I would not advise: Kenalog is a Category C agent. Animal studies show adverse fetal harm but no controlled human studies have been done. The OB will be the one to make that call. ...Read more

Either fine: The use of topical steroid creams/sprays that are really not systemically absorbed enough to cause any issues with reflux or ulcers are safe to use. ...Read more

Hair.: Yes, you may lose hair temporarily. Do not overuse topical corticosteroids as long term effects may be skin and hair follicle atrophy. Oral Prednisone is not usually prescribed for seborrhoeic dermatitis. ...Read more

A doctor that uses the combo 5 fu plus kenalog to treat keloids but I not safe ?

Common treatment: Recurrent keloid scars can be very challenging to treat. Kenalog - a steroid- is very commonly used to help prevent the regrowth of keloids. In some cases 5-fu may be used as well to treat bad keloids. The doses are usually very small and safe. You should discuss your concerns with your surgeon. ...Read more

I had the kenalog injection yesterday for allergic rhinnitis. Post nasal drip has not cleared. Should kenalog have worked by now?

I had the kenalog injection yesterday for allergic rhinnitis. Post nasal drip has not cleared. Should kenalog have worked by now?

Not likely: Steroids have a delayed onset of action due to the mechanism of how they work. If the allergy symptoms are significant, it may take even longer to see significant relief. In the U.S. The use of injectable steroids for the treatment of allergic rhinitis has fallen out of favor due to the risks and the availability of effective nose sprays. An allergist can provide a plan without those risks! ...Read more

Probably bruise: This is probably a bruise. If it is red and raised it could be infected. I would call the doctors office who performed the shot. Allergy to kenalog would be unusual. Use antihistamines such as fexofenadine and a steroid nasal spray such as fluticasone to treat your allergy symptoms, fewer side effects than a steroid injection. ...Read more
