I've already visited a dermatology clinic and the doctor says there is no connection. However, my mother, who is also a doctor (a pediatrician) insists that she once had this friend who was met with an accident of pouring acid onto her hands resulting in a massive keloid scar upon recovery. This friend had to undergo several kenacort injections in order to lessen the keloid. Since these kenacort injections are considered a steroid, its devastating effect was multiple sclerosis. But I'm thinking perhaps there was another cause of her having multiple sclerosis not because of the series of injections. The doctor from the dermatology clinic said upon hearing my mother's story, that this was the first time she'd heard of it. But the doctor still says multiple sclerosis is unrelated to the kenacort injections. I'm now confused but still, I want to go thru with the kenacort injection treatment however my mother's story somewhat scared me. You see, I have a small coin-sized keloid scar on my arm (small lump & a bit red) and want to have it removed or lessened at the very least so that it won't be so visible anymore. :( I need more dermatologists opinions here. Would like to know what you think. Please enlighten me, thank you! Answered by Elba Tolchin 1 year ago.

The cause of MS isn't known, so there isn't any way to attribute the onset of MS to any particular cause. Besides, it doesn't make sense to think that that steroid injections might trigger MS. In MS, the immune system attacks the cells that insulate nerve fibers. Steroids suppress the immune reaction and Kenacort (and other steroids) have occasionally been used as MS treatments. Steroids are always a medication that should be avoided as much as possible due to numerous side effects. So regardless of any suspected connection with MS, there's good reason to avoid Kenecort. On the other hand, superficial injection of a steroid into a keloid scar is unlikely to cause systemic effects because the dosage needed to treat a scar is very low. You could ask your dermatologist about laser removal as an alternative, or maybe try laser on a small area to see how well it works. Answered by Lanell Coppola 1 year ago.

Sorry there is no link between vitamin intakes and MS and vitamin supplements are of no benefit in the disease. Believe me that have been tried! There was a fad a few years back for giving high dose B12. It came from nowhere with no evidence, but took a large study to disprove it and stop MS patients trooping in and demanding it. MS is very much a relapsing remitting disease, this means that all symptoms can disappear for a while, sometimes even permanently, even if you do nothing. This has always made it one of the top diseases for alternative therapists and quacks to make wild unsubstantiated claims.Even affected individuals who remit tend to broadcast so called cures. The only way one can tell if something actually helps is to do a large, statistically valid, double blind cross over trial. Individuals who recover are mostly undergoing spontaneous remission which has always been a feature of this disease. These studies are extremely difficult to carry out and also sometimes have ethical issues as well. Interferon, which does appear to have a modest effect on the rate of relapse in the rapidly progressive group of patients, struggled for a long time, with many intelligent neurologists questioning its efficacy. This was probably because it was difficult, with only low level advantage to get a large enough group of patients into a valid study to prove any advantage was statistically significant.

Can your face still swell from a couple of steroid injections 3 or 4 weeks ago? They were hip injections.?
I have bursitis and had 2 injections of steroids placed in my hips about 3 or 4 weeks ago. They didn't start working immediately but within the last week and a half. Four days ago my face started swelling and the swelling has not gone down. Just curious. Asked by Karmen Rubulcaba 1 year ago.

Steroid depot injection (eg. kenacort) remain in the body for weeks. Facial edema can occur with steroid. It should resolve in a week or two. If the bursitis recur, try injection into the bursa. Steroid acts locally and therefore less side effect, like facial edema. Bone specialist (orthopedic surgeon) could do the intra-lesional injection. www.stdskin.com Answered by Kasha Klingel 1 year ago.

Steroids, especially large doses (how many mg. did they give you?), can take time to leave the system. The swelling will likely subside when the steroids' effects are gone. Low dose (5-10 mg) steroids don't generally have the same effects on the face. Answered by Korey Rector 1 year ago.


Prednisone?
Asked by Shanelle Rovira 1 year ago.

