If u have a 20 CM large local reaction to mosquito or ant bite, do u need a cortisone injection? What is the danger in not taking the injection?
Injection reaction: It's unlikely this far out from injection. Typically bad reactions are within hours to days. If the pain is in your hand, the effects of the injection may have worn off or you have experienced an exacerbation of the arthritis or synovitis that you were originally given the injection for. I would make an appointment with your physician to see if something else can be done for your symptoms. ...Read more
Had a cortisone injection in my foot for morton's neuroma, and my middle toes are now very swollen in between. Is this normal or a shot reaction?

Contact dermatitis: It really depends on several factors. Did you get all of the material off your skin? How long was it in contact with your skin? Is this the first or 2nd time you have had this reaction? How much "cortisone" was in the injection? Most reactions clear in a week. Sometimes a 2nd injection may be necessary. In that case, figure two weeks. But is should get better each day. ...Read more
Had are recent allergic reaction to cipro! Lasted about 4 months, am fine now. Need a cortisone shot for swollen vocal chords, is it safe?
Doubtful: I'd great doubt that the 4-month long "allergic reaction" was from cipro (ciprofloxacin). As for your swollen vocal cord, have you seen an ENT doctor on this condition? If it is just a one-time thing, cortisone may be ok but whether it works or not is another issue. If it is a recurrent problem, then you need to consult an allergist since throat swelling can be a life-threatening event. ...Read more

Bulging Disc: A bulging disc may not be cause of pain. It is just a finding on and MRI and may not mean anything. In fact, in a review of lumbar mri’s in individuals with no back pain, 54% of people less than 60 had at least 1 bulging disc and 74% of those sixty and older had at least one bulging disc (boden et al, 1990). That being said an epidural block offers relief to many patients with back pain. ...Read more

Minimal: Ganglion cyts appearing frequently in the hand/wrist area are due to tendon motion in the sheath resulting in fluid collection and cyst formation.

While surgery can yield somewhat better result there are complications. ...Read more

Maybe ice: If you are talking about the brief redness right after the injection, you might make it go away quicker by gently icing the area. Don't put ice directly on the skin (use a cloth) and don't leave it in place more than 20 min out of each hour. ...Read more
