Hello, 7 days ago ( friday) I ran across poison ivy and I caught it just about everywhere ( bad spots). So I decided on monday to go the doctor because the rashes were getting worse. I was giving a shot and a prescription for Methylprednisolone 4 mg 21 tablets( 6 day doses) and everything seemed to be working. I was finally not itching nearly as bad and sleeping much better, but the relief only lasted for 2 days. Now im back to being itchy in the same exact spots and the rashes are still there. I only have one pill left which I'm taking tomorrow morning. My question is should I go back to the doctor? Could I get another prescription or perhaps another shot? Or will it clear up before monday? It just seems like the less pills I'm taking the more my poison ivy is reacting again. Does the pills and shot have a short lifespan? And sorry I don't know what kind of shot the Doctor gave me. Thanks for any help!
