Discussions that mention hydrocortisone

Allergies board

I am in UK. I have got worse over the years. I used to be a sun worshipper but now I have to cover as much of my body as possible. I had a terrible time abroad too and ended up on anti histamines and hydrocortisone (some second honeymoon!!) Can a GP arrange to be tested for your condition. How do they differentiate it from prickly heat etc? How much will it cost to go private and is the treatment 100% effective?? good luck and do let is know how you get on
