I was taking Toradal which is a NSAID and two days later stated to get hives. I spoke with the Pharmacist and they said it was no problem unless i had trouble breathing. Since i was in pain i kept taking it for a week until i could see my doctor.
I seen him and he said it looks like a reaction and stop taking it it should clear up in 2 weeks, problem is it was getting worse and spreading and parts look like a sunburn and hurts.
I had a appointment with a Dermostologist because it keeps spreading and itching and hurting usually where i'm laying down (back of legs and back of arms) He told me to take 40mg of Prednisone.
It has been three days and it's still spreading now onto my face.
How long does it take for the Prednisone to kick on and stop the hives from spreading.
I also have Candida (yeast) still waiting for the biopsy to find what it is.
