Cortizone (hydrocortisone) shot needed. I am scared I will have a reaction to it. Has anyone else ever have a reaction?

In brief: Fear overrated
Cortisone reactions are extremely unlikely.
Cortisone is one of the medications used to prevent and treat severe allergy. Local irritant reaction possible but generally mild and and transient.
