Prednisone alternative for Erythema Induratum (Nodular Vasculitis)?

I was recently diagnosed (pending a few final blood tests to rule out any other possible autoimmune disorder) Erythema Induratum, or Nodular Vasculitis of the Non-TB variety. My rheumatologist informed me that I will very likely be placed on prednisone for an uncertain amount of time. Has anyone else been diagnosed with this same ailment? Where you placed on prednisone? What were the results? Does anyone know of any alternatives? I did some googling and found that some patients have shown some success by taking a gold supplement rather than the prednisone, but the side effects sound almost as awful. Any guidance or anything would be greatly appreciated! Answered by Cassi Huntsberry 1 year ago.

"Bed rest with systemic steroids may be indicated. Potassium iodide (Thyro Block) is sometimes taken orally, with high efficacy; however, this therapy requires caution when used in children or in patients with thyroid disease." This is from Emedicine. I don't know about using gold; is it an "alternative" treatment? Answered by Therese Orcholski 1 year ago.

I am a white male that has had nodular vasculitis (non TB version) for over 10 years. I did take oral prednisone with success after the first bad episode and after being diagnosed. Since then, my outbreaks would just be during the summer time. For those I have been successfully treated with Kenalog shots (prednisone) in the problem area for many years, but of recent, that treatment is not working as well. Also keep in mind that Kenalog shots will thin your skin a bit. I have also tried potassium iodide (SSKI drops). For me, the SSKI drops has not worked but I have read in some people it helps. This disease can be very debilitating and painful. I am currently dealing with a round of these nodules around my ankles. That is the primary area I have had outbreaks. Currently, I have had issues for the last 6 months and can't seem to go into remission. I am about to take a round of oral prednisone but am leery it may just return after finishing it. Some advice - do wear compression socks, don't over do it or exercise during episodes (so take it easy), elevate feet as much as possible and try to stay as stress free as possible. I keep praying this will go into permanent remission, but for me, its been 10 long years. Good luck! Answered by Lonna Rougeaux 1 year ago.

Prednisolone has been properly used corticosteroid, with intense glucocorticoid interest, for some 50 years. that's risk-free and often existence saving, although like countless drugs it has skill facet consequences. you may desire to bear in recommendations that the physique is chock finished of many varieties of steroids of its own. If mum replaced into given prednisolone for below a week that's plenty extra probable that her an infection replaced into unrelated to its use. Answered by Liane Dottery 1 year ago.


KI -potassium iodide. What is the STOCK NAME & the CLASSICAL NAME of KI?
would the stock name be potassium (I) iodide? would it even have a classical name? Asked by Adaline Lefort 1 year ago.

Sometimes KI is referred to as Organic Iodine, which is the closest I can find to a classical name. SSKI (a saturated solution of KI) is used for treating fungal infections. registered brand names include: Iostat™, Pima®, SSKI®, Thyro-block®, ThyroShield Answered by Harley Sponsler 1 year ago.

WTF. K-Dur is a prescription product. Because potassium is never anything but a +1 ion you don't need the (I) It has always been and always will be potassium iodide. No difference. Answered by Fred Schnepf 1 year ago.
