Barb, sorry you aren't doing well. Several times I started to ask someone for your phone number and then forget or get caught up in other things. I am glad to know someone will let us know if anything happens to you but hate that that is even a possibility. I think I have some kind of skin infection myself under my arms because of how the skin looks and the funny smell even right after washing them. I am putting off a doctor visit and trying at home treatment first because I don't have a dermetologist at the moment. Also because I just don't have the energy for a doctor appointment, then there is the fact that my cns symptoms are back and I am afraid to drive myself anywhere.
Carol, I put on 20lbs because of the prednisonse increase and wish I had a treadmill. I would be very intimate with it if I had one.
