Hello,

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

The symptoms seem to be related to an allergic reaction.It can be related to the epidural procedure.
I recommend using anti histamines such as Cetirizine 10 mg daily.
I also suggest using Betametasone cream for local application.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
