I had an allergic reaction to some facial cleanser four days ago. The day after (three days ago), I went to the doctor and was prescribed Xyzal, Hydroxyzine (sp), and Prednisone. After taking this medication for two days, my face began to clear up; however, I began feeling much worse. My knuckles on both hands turned purple, and so did my nails and nail beds. I also have pain in my lower back.
When I went back to the doctor, my blood pressure was 177/105, which is extremely abnormal for me. The doctor then used a wipe and removed much of the purple from my hands and said that I had just touched something that gave me a rash, but I have not touched anything abnormal. Plus, after a few minutes, the purple color came back to my knuckles, yet not as intense.
Can anyone tell me what this is or what to do about it??
