Prednisone advice please
I have at least temporarily given up trying to find an allergist who specializes in peanut allergies so I am counting on you guys to helpme out here.
How effective and reliable is prednisone in preventing a biphasic reaction? Let's say that my dd has a mild reaction due to cross contamination and we successfully treat her with benadryl. We give her prednisone and put her to bed an hour or 2 after her exposure. Should we be comfortable with that? Without the prednisone, I think I would stay awake staring at her. With it, could I just sleep next to her and be confident she would not have a second reaction?
