I got it very bad on both legs, they swelled with lots of fluid and that was after a 6 day steriod pack. Took another 6 day steriod pack got lots of headaches, still do. after 15 days the swelling started to reverse. My legs look like a burn victim. Then my body broke out with dozens of small reds dots and I itch like all hell. I keep getting patches all over. Will this pass on it's own? My stomach is very queezy and I have bad a headache all the time. Is this a reaction to the cephalexin 500mg? A friend said the poison is in my blood and the break-outs I have on the outside will or could happen inside my body. Is there any truth to this? Can a person die from poison ivy/oak? It's been 24 days, anyone with knowledge...
