I honestly don't know any speedy ways to get rid of the rash, but I have found a great way to control the oozing of the blisters.

Sprinkle cornstarch on a gauze bandage and apply over oozy sores. (much better than paper towels stuck all over your body)

Sure stops the nasty yellow ooze. Very helpful if you are like me, and have to go to work with this crap or sleep without your arms and legs sticking to each other or the sheets.

I get this crap almost every other week, lucky for me this week I got a predisone shot and 2 weeks of pills. My worst case ever and I never even touched the stuff. Neighbors are burning brush!!!

Good luck to everyone out there...take your meds or herbal remedies, 2 benadral, be sure to cornstarch and gauze your wounds and go crawl in bed!
