Day 4: Stop taking Methylprednisolone 4mg. Injected 25mg Benedryl and steroids through IV. Prescription: Prednisone, Cetirizine, Pepcid
Day 5: Worst rashes, hives, anxiety, uneasy stomach.

Day 7: stop taking Pepcid. Anxiety and uneasy stomach was gone. But still more rashes. Less swollen of face
Day 8: continue
Day 9:In contact with dust and pollen. All symptoms came back. I got Benedryl through an IV again but no steroids. Stop taking prednisone.