GENERIC NAME: prednisone BRAND NAME: Deltasone, Orasone, Prednicen-M, Liquid Pred DRUG CLASS AND MECHANISM: Prednisone is an oral, synthetic (man-made) corticosteroid used for suppressing the immune system and inflammation. It has effects similar to other corticosteroids such as triamcinolone (Kenacort), methylprednisolone (Medrol), prednisolone (Prelone) and dexamethasone (Decadron). These synthetic corticosteroids mimic the action of cortisol (hydrocortisone), the naturally-occurring corticosteroid produced in the body by the adrenal glands. Corticosteroids have many effects on the body, but they most often are used for their potent anti-inflammatory effects, particularly in those conditions in which the immune system plays an important role. Such conditions include arthritis, colitis, asthma, bronchitis, certain skin rashes, and allergic or inflammatory conditions of the nose and eyes. Prednisone is inactive in the body and, in order to be effective, first must be converted to prednisolone by enzymes in the liver. Therefore, prednisone may not work as effectively in people with liver disease whose ability to convert prednisone to prednisolone is impaired PRESCRIPTION: yes GENERIC AVAILABLE: yes PREPARATIONS: Tablets of 2.5, 5, 10, 20, and 50 mg. Oral solution or syrup of 5mg/5ml STORAGE: Store at room temperature 20-25°C (68-77°F), and keep away from moisture. PRESCRIBED FOR: Prednisone is used in the management of inflammatory conditions or diseases in which the immune system plays an important role. Since prednisone is used in so many conditions, only the most common or established uses are mentioned here. Prednisone most often is used for treating several types of arthritis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, systemic lupus, allergic reactions, asthma and severe psoriasis. It also is used for treating leukemias, lymphomas, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura and autoimmune hemolytic anemia. Corticosteroids, including prednisone, are commonly used to suppress the immune system and prevent the body from rejecting transplanted organs. Prednisone is used as replacement therapy in patients whose adrenal glands are unable to produce sufficient amounts of cortisol. DOSING: The initial dose of prednisone varies depending on the condition being treated and the age of the patient. The starting dose may be from 5 to 60 mg per day and often is adjusted based on the response of the condition being treated. Corticosteroids typically do not produce immediate effects and must be used for several days before maximal effects are seen. It may take much longer before conditions respond to treatment. Prolonged therapy with prednisone causes the adrenal glands to atrophy and stop producing cortisol. When prednisone is discontinued after a period of prolonged therapy, the dose of prednisone must be tapered (lowered gradually) to allow the adrenal glands time to recover. (See side effects.) It is recommended that prednisone be taken with food. DRUG INTERACTIONS: Prednisone may interact with estrogens and phenytoin (Dilantin). Estrogens may reduce the action of enzymes in the liver that break down (eliminate) the active form of prednisone, prednisolone. As a result, the levels of prednisolone in the body may increase and lead to more frequent side effects. Phenytoin increases the activity of enzymes in the liver that break down (eliminate) prednisone and thereby may reduce the effectiveness of prednisone. Thus, if phenytoin is being taken, an increased dose of prednisone may be required. PREGNANCY: Corticosteroids cross the placenta into the fetus. Compared to other corticosteroids, however, prednisone is less likely to cross the placenta. Chronic use of corticosteroids during the first trimester of pregnancy may cause cleft palate. NURSING MOTHERS: Corticosteroids are secreted in breast milk and can cause side effects in the nursing infant. Prednisone is less likely than other corticosteroids to be secreted in breast milk, but it may still pose a risk to the infant. SIDE EFFECTS: Side effects of prednisone and other corticosteroids range from mild annoyances to serious, irreversible damage, and they occur more frequently with higher doses and more prolonged treatment. Side effects include retention of sodium (salt) and fluid, weight gain, high blood pressure, loss of potassium, headache and muscle weakness. Prednisone also causes puffiness of the face (moon face), growth of facial hair, thinning and easy bruising of the skin, impaired wound healing, glaucoma, cataracts, ulcers in the stomach and duodenum, worsening of diabetes, irregular menses, rounding of the upper back ("buffalo hump"), obesity, retardation of growth in children, convulsions, and psychiatric disturbances. The psychiatric disturbances include depression, euphoria, insomnia, mood swings, personality changes, and even psychotic behavior. Prednisone suppresses the immune system and, therefore, increases the frequency or severity of infections and decreases the effectiveness of vaccines and antibiotics. Prednisone may cause osteoporosis that results in fractures of bones. Patients taking long-term prednisone often receive supplements of calcium and vitamin D to counteract the effects on bones. Calcium and vitamin D probably are not enough, however, and treatment with bisphosphonates such as alendronate (Fosamax) and risedronate (Actonel) may be necessary. Calcitonin (Miacalcin) also is effective. The development of osteoporosis and the need for treatment can be monitored using bone density scans. Answered by Malka Munks 1 year ago.

