    Skin issue seems to be an allergy with a skin infection in the allergy

    Hi, I'm able to eat. I'm not itching-the red swelling is going down. I'm on beaucoup prednisone for the weird allergy and a super strong antibiotic. We don't know if this is a cure, but it's certainly relief. I can sleep, eat, and talk without my lips being on fire.

    When I saw my dermatologist Tues. I looked like somebody punched me in the mouth- my bottom lip was so swelled that my lower lip was black and blue on down my chin. Dr Garg my radiology oncologist said that the pics he saw were horrible, and I told him they were tame compared to what I was Tues.

    It's amazing what a few days with sleep and food can do for a person.

    Thank you to all of my friends that have been rooting for me- This began in May with a sinus infection-and my doctor refused to give me an antibiotic because of my age according to medicare regs/guidelines. This is my 2nd antibiotic course since she prescribed montelukast. It did a job on me. The first antibiotic was prescribed for my sinus infection 2 week

      tonight levi came in and said-- Grandma-- your face looks good---I so hope that it's a cure. I never liked meat balls- especially meatball subs. With this problem, I just had to have an Italian meatball. Today I fixed up Italian meat balls, and i had a sub---I could eat it without my lips hurting it itching.
