Common Questions and Answers about Prednisone withdrawal rash


1716896 tn?1308884362 I've had a rash over my whole body, 3 rounds of prednisone, rash will not go away. Maybe for a day or two, when I think it might have gone away, it comes back with a vengeance.
Avatar m tn My 70 lb 12 year old golden retriever has a skin condition and was on Prednisone last year for about three weeks. She broke out with the same rash a few days ago, and (stupidly) instead of taking her to the vet, I gave her the same dosage of medicine that we had left over from the last time. I gave her 20mg in the morning, 20 in the evening, and then realized that I didn't have enough to complete the course for three weeks.
Avatar m tn Can I stop taking the prednisone after one dose of 2 20mg pills or will I suffer sever withdrawal and potentially hazardous reactions? Is it safe to just stop taking prednisone after a single 40mg dose?
Avatar n tn I began having this symptoms though when I was still on the prednisone but tapering down. ​My doctor said that I could be going through withdrawal from the steroids. I was on a higher dose: 60 for 2 days, 50 for 2 days, etc. He mentioned that I could be experiencing a hormone imbalance due to the steroid withdrawal. The burning and itching could be from the irritated nerves under the skin.
Avatar n tn With my own research, I am reading that my symptoms may well be withdrawal from my scopolomine patch. My question is whether this sounds like what may be causing my problem and if so, now what? What is the best course of action to get through the incapacitating symptoms and get off this patch?
Avatar n tn Hi, I have been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I am 25 & am on Prednisone(60mg),salasapyrin(500mg)& Plaquenil(200mg) per day. I have developed a large moon shaped face. I am swollen in the face & neck & hate what it is doing to my face. Will this swelling & fluid go away when I come off the steroids in five weeks? It is causing me to be depressed & family have noticed the change in my face & are worried for my health.
Avatar f tn The doctor at the clinic I go to (he is a GP, have not been able to see a rheumatologist yet) started me on 60mg/day of Prednisone roughly 3 months ago. After about a month he told me to reduce to 40mg/day. I did that, and then as I was starting to experience more and more side effects - and didn't have another appointment with my doctor for almost two months - I took it upon myself to taper down to 20mg/day.
Avatar m tn They said it wasn't dangerous but gave me prednisone and a prednisone shot. Now, 8 hours later, I am sitting here with a 116 pulse at rest! So I took a Xanax about 30 minutes ago. Remember, during this 3.5 months of quitting I have also experienced this ringing in my ears (more pronounced at night) as well. You really think that all of these are side effects of withdrawal? I just really didn't think I was taking that many of those pills.
Avatar f tn First they look like little red bumps, almost like pimples or bug bites, then it develops into a red splotchy rash. Then it bruises, I guess from me itching so much. I have a huge purple bruise on the top of my right thigh and one is starting to develop on the inside of my left thigh. Now I have the itchy red bumps on my wrist and hand, my arms, my foot, my stomach, and a few on my buttocks.

Avatar n tn Her doctor told her to take the prednisone back again if she was vomiting or felt nauseous. But so far the rash is the only weird symptoms she has.
Avatar n tn my 11 year old son had a virus on Thanksgiving 5 days later he started itching from head to toe no rash no hives nothing. we started him on benadryl and calamine lotiong, not relief so the Doctor gave him allegra and cortisone, no relief. Then the dermatologist gave him a shot of kenalog, and prescription cortisone. still no relief after two emergency room visits they gave him hydroxine and blood workups for kidney, liver, and thyroid came back normal.
Avatar m tn Four weeks after quitting the Incivek, the rash continued to progress over my lower extremities and he started me on Prednisone for two weeks. That finally interrupted the cycle so that The Rash finally began to clear. and the itch finally began to go away. All of the suggestions given to you are spot on. Try them all, but be aware too that 1-4% of patients taking the telaprevir get the severe rash. You cannot take the prednisone while taking the telaprevir.
Avatar n tn Derm only revealed acne breakout secondary to steroids, but in last two days had a small erythematous papular rash on top of right foot where currently having pain (erythema is intermittent and only comes with pain). No fevers or signs of systemic illness. Neuro is unsure of current condition. Attending thought it could have been due to Botox injection to glabellar area in early June (I feel that is too far off in timeframe).
