Question: 6 days ago my lips swelled up and my eyes swelled shut I had prednisone and it took 40mg to get it down. It came back in about 12 hours and took more prednisone and I had hives on my neck , under arms and in the groin. Went to a doctor and he prescribed 40mg of prednisone daily for three days. That has run out and my syptoms are coming back. Have stopped eating all new foods and supplements 5 days ago. Also have noticed a cough. I take 81mg of asa daily could this be from allergy to asp[irin?
