I'm just now getting caught up on this. What an awful weekend for you. I agree with what Rob said - things always seem to happen on Friday, and then we have to worry our way through a weekend.
So, if it's an allergic reaction, why is it still getting worse with the irritant (your meds) being gone?
I hope that some doc is smart enough to get this figured out soon.
Hang in there, friend!
Gentle Hugs,
