Wife has a HUGE rash after cortisone shot yesterday
My wife has Scleroderma Reynard’s, Lupus, GRD, and arthritis. She had an appointment with her rheumatologist yesterday and had a cortisone shot in her left knee (arthritis there, in pain, it locks up on her).
This morning she when she woke up, she had a rose colored rash from her jaw line down to her breasts! Terribly itchy. No “pustules”. A flat irritated skin.
We think she had an allergic reaction to the cortisone. She’s going to all the rheumatologist to see what she can do and to have it her records that she is now allergic to cortisone.
Is there anything that she can take other than Benadryl so that she can get some relief from it? Is there anything she should be getting to "cure" it. Is there anything she shouldn't be doing so that it won't spread?
Honestly, just like Rosanna Rosanna Dana (Gilda Radner) said, “if it isn’t one thing, it’s another”.
