Was RX’ed Prednisone on Monday for assistance in recovering from a suspected food allergy.
Had urticaria running up and down my arms, hips, fronts of my legs and the crooks of my knees, and it itched like crazy.
Not sure what the allergy is, but it’s slowly resolving with the help of antihistamines as well as this Prednisone, perhaps.
I work in the Medical field, and have heard of the effects P-sone can have on people, but I guess I was too egotystical to think it would happen to me.
My face and fingers feel puffy, I have zero appetite, yet my skin is really dry all over. I’ve had these symptoms before but not really all at once and though it’s not life threatening it’s a real pain in the ass.
I’m hydrating like crazy but the symptoms are still prevalent.
Is there anything else I can do or will these symptoms subside once the taper concludes on Saturday? Anyone else have experience taking this medication?
Thanks in advance, and for the forum to complain.
