Ds is now having burning feet in the shower and then begins to get very emotional for some time after. Can the heat from shower cause a Herx? His feet turn fire red and now he claims his skin hurts all over for about 30 minutes after he gets out. I have tried cooler water but it's still warm enough to cause reaction. He hates the shower now and rarely enters. Any ideas? Perhaps an antihistamine before? Is this a good sign that things are dying?? I mentioned this to his doctors and they just sort of shrugged. He is being treated for Bart and on Ramifcan 150mg a day. LLMD does not want him on another even though I have read two is necessary. Trying to stay on treatment and trust the doc. Thanks for any thoughts
