The shot only works if you get it as SOON as you notice a problem; don't get it now or you will get rebound and make it worse. The doc can give you steroids but you MUST take them for 2 weeks; I also got rebound from having a too short course of them from an on-call doc. Add to that the Ivy Dry burns and I've been pretty misearable. AND the Benedryl decided to "jazz me up" instead of making me sleepy (hense this 4 AM message)
