Dear janet,

Any food/ drug can potentially cause chicken
To the best of my knowledge, you are not at a greater risk by consuming chicken
However, if you are having an allergy, a RAST study or other studies to check for allergies are available

See a doctor who can perform these tests, investigate and tell you what is causing your problem

All the best.

I have recurrent clusters of painful white pimples on my face and lips . I just to the doctor and he told me the patch on my cheek was allergic dermatitis and put me on cortisone cream and two antibiotics. That seems to be helping the patch on my cheek, however now I have two more patches on my lips. What could this be?

I have a patient who was given a high dose of prednisone for 2 weeks, 20 mg/day or more. Subsequent to that, she is suffering from LPR, laryngo-pharyngeal reflux which is triggering her asthma. What can be done about restoring her stomach lining and LES functionality?

Hi. I just started taking 40mg a day of prednisone for my Crohn s. Have had Crohn s for twenty years...had 12in of small intestines removed twenty years ago. Was on prednisone before surgery for almost 3 years. Have not had any issues since surgery but was on antibiotic five weeks ago for ear infection. Started having so much nausea from antibiotic and did not go away after stopping antibiotic so family doctor said I needed to see my GI doctor. GI doctor is 95% sure that I have a little Crohn s inflammation. Doctor prescribed 40mg of prednisone for two weeks and then tapper down 10mg every two weeks for next 8 weeks. During the whole ear infection issue my anxiety flared up so family doctor put me on 20mg of Celexa, which I have been on before. Been on prednisone for five day now and have noticed little more nervousness and anxiety, particularly in morning when I wake up. Sleeping has not been good for weeks so started taking .5mg of clonazepam at bed time to help sleep. I know this is a lot of info but I guess I have a couple of questions: 1. I m assuming the nervousness is coming from prednisone, but will it decrease? 2. Is it a better time of day to be taking antibiotic and Celexa? Thanks

I was on prednisone for a month due to having h1n1 virus. I now have a horrible problem with heartburn which is causing me to have bad coughing fits to the point of gagging and coughing along with loss of appetite. My doctor has now put me on 300mg ranitidine once a day to take with dinner but the problem still persists at all hours of the day. What can I do?
