- Bone pain localized to poison ivy rash
I am having a moderate to strong reaction to poison ivy exposure. I have a localized rash with blistering, swelling and inflammation similar to cellulitis. The rash has been progressing for about a week. The blisters are not weeping or oozing. The area is cleaned daily with neem oil soap. Coincident with the rash, I have a persistent ache/pain in my lower forearm, wrist and hand that is responding weakly to Aleve and pretty much unresponsive to acetaminophen.
- Aleve and erythema multiforme
I started exercising (walking outside)and due to sore knees I started taking Aleve. Within days I developed blisters on my chest, back, face, and inside my mouth. Mouth blisters were severe enough that I could only consume liquids. After 7-10 days the blisters scabbed over. This occurred three times within a two month period, the last time I had blisters around my eyes with physician concern of eye involvement but it did not happen. During the second round I went to a dermatologist and he determined that I had Erythema Multiforme and the cause was either a strep throat or Aleve. A second opinion determined it was Aleve partly because strep throat is not normally associated with EM. I have stopped taking Aleve and am EM free for 15 months.
