The rural doctor had prescribed steroid (prednasone, 60mg per day, with
weaning off it gradually), Benadryl
, albuterol inhaler, and an anti-depressent (I still haven't filled or used an anti-depressent). In the next week two of us couldn't get enough relief for me, the hives never disappeared, though did "smear", but were still raised smears on inner thighs, arms, legs, and breaking out anew sometimes. And symptoms of burning and fuzzy face and such.
