So I've been having this problem with these itchy bumps. Started as soon as I went off the prednisone. Started on the bottom of my foot again, just like it was earlier in the year. Then I started getting them on my face. They itch, kinda like my foot. They pop up, then go away in a few days. Then I get new ones. Reminds me of perhaps chronic hives?
Well tonight I felt one wayyyy too close to my lip. Pretty much on the edge of it. A few minutes later it felt hot in that spot, and started to swell up! I paniced because I didn't want another swollen clown lip like I had in May. I rushed and took a benedryl and put some ice on it. It's mostly gone down already. Which I guess means that helped. It's a little puffy still, and that small bump is still there.
I have no idea what is going on. An allergy? Am I flaring up again? Last time my SED rate was SUPER high when this happened, and a few days later the diarrhea symptoms of the flare kicked in. I just dread the thought of even calling the doctor again. I feel like I should just put up a tent in the man's waiting room!
