Ok, I had a case that was pretty bad about 6 weeks ago. Took a prednisone pack and got rid of rashes completely. Six weeks later I had a new breakout - some new areas (neck, etc.) but also other areas that were like a perfect outline of my orignial breakout 6 weeks previous. My question is this: can a new outbreak ri-ignite the previously affected area such that they become inflamed in the same places all over again? Thanks for any help. This sucks.
