I have been diagnosed with Heat-Induced Urticaria by my allergists and she put me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> for 10 days along with Fenofexadine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Alavert until I go for my follow up examination. These medications have suppressed the itching and i dont break out with bumps at all. The itching is not fully gone but I force my self to itch by working out and once i heat up and start working out vigourously the itching goes away but i feel real hot and i cant sweat nowhere on my body but my face.

However, 7 hours post bee sting I woke up with hives on my legs, butt, back and arms. There were no new foods, medications, or detergents. I did bring a new foster dog into the household 3 weeks prior to the hives but have since then found her a home.

I went on Methotrexate about 2 yrs ago for chronic hives while weaning off <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> 30mg daily (which was causing horrible side effects) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the hives did go away for about a year. Stopped the Methotrexate after about 10 months or so (didn't notice any bad side effects) and a few months later the hives were back. Eventually had to go back on prednisone 10mg as needed for the hives. My lips also swell pretty bad. It comes out of nowhere!

I also started 500/50 of advair recently after being on lower doses <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> slowly being upped. I've also been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> for several months <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> am finaly tapering down, we should see results soon I guess.
My skin cleared up real fast, I was prescribed 3 days worth of prednisone(10mg) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cetirizine</span>(10mg) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> sent on my way. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cetirizine</span> every 12 hours, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> every 24 hours. It's now been a little over 72 hours since I had the reaction. My hives are pretty much gone, they came and went a little bit since the reacton. Anyways, the diagnosis at the ER was just hives, but I still feel not right. I suspect it's possibly an allergy to wheat, or possibly new contact lenses.
I dont know if i have stubborn viral infection or viral illness, or major chronic sinusitis that just has not gone away. I think it has to do with tempersture change <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> maybe the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> lowered my immune system so that a viral illness is still lingering.I also get low grade fever during the day. Anybody have any ideas?
I researched, and found that some vets are having success treating cat allergies with zyrtec. The generic is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cetirizine</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it is available OTC. Our kitty weighs 10 pounds. The vet had us start with 1/2 of a human dose (24 hour pill, 30mg). We now give him 1/2 pill in the morning and 1/2 pill at night (a human dose split in two), and for a while his itchy/scratchy definitely got better. I also suffer seasonal allergies, and the last week has been horrible.
I had crooked ring like rashes all over my body which would come <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> go. Then I went to an allergist <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> he put me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> steriods. After the 6 day coourse the stuff had almost completely gone from my body. I found out I am allergic to brufen though. I had a blood test done in which my white blood count was 5 normal being (4-10). around very early feb maybe 4th. I got another blood test done this time with hiv test included on my request.

I am wondering what is causing the dark circles under my eyes. I am getting enough sleep. Is it the allergy or one of the meds?
It seems that the body adjust to it but I strugle to tolerate the pain. I visited an allergist two weeks ago <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> he prescribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cetirizine</span>. He said it's dermographism and the skin prick test didn't identify anything this time. Not even mold and dust, as it was the case 20 years ago. Although scenarios 1 and 2 above are no longer happening, I am experiencing the symptoms other times during the day. Very minor, though.
we went away over the weekend <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> i got concerned <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> took him in to a walk in clinic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the dr said it looked like poison ivy so they gave his a prescription of 5ml prednisone his took that for 2 1/2 days i thought it was gatting better than in the middle of the night he started ichying like crazy could not sleep and felt sick to his stomach.when he woke up this morning his face was really really red and really swollen it scared me so i took him to the emergency room.
I saw an ENT who diagnosed me with rhinitis and prescribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span>, which did not help. I ended up having turbinate reduction surgery <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> again starting taking Zyrtec (generic) at night so as to avoid daytime fatigue and flonase steroidal nasal spray(generic). At that same time I also began post meno bleeding and had a D&C which showed no cancer.

Double conventional doses of these non-sedating antihistamines such as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cetirizine</span>, Loratadine, Acrivastine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Fexofenadine may be needed to get symptom relief. Sedating antihistamines such as Chlorphenamine or Hydroxyzine are used at night to get urticaria control. Short courses of oral cortisone or steroids are taken for short periods (one to three days) to settle more severe symptoms. You may take Vitamin C along with the prescribed treatment. Vitamin C is a general anti-allergy supplement.
sent me to ear, nose, throat specialist, who gave me all the nasal antihistamines <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> steroid sprays which didn't help. Put me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> (steroid) for 12 days <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> finally got better, although not perfect. The fatigue, balance problems, pressure in head is gone, although I still get pain in right back of head when sleeping and still get stopped up. Been using saline irrigation, also. They are sending me for allergy tests.
The Rash appeared to come and go but each time it comes back stronger <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> harder. My doctor put me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span>, Zopliclone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Hydroxyzine. He does not know what is causing the rash. I am getting a better sleep but still wake up middle of night with itchy burning hands. If I go off the drugs all the symptons return. I find myself tired and worn out all the time since the rash started and feeling as if my strength is slowly ebbing away.
My doctor prescribed some steriod therapy, a short course of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it has been clearing up pretty quickly since then. I'm hoping that I still can go out into the sun though since it's finally summer and I have three children. Do you think I'll consistently have to take precaution or will my skin get used to it? My doctor didn't have an answer to this question. Thanks again for your response!

They went a way pretty fast, but for the next couple of weeks I struggled with small hives popping up around my bra, waistband, and sleeves. Here is my question I had starterd penicillin one week exactly before I broke out, I discontinued the meds when I broke out. I had been tested for penicillin by a blood test and it was negative.

We have seen two Dermatologists (different practices) a family doctor <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> an allergist to no avail. Both Dermatologists have have said its eczema but there has been no change in the condition despite their treatment. NOTHING stops the itching and its almost impossible not to scratch.
At first the dermatologist prescribed betamethasone cream but nothing happened. They got worse. I went to another doctor <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> was prescribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span>. I was advised to take the pills for only a week. The rashes disappeared while I was taking prednisone but they came back after I stopped. I went to a new dermatologist and she performed a biopsy. The doctor said, I had drug allergy. She prescribed Clobetasol cream and another steroidal based pill.
Thanks for your helpful comments. I have been using antihistamines regularly, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my md prescribed 5 days of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> which gave me some relief. 36 hours after discontinuing the prednisone, the symptoms are returning - some hives, foot swelling, etc. I had blood tests for auto immune problems but they were negative. I am staying away from shellfish and almost all wheat/gluten. I guess I need to see an allergist. Could these symptoms be related to any kind of parasite infestation?
Hi, I was diagnosed with Shingles 5 days ago and have been on the following meds for 5 days. I am having a bunch of skin reactions <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> wonder if I am hypersensitive to one of them, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> if so which one. Percoset (7.5 Oxycodone. 3.25 Acetaminophen, 1 pill every 6 hours), prednisone (20mg; 3 pills for 3days, 2 pills for 3days, 1 pill for 3days), and Acyclovir 800mg (1 tab, 5 times per day, for 7 days). I am having a couple of skin reactions above and beyond the shingles "pox.
