3 weeks ago I received a steroid shot for a large amount of poison ivy on my back. I also started taking steroid pills. It almost immediately got rid of the bumps and scratching. For the past 2 weeks there has still been large amounts of redness on my back, it looks as if i still have a rash but no itching or bumps. How long is this redness going to take to fade away and is it okay to get in the sun?
