Itchy : Hi Holly and all! Took ur... - Sticky Blood-Hugh...
Prednisone is a glucocorticoid medication mostly used to suppress the immune system and decrease inflammation in conditions such as asthma, COPD, and rheumatologic diseases, doesn't work the same as an antihistamine.
Deb, if it's getting worse, you must go back, don't suffer this on your own.
Are there any other symptoms?
They told me to bathe in cool water but so cold here I can’t imagine it! My eyes same and very itchy! I guess I must be patient and wait for bloodwork! I was hoping for a miracle with prednisone, but no such luck! It’s very hard for me to shower cuz of prosthetic leg! I have a chair, but very unsteady as I have a small old tub! Lol... I sit in tub to bathe and have hand held shower! I stopped scratching cuz it fruitless! It just gets worse when I scratch! Only scratch when I can’t help it! I just wonder if Sjogrens can cause this and maybe I’m just in a flare again! Hopefully that’s it and I’ll just keep on Truckin’
Yes sounds good Throuhout my life I’ve been on too many medications and think it’s taking its toll on me! I just want to stop all meds and give it to God! All these meds and stuf go thru the liver and who knows what damage they do! Thank you and I’m pretty tough! My poor hubby in Nursing home with Alzheimer’s and my son Keith With a form of mental Retardation called Williams Syndrome! He’s actually my stepson, but have him for 40 years and he’s mine! He too is age 63 and there is no data on his age because he’s lived past his life span, but he too is failing! I just need to be around for them to make sure they’re ok! It’s hard but life throws us some curves and we just must keep fighting! Some days I say when does it stop! We all have our troubles and I just give it to God when I don’t know what to do! Today is my pity party, tomorrow I’ll be up and about to fight it off! God Bless Y’all at this time and stay strong and healthy...
