feel ugly and itchy. I really want to get rid of this rash ASAP so I can go back to my normal life. As of right now, I am riddled with anxiety and feeling very depressed.
