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
