The doctor has given me 3 cortisone shots for what appears to be poison ivy. I am getting worse instead of better.
As an avid mountain biker who rides in all type of terrain and mountains in Southern California area, I am exposed to poison ivy all the time.
I had gotten 3 cortisone shots in the last 5 years because of the poison ivy. It works the day after I get the shot.
The itching and oozing stops and start to heal and within a week I am usually cured and my skin returns to normal.
The shot costs me $150.00 and the doctor prescribe predisone (2 weeks program) which helps me with my allergy as well.
