If you get an allergic contact dermatitis --- the usual red itchy rash all over the body, etc. --- the doctor always prescribes Prednisone to help kick it out of your system.
MY QUESTION -- If a person took NO DRUGS at all --- just treating the itching with a lotion or something --- would the outbreak just naturally "run its course" in time and eventually disappear? Or is the Prednisone absolutely necessary and essential to getting rid of the outbreak/body rashes?
That is, does a person's body eventually defeat and get rid of the ugly, itchy outbreak on its own... or, without drugs, would the problem just persist and spread and never go away, slowly taking over your entire body?
Any advice or personal experience would be appreciated...
