Adverse reaction to Kenalog

I had 3 shots of Kenalog injected into my scalp on September 22nd. Within three weeks I noticed 2 "dents" atrophy where the dermatologist injected into my scalp. I have discoloration around the site as well but worst of all I have lost SO much hair on my temples from the shot. My dermatologist admitted the atrophys is from the injection as well as the discoloration. She acted dumbfounded that my hair had thinned out to almost nothing around the sites injected (temples & back of my head hairline). So I went in for another opinion this past week. They did a scalp biopsy that I'm anxiously awaiting on. I have not officially been diagnosed with anything yet! The first dermatologist thought my hair line may be thinning due to alopecia and she told me we would try injection...

kenolog ruined my life

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 f...

Kenalog VS Predisone

Which is safer Kenalog or Predsione? I have taken Kenalog shots for years but my doctor retired and my new doctor prescribed Predsione. Any reason? ## You may be able to compare the two drugs and their side effect profiles by vising the drug information pages for Kenalog and Prednisone. Hope it helps. ## Overall, it really just depends on how you react to any given medication, and what your doctor prefers. One might work better for you than another, but the only thing you can do is try them and see. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and lowered immune response. Can anyone else with experience chime in?

Kenalog of AA

I discovered a small bald spot on my head in Ausgust of 2017. I went to the dermatologist and received Kenalog shots after the PA looked at it and diagnosed me with alopecia. After the injection, i experienced pain and atrophy. I went back next month to find my spot had grown 2 inches and was almost in tears. She rushed the whole visit and asked if i wanted more injections. Stupidly, i agreed. I was just scared of loosing it all. Now im loosing hair like crazy. I wish i had found all this information and steered clear of the drug! I advise anyone to do some research first, and consider the benefits and risks. Good luck ## Oh my goodness! I am seriously experiencing literally the same exact thing. I literally have a bald spot on the back side of my head from the Kenalog. I really don...

Kenalog Inj. and hair loss

I experienced a severe adverse reaction of 75% hair loss after having a Kenalong inj. to my thumb on 3/1/17. Stay away from this poison! I had to buy a wig; and my hair is still progressively falling after the 12 weeks! Dehumanizing! ## That is odd, it is actually used to treat hair loss. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including administration site irritation, redness, dryness, and flaking. Are you on any other medications? How long after receiving it did the hair loss start? How old are you?

kenalog in orabase

I used Kenalog in Orabase for mouth ulcers, but SA discontinued it, I can only get from N Zeeland and that is difficult, where can I get something with the same ingredients, someone also said Tetracycline antibiotics can help for my Stomatiis? ## Also used the same for severe mouth ulcers, was so useful. Can't get it in the UK but I would buy it if i knew where to get it from.

Kenalog injection - nothing - no results pro or con

I was given a Kenalog 40 injection for a systemic skin rash (starts below the skin). After a week there was no change. Rash on arms and some on other parts either remained the same or spread slightly. Is it possible to be resistant to it. I'm 6' 1", 198 pounds, and, otherwise, in good health. In past several years I've been prescribed oral course of Prednisone which worked. However, even with a tapered dosage over 10 - 12 days the rash would rebound after about a week of clear skin.
