Hello and welcome, I am happy to help you today.
Why have you been prescribed prednisone and at what dose?
Suspected of having Crohns after having a CT scan Last Thursday Evening. (went in with severe abdominal cramps)
Alright. The itching may be due to an allergic response to prednisone and should go away when you stop taking it....
Till then, you can take benadryl orally to reduce the allergic reaction...
Narrowed and inflamed Ileum found. (also found 4.5 years ago after becoming very anemic) Dosage prescribed was 40 mg once daily, but I called and asked if I could take 30 instead after a few days.
Yeah..so gradually your doctor will taper off the prednisone and and the itching should disappear but you can start taking benadryl now available OTC.
