From this study (1 day ago):
The rash is only on my face. It comes and goes in severity from mild to moderate and is often on my cheeks and around my inner skin near my eyes/nose. It's sometimes itchy. The rash is often flat with bumps under the skin and then raised with pimple clusters but not like acne. At hospital ER once I was given an insulin shot in my IV fluids and prior to that I had drank 10 bottles of water because of cortisone shots I had in both knees (I was not on diabetic medication prior to this episode with the cortisone shots!). My skin seemed to clear up after release from the ER later that evening and was magically smooth and clear! Then the rash started back the next day.
