Cortisone shot for albuterol allergy?

Cortisone shot for albuterol allergy?

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. I suspect that's what you are having. Other drugs of this type for bronchospasm may be less of a problem for you or you may just be overusing your medication. ...Read more

Red chin. It's been a long time... I did allergy test but it's not it. Dermatologist gave cortisone but as I know it is not really a solution?

Follow Dermatologist: We can not tell you what is it and what treatment you need. You have been examined by a Dermatologist and he has prescribed a cortisone cream. We can not double guess the Dermatogist who already has examined you. You have two choices either use the cream and if you don't trust the Dermatologist get a second opinion by consulting another Dermatologist ...Read more

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

Can I go for food allergy test if I am on cortisone?

Can I go for food allergy test if I am on cortisone?

Ige mediated food allergy (but not igg because igg food test is unproven) can be done by skin prick test or blood test, which is not interfered by cortisone. However cortisone will interfere with food patch test, which test cell mediated food allergy. ...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?

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

For the past few days my left wrist has been very itchy. I have a bad nickel allergy so no jewelry. I tried lotion, Olux, and Cortizone (hydrocortisone) and no relief.

For the past few days my left wrist has been very itchy. I have a bad nickel allergy so no jewelry. I tried lotion, Olux, and Cortizone (hydrocortisone) and no relief.

What is your exposur: This brings up the question of what you may be exposed to now that you are not aware of. The nickel allergy reaction is contact dermatitis and this suggests you may have another sensitizer. You might do an inventory - watch, new detergent, etc. This is not generalized but localized to something near the left wrist. Is the wrist itchy on the top or bottom? Maybe your dog has somet ...Read more

Possibly.: Atopic dermatitis does run in families, so children of those afflicted have a higher-than-average chance of getting it.
