What Does A 10 Mg Prednisone Bolus Look Like
Hello I developed raised red spots that look like guttate psoriasis around my torso after taking prednisone 1 year ago could u help please?
Prednisone is a synthetic cortisone. The body makes cortisone, a natural hormone made in adrenal glands. The body converts it to Hydrocortisone to become active. 25 mg of cortisone has about same effect as 5 mgm prednisone. The average person would produce 3-6 mg of pred daily. So why use a substitute?

I was diagnosed with overuse injuries in several tendon. After my 10 day dose of prednisone, will my injuries heal, or is this just masking the pain?
Will heal: The Prednisone course is useful for the acute period of inflammation and pain reduction. It does not cure the problem and should not be used for anything more than a short course. Rest and physical therapy are the mainstay therapies of overuse/underuse syndromes and healing can take many months to a year. Resume physical activities slowly and consistently, with a plan to build up gradually. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
