ITP Support Association


I'm new on here but just wondering if anyone can please help me out.

My doctor has just put me on a short course of Prednisone (taking 15mg a day for 5 days due to an allergic reaction which has caused a horrible rash). I'm currently on day 4 and my fingernails and toenails are all really sore and sensitive. Like it hurts to walk when your toes press up against the end of your shoe etc. I know this sounds really weird and from looking online I can't find anyone else who has experienced the same thing. Is anyone able to offer an explanation of let me know how I can relieve this?!

Thanks in advance for any help you can give :-)

I didn't have that side effect when taking Prednisone. Go back to your GP and let them know... there are other steriods they can give you.

Good luck


Good advice from Polyangel. We are all different and react in different ways to drugs. If in doubt, ask for a referral to an ITP centre specialising in ITP. Look at the itp association web site and search on forum and you will find a list of centers around the uk. Good luck.
