    My Mom was put in a hospice on Friday night, and along with everything else had MRSA in her urine so was in isolation. I had to wear a plastic gown and gloves to be with her, and after two days my skin was burning really bad. The doc. gave me a short time dose of a form of prednisone and I'm buying benedryl today.

    Yesterday it flared up again after coming home from the mortuary. I'm coping with her death on July 3 the best I can but this skin burning is really bad.

    Anybody deal with this? Apparently it is another thing that happens with FM.
