    Mini Pred Blast

    I guess I found some poison ivy in one of my (several) excursions off the fairways and into the bushes. At any rate, I developed an itchy rash similar to poison ivy. It appeared mostly on my calves and ankles, but not where my socks covered my skin. Historically, I was very allergic to poison ivy. It would get into my blood stream and spread all over. This time, not so much.

    Using hydrocortisone cream didn’t seem to be clearing it up. I decided to try a mini pred blast to see if that would get it cleared up. I took 10 mg on Thursday and Friday and 5 mg today. I’ll finish with another 5 mg tomorrow morning. I’ve noticed that the rash has pretty nearly dried up and stopped itching. I guess my self-prescribed treatment is working.

    Have used pred blasts on various issues, and usually worked. Another hint: stay in the fairway!!! LOL
