My skin is on fire. Yesterday I went to the derm. and I got a steroid topical cream plus 2 kinds of pills. I want to set my skin on fire, thinking this will take care of the pain, that's how bad they are. I would cry all day if I could. husband and I went for a walk in the park. They are everywhere, even on my most intimate area! There are hundreds of bites. Maybe a thousand. I'm not even kidding. husband does not have any. Please - I forgot to ask how long for this to go away, more are on my neck and face this morning. Did anyone ever have this? Thank goodness I can stay indoors- I look like a leper. Sunday was the day of our walk. I keep feeling like they are still stinging me. The derm offered steroid pills, but they make you gain weight, right? Any words of advice?
