Symptoms?: What you may be experiencing may be merely side effects of the albuterol like heart racing and pounding which is not an allergy but an effect upon the heart.

Have rash x3 weeks doc said it was allergy to take meds have been and it just keeps spreading and isn't going away. Pics in profile tried cortisone too.?
Need to see picture.: This could be eczema, a drug rash, or hives depending on the nature of the rash. I am unable to access your pic. If it continues despite antihistamines and cortisone it very possibly is due to a medication or supplement you are taking, or nsaids (aspirin, ibuprofen, naprosyn, (naproxen) etc). Please ask for a referral for consultation with a board certified allergist, especially if the rash lasts 6 weeks. ...Read more

I have mild neutropenia (1.5) with eosinophilia. My GP thinks the eos-from allergy-suppress the neutr. Is there a way to lower eos without cortisone?
Unlikely: Despite college textbooks, common allergies seldom raise the eosinophil count. I trust there has been a check for helminths. If the eos are over 1000 or you have anything to suggest Churg-Strauss or Hodgkin's, a workup / consult is in order. Stable mild neutropenia like yours is usually "just you" and harmless; your neuts may simply hang on vessel walls better. ...Read more

Yes, but....: System-wide exposure to steroids is associated with an increased long-term risk of complications such as cataracts, glaucoma and osteoporosis. Cortisone injections are sometimes used to relieve debilitating symptoms quickly, but their routine use is not a good idea. Get an evaluation by an allergist to determine the optimal way to control your allergies. ...Read more
