My doc put me on hydrox after suspecting rhumy but not positive in blood test. Had hip pain he gave me cortisone shots in both hips which helped. I feel good on hydrox. but now experiencing aweful itchy rash all over. I live in Texas hits hard to avoid sun as we are ranchers. I am also hormonal with hot flashes which makes the itch worse. I stopped taking hydrox. last evening. How long will it take to leave my system? It is very hard for me to avoid sunlight with animals to feed. Any suggestions would be helpful. Still waiting for my doctor to get in. It's a long weekend.
