In brief: What kind?
Allergy to steroids is extremely rare.
Side effects are common. What are your symptoms? If you don't have hives, you likely have a side effect and not a true allergy.

In brief: Stop it.
You may need benadryl (diphenhydramine).
I have not seen it, and the paradox is that steroids treat allergies. This may be a side-effect. There are quite a few corticosteroids available. Most would have Medrol allergy features. However with any steroid, taken orally or by injection, some people feel facial flushing (common), anxiety and/or sleep disturbance are allergies.They are benign short-lived side effects.
