Wow. I'm sorry for everyone's discomfort but so glad to know its not just me! This is my 2nd bout with this rash in 4 weeks, the first time I thought it was just a heat rash. But in both instances, I had been eating raw shiitake mushrooms for about 2 days prior. Why aren't there more warnings about this in the media or even a sign at the grocery store? I am covered hairline to feet (and worse of all in my pubic region!) in red welts, streaks, bumps, and flat red dots that look like petechiae. I took a steroid last time but I still endured it for about 7 days. Thanks for the info, Ms. Blacksberg!
