Prednisone should not be prescribed long-term. There is a wide array of side effects with some of them permanent.
Have you been allergy tested for food as well with the IGG blood tests? If not, you need to do this ASAP.
Yes, I have had allergy tests and blood tests done.
I was found to be allergic to tree pollens, molds, weed pollen, and dust mites. My allergy doctor told me tree pollen were causing my "hives" but there have not been any tree pollen in my area since early September so it was concluded that it was not the cause.
Everything came back normal from my blood tests, but my IgA, I was told was a little "off" and one of the nurse practioners at my dermatologist's office told me I should have another one done to look into it to see if it effected my condition, but after my biopsy came back and was told it was an allergy form of eczema and since it did not look like eczema, the leading doctor in the practice insisted on seeing me, and brushed off my condition as bed bugs when I know it is not bed bugs, since my apartment has been checked for them, I get them in the middle of the day even when I'm not in my apartment, and they did not start in my apartment. So, I have not gone for another follow up blood test then because my dermatologist feels it is not necessary.
