    i have to have a Head MRI tonight. (i have had an issue with seizures and blood sugar...blah blah blah)

    because i have had a deadly reaction to a medication (anaphylactic) before, i have to pre-medicate for for the MRI with Prednisone, to protect me in case of anaphylaxis.

    took my first dose this a.m. guess what? i am covered with HIVES![​IMG]

    go figure! itchy, but funny! oh, did i say ITCHY!!![​IMG]

    (oh, before anyone wonders...did report it, took benedryl and will with each dose!)[​IMG]

    You sound like me - If I use neosporin I break out in blisters.

    i am super sensitive to everything. we're used to it here.

    deb, given your issue there i highly recommend NOT using preparation H for under eye bags, regardless of what the stylists to the stars say....[​IMG]:lau

    my MIL is allergic to red dye. That includes foods and meds. She has a heck of a time getting meds that are all white and food with no red dye in it.

    hope all goes well with the MRI.

    blue dye gives me seizures if I have it for several days in a row.

    Just be careful and take care of you! [​IMG]

    I broke out in hives twice in the last couple of years. Once on an airplane (ew), and the other when my makeup went bad. I also occassionally break out in hives when I drink Midori Sours... those hives are worth getting. [​IMG]
