I've had two great rashes with blisters on my forearms for a week, complete with blisters. Cold wash cloths, an anti itch soap from the natural food store called All Terrain followed with Cetaphil moisturizing cream provide some comfort. I went to the dr. and started an oral prednisonen regimen which is working, although it is a lot of pills, 6 pills in the morning x 5 days, then 4 x 5days, then 2 x 5days then 1 x 5days. Steroids need to be tapered out of your system once introduced. It has spotted elsewhere, and I mean everywhere! Thanks for this web site. Michael
