Calf Rash Supreme

poison ivy calf rash

"Got in some poison oak unknowingly while hiking around the Bay Area in California. I had rolled my pant legs up so I could walk through puddles but this resulted in my calves and ankles getting exposed. I’d been on a 3-4 week steroid taper last summer for bad poison oak all over my body and want to avoid taking another taper so soon so am waiting it out. Hopefully it doesn’t scar too much."

What is unusual about this is how it seems to have formed a solid angry crust, but is still weeping from the edges. Not fun, not at all.
