hi, i have poison ivy and was prescribed prednizone. that pretty much dried up everything, but now a few days after finishing the meds, my arm really hurts and is red in patches. not itchy, hurts. has little bumps too. my dr said to use cortaid and call on monday if it doesn't get better. anyone ever have this problem before? i thought the meds would make it better and it would just heal. not get worse in a different way. any chance i am allergic to something? i've been using Sarna and calamine lotion. thanks, bridget
