What's the question: Sounds like a continuation of the poison oak which can last for weeks unless interrupted by treatment with steroids. If you have a yeast infection on top of this it might be a little concerning with regards to your immune status, but if it remains localized may just be due to the exposed areas of contact dermatitis. If your develop any other symptoms see your doctor.
Dr. Manav Singla

Too much prednisone?: Were you on Prednisone / steroid pills for the poison oak? If so, that could result in the yeast infection. Otherwise, not sure about the small bumps.
Dr. Jovita Anyanwu
Internal Medicine 30 years experience
Possible: looking at the rash in the picture without actually seeing the patient will suspected a viral lesion condyloma contagiosum. This can occur in patients with weakened immune system if you took Prednisone. It will spread by scratching it. It will usually resolve after a long time without treatment. Use anti itch meds may help. A visit to a Dermatologist may clarify diagnosis and help in management

I had my kidney stone removed by scope and stent removed 6 days after. Is it normal to still feel pain?

Dr. Phillip Porch

Not Usually: Typically, after a stone is removed the the stent is removed, the pain goes away almost immediately. Sometimes, there is still some swelling in the ureter that could be giving continued pain or even possible a small stone fragment. I would check with your doctor with the pain persisting that long.
