Customer Question

Started with swollen eye and itchy jaw last Monday. Saw Doctor who prescribed prednisone. Took total of 4 pills and experienced tingling tongue and lips. Saw Doctor again and told her of new symptoms of itchiness with rash on face and neck. Also experienced tingling after taking prednisone. Told to stop prednisone and try hydroxyzine for relief. Stomach is now covered with red welts, itchy and painful to touch. Asked if I could have Shingles and doctor said the rash didn't look like Shingles because there weren't blisters. Also now have some rash on inside of arms at crease. Rash of large welts are now wrapping halfway around front of my body at waist. Experiencing pain when showering when water hits the rash area. After seeing doctor three times this week, she is suggesting I see an allergist next week. Help...

Please stop looking at this time. I am being sent to allergist today by my primary doctor. Will see what he says.
