I have swell on one side of my throat and I have taken benadryl but its still spreading. i have predisone to take but can I take it with a runny nose or might it make me get sick since it knocks out my immune system.

If you are having an allergic reaction to something, especially if it involves your neck, you should go to the ER incase it is something more serious.

Go to the ER pronto. If you have an EPI-Pen, USE IT. ANd dont mess around. If you give me rocephen, I break into hives and my airway goes restricted I have only a few minutes to react or I am dead. I'm just thankful I asked my doctoran to test it in his office and keep me on obversation! (I asked for obversation cuz I'm allergic to a lot of medications). That saved my life on getting him to keep me on obversation and having an Epi Pen on hand. I ran out of the room the first sign of my throat and told a nurse and showed her my epi pen she grabbed it injected it and ran for my doctor who was in my room real fast. He stayed with me til it went away.