The cause of MS isn't known, so there isn't any way to attribute the onset of MS to any particular cause. Besides, it doesn't make sense to think that that steroid injections might trigger MS. In MS, the immune system attacks the cells that insulate nerve fibers. Steroids suppress the immune reaction and Kenacort (and other steroids) have occasionally been used as MS treatments. Steroids are always a medication that should be avoided as much as possible due to numerous side effects. So regardless of any suspected connection with MS, there's good reason to avoid Kenecort. On the other hand, superficial injection of a steroid into a keloid scar is unlikely to cause systemic effects because the dosage needed to treat a scar is very low. You could ask your dermatologist about laser removal as an alternative, or maybe try laser on a small area to see how well it works. Answered by Emilie Beesley 1 year ago.

Sorry there is no link between vitamin intakes and MS and vitamin supplements are of no benefit in the disease. Believe me that have been tried! There was a fad a few years back for giving high dose B12. It came from nowhere with no evidence, but took a large study to disprove it and stop MS patients trooping in and demanding it. MS is very much a relapsing remitting disease, this means that all symptoms can disappear for a while, sometimes even permanently, even if you do nothing. This has always made it one of the top diseases for alternative therapists and quacks to make wild unsubstantiated claims.Even affected individuals who remit tend to broadcast so called cures. The only way one can tell if something actually helps is to do a large, statistically valid, double blind cross over trial. Individuals who recover are mostly undergoing spontaneous remission which has always been a feature of this disease. These studies are extremely difficult to carry out and also sometimes have ethical issues as well. Interferon, which does appear to have a modest effect on the rate of relapse in the rapidly progressive group of patients, struggled for a long time, with many intelligent neurologists questioning its efficacy. This was probably because it was difficult, with only low level advantage to get a large enough group of patients into a valid study to prove any advantage was statistically significant.

Can your face still swell from a couple of steroid injections 3 or 4 weeks ago? They were hip injections.?
I have bursitis and had 2 injections of steroids placed in my hips about 3 or 4 weeks ago. They didn't start working immediately but within the last week and a half. Four days ago my face started swelling and the swelling has not gone down. Just curious. Asked by Elliott Sakelaris 1 year ago.

Steroid depot injection (eg. kenacort) remain in the body for weeks. Facial edema can occur with steroid. It should resolve in a week or two. If the bursitis recur, try injection into the bursa. Steroid acts locally and therefore less side effect, like facial edema. Bone specialist (orthopedic surgeon) could do the intra-lesional injection. www.stdskin.com Answered by Kieth Fairclough 1 year ago.

Steroids, especially large doses (how many mg. did they give you?), can take time to leave the system. The swelling will likely subside when the steroids' effects are gone. Low dose (5-10 mg) steroids don't generally have the same effects on the face. Answered by Ester Louviere 1 year ago.


Prednisone?
Asked by Leo Windschitl 1 year ago.

