According : According to drugs.Com, there are no interactions listed for these two medications. However, i would not recommend the use of Zicam nasal gel for a cold. It has been implicated in causing the loss of the sense of smell and the fda pulled it from store shelves in 2009.

A 21-year-old member asked:

I have bad reactions to cold temperatures, but my symptoms dont sound like raynauds. What could they mean?

Some other causes: Some people feel quite uncomfortable in colder temperatures, a condition called cold intolerance or cold sensitivity. If the vasospasm of raynaud's phenomenon is not present, then the cold intolerance is probably due to other causes instead of raynaud's. Other causes include hypothyroidism, other hormonal imbalances, anemia, older age, low body weight with low body fat, etc...

Are there adverse reactions to epi-pens?

Yes: The greatest danger is injecting Epinephrine into your thumb. This occurs if you hold your thumb over the orange end while holding the blue end against the thigh. The needle comes out of the orange end! older persons with coronary artery narrowing should use Epipen (epinephrine) with caution. Nausea and hyperactivity are brief occasional adverse effects. Epipen (epinephrine) is a very safe & effective medication.

Half-life 8 hours: It generally takes 8-12 hours for half of the cortisone to be cleared by your body; however, your adrenal function could be suppressed for 2-3 years after a single dose. I would see your physician and have them test your adrenal function - and (perhaps) see if the same issue that lead to your treatment with a cs is still present.
