Steroids after an allergic rxn to peanuts
I recently had a severe rxn to peanut butter salad dressing which I thought was gravy. The doctor put me on a course of steroids, Prednisone. I had some side effects (sleeplessness, acne.) Then after I finished the course, I feel like my defense is down--my ringworm from 2 years ago reoccurred, and also a yeast infection. Plus my mouth has been reacting to all dairy products and cherries. i'm wondering if this is in connection to the steroids--has anyone else had this or a similar experience? any suggestions to combat this?
