But then almost two weeks later a started getting a rash in the same spot on both hands, right where the Kenalog was injected.

I have had ongoing bouts of granuloma annulare / actinic granuloma for a number of years now. The most effective treatment has been extremely small amounts of Kenolog injected directly into the individual eruptions which present themselves, primarily, on sun-exposed skin. This therapy is administered anywhere from every 30 to 90 days, dependent upon the severity of outbreaks. I've tried PUV ... Show Full Comment

I have horrible allergies and have been receiving this shot once a year for probably 10 years. I would totally recommend this to anyone who suffers seasonal allergies. Symptoms disappear within 24 hours and will not be back until after the freeze.

Comment:
I received 2 Kenalog injections for a herniated disc. I was never told the side effects that could occur. I have had vision changes, mood swings, depression, weight gain, fluid retention, dizziness, migraines, and my hands have been shaking so bad that I could not do my job. I am a registered nurse and luckily I recognized the side effects from the steroid and asked the anestheologist about them. ... Show Full Comment