GENERIC NAME: prednisone BRAND NAME: Deltasone, Orasone, Prednicen-M, Liquid Pred DRUG CLASS AND MECHANISM: Prednisone is an oral, synthetic (man-made) corticosteroid used for suppressing the immune system and inflammation. It has effects similar to other corticosteroids such as triamcinolone (Kenacort), methylprednisolone (Medrol), prednisolone (Prelone) and dexamethasone (Decadron). These synthetic corticosteroids mimic the action of cortisol (hydrocortisone), the naturally-occurring corticosteroid produced in the body by the adrenal glands. Corticosteroids have many effects on the body, but they most often are used for their potent anti-inflammatory effects, particularly in those conditions in which the immune system plays an important role. Such conditions include arthritis, colitis, asthma, bronchitis, certain skin rashes, and allergic or inflammatory conditions of the nose and eyes. Prednisone is inactive in the body and, in order to be effective, first must be converted to prednisolone by enzymes in the liver. Therefore, prednisone may not work as effectively in people with liver disease whose ability to convert prednisone to prednisolone is impaired PRESCRIPTION: yes GENERIC AVAILABLE: yes PREPARATIONS: Tablets of 2.5, 5, 10, 20, and 50 mg. Oral solution or syrup of 5mg/5ml STORAGE: Store at room temperature 20-25°C (68-77°F), and keep away from moisture. PRESCRIBED FOR: Prednisone is used in the management of inflammatory conditions or diseases in which the immune system plays an important role. Since prednisone is used in so many conditions, only the most common or established uses are mentioned here. Prednisone most often is used for treating several types of arthritis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, systemic lupus, allergic reactions, asthma and severe psoriasis. It also is used for treating leukemias, lymphomas, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura and autoimmune hemolytic anemia. Corticosteroids, including prednisone, are commonly used to suppress the immune system and prevent the body from rejecting transplanted organs. Prednisone is used as replacement therapy in patients whose adrenal glands are unable to produce sufficient amounts of cortisol. DOSING: The initial dose of prednisone varies depending on the condition being treated and the age of the patient. The starting dose may be from 5 to 60 mg per day and often is adjusted based on the response of the condition being treated. Corticosteroids typically do not produce immediate effects and must be used for several days before maximal effects are seen. It may take much longer before conditions respond to treatment. Prolonged therapy with prednisone causes the adrenal glands to atrophy and stop producing cortisol. When prednisone is discontinued after a period of prolonged therapy, the dose of prednisone must be tapered (lowered gradually) to allow the adrenal glands time to recover. (See side effects.) It is recommended that prednisone be taken with food. DRUG INTERACTIONS: Prednisone may interact with estrogens and phenytoin (Dilantin). Estrogens may reduce the action of enzymes in the liver that break down (eliminate) the active form of prednisone, prednisolone. As a result, the levels of prednisolone in the body may increase and lead to more frequent side effects. Phenytoin increases the activity of enzymes in the liver that break down (eliminate) prednisone and thereby may reduce the effectiveness of prednisone. Thus, if phenytoin is being taken, an increased dose of prednisone may be required. PREGNANCY: Corticosteroids cross the placenta into the fetus. Compared to other corticosteroids, however, prednisone is less likely to cross the placenta. Chronic use of corticosteroids during the first trimester of pregnancy may cause cleft palate. NURSING MOTHERS: Corticosteroids are secreted in breast milk and can cause side effects in the nursing infant. Prednisone is less likely than other corticosteroids to be secreted in breast milk, but it may still pose a risk to the infant. SIDE EFFECTS: Side effects of prednisone and other corticosteroids range from mild annoyances to serious, irreversible damage, and they occur more frequently with higher doses and more prolonged treatment. Side effects include retention of sodium (salt) and fluid, weight gain, high blood pressure, loss of potassium, headache and muscle weakness. Prednisone also causes puffiness of the face (moon face), growth of facial hair, thinning and easy bruising of the skin, impaired wound healing, glaucoma, cataracts, ulcers in the stomach and duodenum, worsening of diabetes, irregular menses, rounding of the upper back ("buffalo hump"), obesity, retardation of growth in children, convulsions, and psychiatric disturbances. The psychiatric disturbances include depression, euphoria, insomnia, mood swings, personality changes, and even psychotic behavior. Prednisone suppresses the immune system and, therefore, increases the frequency or severity of infections and decreases the effectiveness of vaccines and antibiotics. Prednisone may cause osteoporosis that results in fractures of bones. Patients taking long-term prednisone often receive supplements of calcium and vitamin D to counteract the effects on bones. Calcium and vitamin D probably are not enough, however, and treatment with bisphosphonates such as alendronate (Fosamax) and risedronate (Actonel) may be necessary. Calcitonin (Miacalcin) also is effective. The development of osteoporosis and the need for treatment can be monitored using bone density scans. Answered by Earlene Yip 1 year ago.

