After blood tests and stool samples I tested positive for E. Coli…so my husband and I got a n appointment with a dr. Who was very thorough and said there is usually an underlying immune problem to pick up E,. Coli…and did lots of tests and an Ultrasound of my abdomen…nothing showed up….they both said I should have a Colonoscopy….said to go on bland diet and not eat gluten which I had already started because I have lots of extended family with Celiac disease, take Tylenol 3 for pain and at night with my sleep me.
The human body has a unique defense system called the immune system. The task of immune system is to fight germs and protect the body from infections and diseases. The immune system can sometimes lead to allergic reactions which are nothing but false alarms in most of the cases. Sneezing, swelling, runny nose, itching, asthma or rashes are few of the symptoms that can be caused by allergies. Allergies can be diagnosed by skin and blood tests. Allergy shots, medicines and avoidance of allergens are few of the treatments. Steroid shot for allergies is one such treatment for allergic reactions. For those who don’t know, steroids are man-made medications with anabolic-androgenic steroids (a male sex hormone) and anti-inflammatory corticosteroids as its main types.
Thank you for your question dipash1101. I am sorry to hear about your situation. Kybella is the first and thus-far only FDA-approved non-surgical injectable treatment for the double chin. SculpSure is a non-invasive body contouring device using infrared light from a laser. Theoretically the inflammatory process that occurs after a Kybella treatment stimulates collagen formation to tighten the skin. Steroids work as anti-inflammatory medications. Therefore there may be a possibility that there may be reduced tightening in the area. With SculpSure the inflammatory process helps remove the fat cells so anti-inflammatory medications may possibly slow this down. If my patient had a steroid shot after such treatments I would tell her not to worry.
