THANK YOU for posting! Now I don't feel alone. I'd love to hear from the editor on this. I caught poison oak from the sheet on the table at my chiropractor's office. Through lots of email we narrowed it down to a client that saw him before me and must have had it on his clothes. I got severe bloody, oozing, blistery, swelling up on both elbows. I just finished the prednisone last Sunday. My elbows healed up fast. On Tuesday, both of my legs now have hives, it looked just like my elbows did at the beginning of all this but hasn't gotten worse than just red patches, some raised. Now I'm on day 2/3 of the second dose of prednizone. My general dr. said that the poison oak is still in my system. I hate taking prednisone and hope the side effects are worth it. My question is...can this be happening? And thanks to the previous posts the answer is yes. My next question is what is prednisone doing to me? I'd like this to be the end of it all. Any comments greatly appreciated!
