Nicole Forsi is skulking around 43 things
Came back from vacation on the Big Island, and 36 hours later broke out in hives. Weird thing is that it happened 7 years ago—the last time I went to the Big Island. Same MO. Day or so back from vacation and I’m all itchy.
But it’s been a MONTH!
Last time, a couple a days and over the counter Benedryl and I was good. I’m taking four different medications this time (and I don’t like taking ANY medicine!) I missed a dose on Wednesday morning, and by that evening I was covered again in red spots.
I’m on the “step-down” phase of the steroid for the second time. When I got under 15mg last time I broke out, so I went back up to 20mg for a couple of days. Just took the first of a few days of 10mg, and I’m crossing my fingers.
Anybody else out there have stories? Any alternate treatment?
