Thanks for the warning. I decorated my window boxes and tree with something that has greenish tinged white berries. I think it was PI. The rash seems to be popping up here and there, but the one on my wrist is the worst. I have ben using 'Clobetasol' Cream 0.05% from the Dr. It's like an external steroid and is supposed to control the itching. I'm using very large surgical bandaides to keep it from getting in contact with clothing and spreading even more. Use the cream sparingly as it thins the skin apparently and 'more is not better', but it keeps it moist and soft and should alleviate the tight skin. J
