I'm on week 7 now and counting. Was exposed to PI all over my legs Aug 12th in Oregon. My mystery rash that used to appear on my torso hasn't returned, but I continue to have my old spots re-erupt on a regular basis (like right now.) I have sworn off the prednisone, the patches of itch that I'm getting now are milder and don't blister so that cure is definately not worth the benefit I'd get at this point. I'm using Bactine spray now, which has a bit of Lidocaine in it which helps when I get really itchy. I'm also using a product for rashes with Aloe and sea salts in it, and occasionally a good vitamin E cream. Half the time I look okay enough to wear shorts in the gym, half the time I don't. It's gotten to the point where sometimes I don't care that people see me looking like a leper because trying to hide it is getting old. The re-eruptions are always in exactly the same places as my original PI, or I'd think that I had something else going on. It's hard to believe this has gone on so long.
