Full body itching AFTER cortisone injection

Has anyone ever had a cortisone shot and developed itching all over after. I had a cortisone shot in my shoulder 2 days ago and today I woke up itching all over.

I thought this is so strange since cortisone is supposed to have the opposite effect. The itching is mostly on my arms and legs. It's annoying, but not driving me crazy. It's Fri. night on a holiday weekend. I feel silly to call the ortho dr. especially if it is some type of weird cooincidence, unrelated to the injection.

I guess I'll take some Benadryl and get some sleep.

Would love to be able to sit on the couch for a few days, get a good book, and do NOTHING!

You can be allergic to anything. My coworker just had a MAJOR allergic reaction to Zyrtec. Yes, the thing you are supposed to take when having an allergic reaction. It could have been to the active ingredient or to anything in the pills. Same with you, it could be the cortisone itself or it could be something in the liquid that cortisone is in. Since that eventually goes systemic, it does not surprise me that the itching is all over. I guess it's good that you don't have a rash.
