I'm on holiday and despite being careful in the sun, I'm covered in small red, itchy lumps. I'm not exaggerating when I say from head to toe. I've been to the pharmacy and tried cream (steroid, calamine, aloe Vera) as well as taking antihistamines. My joints are hideously swollen. I'm miserable and tearful.
I can get prednisolone where I am and I was wondering if it would be foolish to take a small dose to tide me over until I can see/speak to a doctor on Monday.
I wouldn't be considering it unless I was desperate. I have a 5 hour flight to content with tomorrow night and I have no idea if I can manage it in this state.
