HELP!! I need relief for intense itching
5 days ago I started itching all over my body. Not sure if it was a drug allergy (Doxycycline) or an allergic reaction to wearing latex gloves a work. First, I tried to medicate myself with Benadryl Cream and capsules. NO relief. Ended up visiting the ER for a shot of Benadryl and a prescription of Prednisone to be taken for 1 week. The prednisone helps temporarily but in a few hrs. the itching comes back. How long does it take for prednisone to work completely? What creams, etc. can I try in the meantime?
ANY suggestions will be sincerely appreciated.
