Hi everyone. This is my first post here.
I am 49 years old and had my first outbreak a little over 1 week ago after doing heavy yard work on a very hot day. At first I thought I had been bitten by a swarm of mosquitoes but the welts soon appeared all over my body. My doc put me on a tapered dose of prednisone as well as Zyrtec, Zantac, and Benadryl.
I notice that the welts and itchiness reappear first thing in the morning. I am guessing this is due to a rise in body temperature while sleeping. I have only one day’s worth of prednisone left and am concerned. Does anyone else have this experience of waking up with the welts and have any suggestions?
I have been hypersensitive to heat my entire life and am really puzzled as to why this is happening to me now. Thanks for any suggestions and I hope everyone is doing well.
