I hate it when the husband is right
Do you think I can go by myself & be able to drive home or should I take husband w/me ...not sure how something like this is treated
Will do. Will log on later & let you know how it plays out.
Hi Doc - it was a good thing I went to urgent care. Needed injection of Solumedrol (?sp) & Benadryl. They also rx'd antibiotic to insure no cellulitis infection. Doc said it didn't look infected but we didn't want to take a chance.
Sent home w/Prednisone 20mgx3/day tapering down to 2/day in couple of days then 1 for a couple days. They also said I could take 50mg of Benadryl (I have 25mg capsules so in other words take 2 at a time).
Question on side effects - took Prednisone & Benadryl dose same time this morning and within 1/2hr a lot of redness in face & hot, hot, hot. Then this 'aft when I took another dose of Benadryl alone same thing happened. I've used Benadryl for years during allergy season but only taking 1 - 25mg cap at a time. Does this mean I'm allergic to Benadryl or is it a known side effect at higher dose?
I'll back off to the regular dose of 1 x 25mg.
And husband has orders to do wasp nest patrol around the outside of house this coming weekend! Don't want this experience again.
Thanks for all your great advice
