What else could it be if it's not poison sumac on my face? Please read information.
My entire face has been covered in a rash for 4 weeks. Thought it was poison sumac, went to the doctor & got a steroid shot, steroid dose pack, antibiotic, & pills & cream for the itching. It went away completely for about 3-4 days & then came back even worse & my face swelled up like a ballon, my eyes were almost completely swollen shut. It has started drying up (same thing it did the 1st time it got better), but is still pretty bad. it itches, burns, & hurts. Doctor said he doesn't think it's poison sumac, but possibly lupus. I will get the blood test results on the lupus test this afternoon. If it's not poison sumac or lupus what else could it be? it's been going on for about 4 weeks almost 5 weeks. It hurts, burns, & itches really bad & I am miserable. Not to mention everyone stares when I go out in public.