Oral solution or syrup of 5mg/5ml STORAGE: Store at room temperature 20-25°C (68-77°F), and keep away from moisture. PRESCRIBED FOR: Prednisone is used in the management of inflammatory conditions or diseases in which the immune system plays an important role. Since prednisone is used in so many conditions, only the most common or established uses are mentioned here. Prednisone most often is used for treating several types of arthritis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, systemic lupus, allergic reactions, asthma and severe psoriasis. It also is used for treating leukemias, lymphomas, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura and autoimmune hemolytic anemia. Corticosteroids, including prednisone, are commonly used to suppress the immune system and prevent the body from rejecting transplanted organs. Prednisone is used as replacement therapy in patients whose adrenal glands are unable to produce sufficient amounts of cortisol. DOSING: The initial dose of prednisone varies depending on the condition being treated and the age of the patient. The starting dose may be from 5 to 60 mg per day and often is adjusted based on the response of the condition being treated. Corticosteroids typically do not produce immediate effects and must be used for several days before maximal effects are seen. It may take much longer before conditions respond to treatment. Prolonged therapy with prednisone causes the adrenal glands to atrophy and stop producing cortisol. When prednisone is discontinued after a period of prolonged therapy, the dose of prednisone must be tapered (lowered gradually) to allow the adrenal glands time to recover. (See side effects.) It is recommended that prednisone be taken with food. DRUG INTERACTIONS: Prednisone may interact with estrogens and phenytoin (Dilantin). Estrogens may reduce the action of enzymes in the liver that break down (eliminate) the active form of prednisone, prednisolone. As a result, the levels of prednisolone in the body may increase and lead to more frequent side effects. Phenytoin increases the activity of enzymes in the liver that break down (eliminate) prednisone and thereby may reduce the effectiveness of prednisone. Thus, if phenytoin is being taken, an increased dose of prednisone may be required. PREGNANCY: Corticosteroids cross the placenta into the fetus. Compared to other corticosteroids, however, prednisone is less likely to cross the placenta. Chronic use of corticosteroids during the first trimester of pregnancy may cause cleft palate. NURSING MOTHERS: Corticosteroids are secreted in breast milk and can cause side effects in the nursing infant. Prednisone is less likely than other corticosteroids to be secreted in breast milk, but it may still pose a risk to the infant. SIDE EFFECTS: Side effects of prednisone and other corticosteroids range from mild annoyances to serious, irreversible damage, and they occur more frequently with higher doses and more prolonged treatment. Side effects include retention of sodium (salt) and fluid, weight gain, high blood pressure, loss of potassium, headache and muscle weakness. Prednisone also causes puffiness of the face (moon face), growth of facial hair, thinning and easy bruising of the skin, impaired wound healing, glaucoma, cataracts, ulcers in the stomach and duodenum, worsening of diabetes, irregular menses, rounding of the upper back ("buffalo hump"), obesity, retardation of growth in children, convulsions, and psychiatric disturbances. The psychiatric disturbances include depression, euphoria, insomnia, mood swings, personality changes, and even psychotic behavior. Prednisone suppresses the immune system and, therefore, increases the frequency or severity of infections and decreases the effectiveness of vaccines and antibiotics. Prednisone may cause osteoporosis that results in fractures of bones. Patients taking long-term prednisone often receive supplements of calcium and vitamin D to counteract the effects on bones. Calcium and vitamin D probably are not enough, however, and treatment with bisphosphonates such as alendronate (Fosamax) and risedronate (Actonel) may be necessary. Calcitonin (Miacalcin) also is effective. The development of osteoporosis and the need for treatment can be monitored using bone density scans. Answered by Magnolia Dulemba 1 year ago.
