Yes, I had a Kenalog-40 L knee injection at 2:50pm

Yes, I had a Kenalog-40 L knee injection at 2:50pm on Wed. 10/24/18 and tonight at 10:00 pm I discovered that my cheeks and nose were red and warm to the touch . Could this be a reaction to the Kenalog more than 24 hrs. after the injection? My last kenalog injection was in 2014 and I did not have a reaction. I thought with joint steroid injections
85-90% of the medication remained localized and only a small amount was systemic. Breathing and B/P are stable,
HR 67.
