Just took the hottest bath I could stand and covered these huge welts with cortisone cream. Usually this gives relief for 3 hours. I have been totally unfamiliar with this condition. Did think you had blisters on your skin. I have no blisters "thank goodness" just huge red and swollen patches that itch and are painful. Started at the middle of back waistline. Now has progressed to hip and some on my stomach. At this point I will not go on pain medication. Want nothing else in my system as the poison ivy medication and shot are almost out of my system So, will see what happens. Sky, when I will try some of your lotion. I am told this could be weeks or months of this condition and then after many months I can get a shot to prevent it happening again. I will add that never in a million years did a condition like this enter the mind of this One Woman Thank you for all of the encouragement and kind comments I just came inside from filling bird feeders. I do know that I feel better when I am surrounded by nature.
A beautiful day is in progress and I will spend much time in my garden and walking the paths in the woods.
I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and have my senses put in order ~~~John Burroughs~~
