Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Usually a epidural shot consists of steroid and a local anesthetic agent

Some people can get an allergic reaction to the anesthesia

If you don't have any breathing problem you can take an anti histamine like cetirizine or chlorpheniramine

This should help in relieving your symptom

Good luck
