I was prescribed a 12 day course of Prednisone along with Benadryl and a Caladryl lotion. It’s subsided quite a bit, but hands and feet are still red and itchy, just not nearly as bad as last week. It took a good 3 days of treatment to get substantial relief.
Just finished my follow up regarding the rash post PRP. Nothing definitive can be determined, but he’s seen one reaction in the last 4 years. However the rash was limited to the scalp and lasted about a month. My rash was much more pronounced on my extremities and my scalp now looks normal. He’s going to follow up with the manufacturer as well as the rep for the anticoagulant used in the process. Again it’s quite possible my reaction was coincidental. I’ll let you know when I hear more.
The ACell definitely increases the efficacy of the PRP, however PRP without it is still effective. He continued treatments on the previous patient and saw results, just not as pronounced. Of course each person will respond differently.
