If : If the skin is tender to the touch then may he is suffering from an infection at the injection site. His leg feeling "locked up" is a worrisome sign. Maybe the injection hit a nerve, which is now partially damaged. Regardless of the possible causes of his symptoms he should be evaluated by his doctor right away or be seen in the er if he has a fever or worsening pain.
Lastly, to answer your question the cortisone injection typically takes about 24 hours to reach full effect.
I hope he is better soon. ...Read more

Entire body feels as if it's burning, bumps all over my skin including stomach, thighs and arms. I think it's heat rash, but what can I do to cure it?

Doctor can evaluate: Rashes are hard to describe in words. Usually, a doctor has to look at a rash to see what it might be. For common rashes such as eczema, mild reactions to plants or chemicals, excessive dryness, or little itchy bumps, over-the-counter Hydrocortisone 1% cream for 1 week, usually helps. A doctor can help figure out the cause, look for internal disorders, and decide if Claritin (loratadine) or zyrtec would help. ...Read more

Husband has very red skin w/yellow blisters in his crotch and inside leg area. Temperature 99.9. Yesterday just looked like a heat rash w/itching and burning. Today seems much worse. The reddest I have ever seen

This : This rash could be a few different things.
impetigo is a skin infection caused by bacteria — either streptococcus or staph. This needs to be treated with antibiotics.
contact dermatitis is skin inflammation. It can be caused by plants such as poison ivy or poison oak or it can be from contact of a chemical or item that a person is particularly sensitive to. This is usually treated with steroid creams or oral steroids.
— viral illness such as chicken pox, shingles or herpes can also cause painful blisters on a red base. This can be treated with anti-virals or just needs to run its course depending on the severity of the infection.

The best thing to do is to contact his doctor and have him seen, since each possible problem requires different treatments. Good luck. ...Read more
