Thanks Michele - I'm a male 53 yrs in the UK - I ate some raw shiitake whilst making a mushroom omelette (Sunday) and began to react after 24 hours - rash on neck,face, hands - Wednesday went to GP (family physician) and given oral prednisone 28 tabs of 5mg - 30mg OD until all tabs used up - The rash is composed of raised red papules that are arranged in lines like scratch marks. I also had a reaction in my mouth - Dr said get to emergency room (a and e) if I was struggling with breathing . I'll probably avoid shiitake once this settles . I think this is pretty unusual in the UK so Dr couldn't be too sure - anyhow hope this doesn't last too long - Tim
