So this might be a bit odd, but when I was at work Monday I ran out to the car to get my smokes. I was covered from head to toe, but as I leaned into
the car I left my legs exposed, and the backs of my pants legs got wet.
Today, this is what it looks like -
I've had it looked at by the company nurses, and none of them can identify it as anything for certain.
My mother, a practicing RN for the past 20+ years, said it could be either poison oak, poison ivy, or a stress rash. The strange part is that after I
got in from having said smoke while I was at work, I felt burning on my right leg - I ignored it until I got home, and was shocked to see the red,
angry welts going up and down the backs of my legs.
I have been taking Benadryl, and it has caused the worst of the rash to go away - but it still itches like crazy, and it has not spread to any other
regions of my body. I didn't really think to put this on ATS until I spoke with my father in law on the phone today, and he was complaining about a
rash he had on his shoulders and neck - I asked when it had started, and he said that he first noticed it after coming in from his routine evening
jog. He had apparently got caught in a small drizzle of rain on his way home, and later in the evening the rash began to harass him.
I'll try to talk him into letting me take some photos of his rash when I go see him tomorrow for laundry day.
Have any of you experienced anything of this sort lately?
