Do I need another steroid shot?


Posted by cecgb039

My doctor thinks I had a delayed reaction to either the antibiotics or the pain medicine (percocet) following my partial hysterectomy surgery on July 20th.  11 days after the surgery, I had an allergic reaction to something (?).  Hives, swollen eyes, intense itch and burning al over my skin.  I was given a steroid shot in the ER, told to take Benadryl, and given a Medrol Pack (steroid in pill form?)  3 days into the treatment, the rash/hives is worse, and the intense burning and itching is back after it seemed to be clearing up the day following the trip to the ER.  Do I need to see my doctor again for another shot?
