I got it in the same places again. I had a pretty bad case, all over my legs, some patches were the size of pancakes, some were like someone had taken a paint brush and painted my legs with blisters. After 2 courses of Prednisone and a shot of Kenelog my symptoms had almost resolved, was just dealing with a mild rash and some sporadic spots kind of like mosquito bites. Then it started up again in all the same spots, my feet, between my toes, the splash marks on my legs, everywhere it had been before. So many people are telling me it can't be poison ivy (because I've had it so long and because they've never heard of it coming back in the same spots again), but it's exactly the same as when I broke out so bad 5 weeks ago. It must not be very common to have it this long, even my doctor is surprised. Hope you get better soon.
