HELLO...I AM SORRY FOR EVERYONE SUFFERING WITH THIS HORRENDOUS RASH - I HAVE BEEN DEALING WITH IT FOR 2 WEEKS AND THE ORIGINAL SPOTS ON MY ARMS AND KNEE HAVE BEGUN TO SCAB OVER BUT THEY ALSO SEEM TO BE SPREADING TO THE PERIMETER OF THE SCAB. i AM NO LONGER ITCHING WHERE IT HAS SCABBED, BUT ALL AROUND IT NEW TINY BUBBLES HAVE DEVELOPED AND ITCH LIKE CRAZY! I HAVE ALSO BEGUN TO EXPERIENCE A RASH (NOT POISON IVY- LOOKS MORE LIKE HEAT RASH) THAT ITCHES ON MY STOMACH, BACK, HIPS AND THIGHS. i AM GOING CRAZY!!!! I HAVE TAKEN SUPER HOT SHOWERS WHICH RELIEVE THE PAIN AND ITCH FOR A WHILE - HAVE ALSO STARTED WITH THE BLOWDRYER WHICH ALSO HELPS. HAVE BEEN USING AVEENO CALAMINE LOTION AND BURT'S BEES POISON IVY SOAP. IS ALL OF THIS NORMAL? I AM THINKING OF TRYING BENEDRYL PILLS TONIGHT TO HELP ALSO. WILL THIS GO AWAY, EVER? HOW LONG? THANK YOU.
