This is probably a hormonal issue - for years now, since my first pregnancy 30 years ago, I have had hive outbreak reactions to many medications. The worst reaction is to Prednisone, but I also react to anything that stimulates my metabolism. The most recent on was to the new acia berry extract! How ridiculous is that?? I also have the same reaction to naprosyn, but I can take naproxen sodium (Aleve) just fine.
I am menopausal, but when I was having menstrual cycles, I sometimes would break out at certain times during the month when hormonal levels would change.
Any idea what chemical or hormone might cause my reactions? The main thing that worries me is my allergy to steroids because they treat SO many illness with those.
