Re: [IP] Hives?

Hi Summer, I got hives recently from an antibiotic, Keflex. I was prescribed
Prednisolone by the doctor, of course. I went through one pack and started
up again even worse, the second time around. Was prescribed Adderax? plus a
antacid-somehow they are supposed to get rid of hives. That didn't work, now
I am on my second dose pack of Prednisolone - I now get an occasional hive
(I have two days left of the medication) here and there. Hives are a pain,
the prednisolone did raise my blood sugar and messed up some sites - It was
a challenge finding new and interesting sites where hives were not present.
take care Sharon B