4798753 tn?1359325903 Both Incivek and Riba can cause rash. Mine was actually a Riba rash and it stuck around until I finished my 48 weeks of treatment and, in fact, for quite some time afterwards. My main rash problems seem to be gone, I think, but I have lingering psoriasis issues so I am still working on that.
382193 tn?1205768711 Are you taking asprin? If so...ringing in the ears is a side effect of too much asprin.
2061891 tn?1330849606 I was put on prednisone and vicodin, neither of which worked. My Dr. didn't like how much tylenol I was getting so she put me on oxycodone and finally found the dosage that she was comfortable with, 20mg every 6 hours,but barely helped, then sent me to a rheumatologist who put me on prednisone (2nd treatment) again. After 3rd treatment of prednisone I requested a new rheumatologist that specialized in Lupus.
Avatar m tn I have been watching this forum for awhile and have seen no remedies for immediate relief, however I was taking 5 mg. of prednisone for my breathing problems and noticed it helped with the itch and joint pain. Hang in their.
Avatar f tn Hypertension, fluid and sodium retention, edema, worsening of heart insufficiency (due to mineral corticoid activity) Dependence with withdrawal syndrome is frequently seen.
Avatar f tn I am doing well. I am starting my second week of 10 mg prednisone together with the lower dose of methotrexate. After this week I should be going to 7.5 mg prednisone for two weeks. Then I will see the rheumatologist. I have been swimming, not that often, with waterproof bandaids covering my nipples, but I may be kidding myself because the padding part of the bandaid is moist when I remove them (maybe that's better than dripping wet). Anyway, the good breast is basically back to normal.
702529 tn?1228492533 I had to take prednisone when I was pregnant with my twins for PUPPP rash, which sucked...but I had no choice, as I was miserable. I was on lorazepam before I got pregnant and didn't have trouble getting off of it.. but I was taking in PRN (as needed) and not every night which is different than your situation.
902019 tn?1249865014 I was diagnosed 2 years ago with AIP, have a 25 year history of autoimmune disorders (eosinophilic vasculitis, mild Sjogren's). Usually have done well with prednisone for the various flare-ups but with AIP, still recurring symptoms and the elevated IgG4 periodically. Next step may be Imuran. Is there anyone out there who has had good results with Imuran for autoimmune pancreatitis?
Avatar f tn If it doesn't go away within the next couple of weeks, you might want to ask about a course of Prednisone or something similar to see if that will break the cycle. I know that it's VERY painful right now, but if you're taking a lot of OTC or Rxed painkillers for this headache/migraine, it might be time to STOP taking them for a while and see if the pain goes away.
534800 tn?1217170959 I moved from the dry climate of the Southwest and Southern Cal to hot and humid New England four years ago - nevr, ever had this until the first summer I arrived and then BAM! A weird, nasty rash that scares even me - I'm extremely active (walk every where and run 6+ daily) so suffice it to say being covered with this is not good for the image! Seriously though I'd like to know if there's a way to treat and how to keep it from spreading.
Avatar f tn I definately do think I have SLE, as many of the symptoms can not be explained any other way (my post was so long before, I realized I didnt mention that I have the malar rash(butterfly rash), and have been Dxd with Sjorgrens and Raynauds!!). I know that prednisone is used to treat MS as well, so Im happy right now that I am on a strong taper to get ALL symptoms under control. I have to say though, that that hasnt happened yet - I actually feel pretty lousy these past few days...
147426 tn?1317269232 I sure will stay tuned, this is very helpful of you to add. May I pop in a Q for the Q? My doc prescribed prednisone even though we don't know what is wrong with me. She said depending on if/how I respond, it may tell us something. Can you, when you get a chance, maybe say a little something about this? I was trying to look up if cortisosteroids can help with symptoms of Fibro or other mimics. Can the response to steroids shed any light on the situation of undiagnosed folks?
4492128 tn?1359292361 Chevyself, HPA axis recovery is possible for many people if they are put back on the steroids and then weaned very gradually. I know several people who were fortunate enough to have doctors willing to help them and wean them off steroids. I also know others who never succeeded. I went for 2 years without treatment or diagnoses because of the negligence in the state I live in from the medical community. They passed me around like a football over a 2 year period and I almost died.
