I've always thought it was a stress induced condition brought on by a visit from my in-laws. (hey, I have years of data to support it) Just today, a business consultant bet it is poison oak. I've been to my primary and a dermatologist. Aside from prendezone (sp?) and benedryl, my primary told me to take pepcid AC or tagament. While I've never had GI problems, he explained that these OTC drugs slow any progression. On the "how long" front, without the steroids, I've had for about 1/2 weeks, and could literally feel it go away in a two hour period. This is the first time I'm on steroids, so let's keep each other posted! I came down on 4/20, so you are ahead of me...
