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.

An allergist can provide a plan without those risks! ...Read more

I had a kenalog injection this afternoon for allergies. Since they the area around my neck have felt sore and weak. Should i be worried?

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
