unknown skin allergy?

Approximately 10 days after botox and juvederm injections, face, mostly cheeks and forehead became inflamed, red, itchy, burning with bumps and rash. Derm who did injections said rash looks like allergic dermatitis of some kind, likely to some product i used, prescribed 30 mg cortisone and steroidal creams to taper down over 10 days. I have not used anything since but cool water  face and neck. On day 5 of tapering cortisone now woke up with huge swollen red itchy eyelids and itchy bumpy rash on chest - but face rash has mostly cleared. Eyes were so swollen I could hardly open them. What could this be? Never had skin allergies in my life & have never been allergic to anything in environment. Derm says this has no relationship to botox or juvederm.
