This doctor says the rash is poison ivy. Or poison oak or sumac. Something like that. But then he says that was what the dermatologist thought the rash two years ago was. Nevermind that I asked the dermatologist two years ago point blank: is this poison ivy, and was told no, contact dermatitis. Further proof that a) doctors practice the medical arts, not science, and b) Alan Alda has his work cut out for him getting doctors to do a better job communicating with patients (and probably each other). I hope the steroids get rid of it quickly this time.
