The ER tech doing triage looked at it. He said he had never seen it before. He said a Nurse Practitioner was coming in. She came in. She had never seen it before. They decided someone else needed to see it. The next Nurse Practitioner came in. She said she had never seen a rash like this. Again, what the what? No one has seen it? Then where the heck did it come from? She said it's not like any other rash she had ever seen. I could very easily post pictures of it. But, I don't even like looking at it so I won't subject you to it. But, it's full body, red, itchy, and burns like a sunburn. So, without doing any tests and no doctor seeing me, it was decided to give me a nice medicine cocktail for the next 5 days. If it's not gone by then, I am being referred to a dermatologist.
My daily meds: Prednisone (2 pills once a day), Benedryl (50 mg every 4 hours) and Pepcid (20 mg twice day).
The Pepcid confuses me. I know it's a heartburn medicine so why am I taking it? Well, my research concluded that it helps enhance the benedryl. Ok, whatever.
So, now I play the waiting game. And I pray it's gone by Monday.....
