Who knows me knows I am against drugs, in all forms. I won;t even take aspirin for a headache. I just don't like the idea. I fyou have read this blog in the past week, though, you will know I was put on a steroid (prednisone) for poison ivy.

I don't know if the redness is also a side effect, but you can see they are much smaller now.
