I don't know what that could be. Could they be flea bites???? I know Prednisone can cause acne, but never heard of hives. Think it might be time to call your doctor. Good Luck!

stephanie...I get lots of weird skin reactions. Could be viral, could be allergy. i recommend getting in to your doc and maybe a dermatologist. Mostly because I would love to hear what answers you get! I had hive like bumps that were attributed to three different viral diseases so far and no one had a real answer...however steroids got rid of them once.
Oh and the if the itching is real bad before you can get into a doc, try one Clariten D plus one Pepcid (both over the counter). They are antihistamine A &B types and should help reduce the itching.
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....

nanners - the kitties are flea free. i have had flea bites and these are huge in comparison :( and it was funny cause my gi asked if i had any rashes and i said NO! i will ask him at my scope today.

habs - they don't itch at all and they are all different in size. ooooh variety! i am having an endoscopy done today so i will definitely ask my gi about it. i will let you know!
