I had mild psoriasis on my scalp, elbows, and a few on my legs. Within three days of being given an intramuscular injection of kenolog10 my hair began to fall out and I started getting these small dots in various places on my body. My dermatologist swears it is unrelated to my injection, but two months later I am covered head to toe psoriasis, including my face, and I have lost 80% of my hair. I have also been on my period for going on four weeks now. This stuff is pure poison!!!

Hello, Jackie! How are you? I am so very sorry about what you're going through.

Skin reactions like that certainly can be side effects of it, they are listed in the FDA detailed prescribing information, they just aren't very common, so they weren't able to provide a specific incident percentage for them.

And it has also been known to cause infection of the hair follicles with may explain your hair loss.

If your dermatologist won't listen to you, it may be best to consult a different doctor for assistance. However, it will most likely just be a matter of time, before this medication's affects wear off and things return to normal for you.

I'm not seeing anything about a prolonged period, but when you under so much stress, it really doesn't surprise me. Have you had that checked out by a doctor, yet?

Re: Candice (# 2)

I'm wondering the same thing. Kenalog injections Sept 22 and I've lost so much hair. I can't even function properly I'm so upset. I pray it grows back.
