i was exposed to pi on may 30, in emergency room on june 7 because it looked infected, was given a steroid shot, and antibiotic w/ RX for tetracycline - which i started right away. Followed up with family md the next day who gave me a seven day Prednisone pack . after a few days the raw outbreaks have cleared, just still swollen, red and itchy - NO PUS. Finished pred pack and it seems that now i have a very itchy (small bumps) rash & swelling that resembles hives - In places where there was no original rash!!! i stopped taking the antibiotic in case it was a reaction. any ideas? my doc is on vacation this week, and i am getting frustrated....
