Red face Rash from RSD

Hey everyone, got a new problem here. Today is 8 days now that I've had a horrible rash on my legs and I'm wondering if it is related to the RSD. It came on in my left leg first (which isn't where the RSD began, it began in the other leg...but my doctor told me five months ago he was pretty sure it was already spreading to the left leg) and it started off as a really deep and intense burning/itching sensation at the base of my calf, but has since spread over the entire leg up to my rear (left leg) and most of the way up my right leg. Went to the urgent care (not my pain dr.) three nights ago, as they were closing, and aside from not wanting to assist me because I suddenly turned ghost white, became nauseous, and then went into a panic attack (jerks) they gave me a steroid shot and sent me home with prednisone.

Nothing. I mean no effect or improvement at all.

So my question is have any of you experienced something like this? My leg has started to become scaly, and even the constant epsom salt/baking soda baths bring no relief. I'm going nuts here. Got a RFA on Monday afternoon, so I'll see my doctor and (hopefully) have a solution for the rash, but any of you have any luck with getting something like this cleared up with medication, like a cream?

Help me, please.

Re: Rash from RSD

Hi there, I have never had a rash (I hope I never get one), but I typed in the search engine (RSD and rashes) here and there are tons of people with RSD that have rashes. I think it can also be one of the symptoms for some people. Some responses even have the medications they take. That might help you with some relieve.
