Difference between skin rashes for eczema/psoriasis and shingles?
I have suffered with what i was told (from as far back as i can remember) was eczema (which i was told i would outgrow, but still waiting ( at 50 yrs old). It has caused me to think that the doctors don't know what they are talking about and that my skin reash flare ups might be due to a completely different diagnosis (lupus/sporiasis/shingles). All i know is that i havr allwrgies but not to what i was allergic to as a child. While growing up, i was told we couldn't have pets (cats, dogs or birds) because i was allergic yo them…and now i have 2 dogs and 2 cats living with me and NO ALLERGIC REACTIONS TO ANY OF THEM!! I have a really bsd reaction to coming off of a powerful corticosteroid – prednisine…which i hope will subside soon as it hurts!! Doctor says i can't stay on prednisone, which is what i would rsther do (stay on prednisone) however i gained a ton of weight (20 lbs +) and it made my face so fricking puffy, it looked as though i had mumps….
I don't know what to do next!! Please reply with suggesstions….
