Me too!!! I had to finally see a doctor after 1 1/2 week of suffering. I got a shot and was put on 5 days worth of steriod. It did start to clear things up by the next day and was gone after about 4 days (although my arm kept itching I figure from dry skin) so then being free for about one week, I've got blisters on my toe (where it all started in the first place, same toe and my index finger.) It's horrible, I'm afraid I'm going to wake up tomorrow covered again. On page 4 of Q&A titled "Cont. spread of rash" a lady talks about how her Doctor ex military said to have 15 days worth of steriods (pill form) in order to knock it out completely. So if this is true, I just didn't get enough dose to knock it all out!! I have no idea. I just know that this SUCKS!
