Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • The rash is on neckline at shoulders and extends about 3 inches up on the scalp from ear to ear. The rash on the back is across the shoulders and extends about 5-6 inches doon between shoulder blades. It has been treated with prednisone, topical steroids, etc. I have changed shampoos, use no sprays, have changed soaps that clothes are cleaned in, have stopped all meds at different intervals to see if it was ingested. Nothing has changed the continuation of the rash. Spiriva is the one constant since it started 5 months ago. I have changed corticosteroids. I have noticed that it seems to be worse in the late evening and I use the Spiriva inhaler at 4 PM each day.
