... 2 yrs??? I have 7 housecats that I discovered have worms. One Dr. said I might have worm eggs in my skin and another Dr. said NO. Im worming the cats, and my arms are bound up to stop from scratching. The bumps heal over the top, but leave a raised lump. I eventually scratch it even with the skin, apply medication, and it heals over starting atvthe top again with scar tissue. My skin breaks open easily.. Biopsy report will take 2 weeks. Anyone have side effects from Prednisone like this?? Thank you
No. You may have a fungus or parasite. Scabies might be the thing.
Sores heal slower on prednisone. My doc says that anything that does not improve within a week or becomes inflamed means a trip in to see her.
Cats carry a number of diseases, especially if they are allowed outside, as I suspect yours are. Cat scratch fever comes to mind. It is not just the name of a song. It is an actual disease than can make you extremely ill when on prednisone. Be sure your pets receive all vaccinations and stay inside to protect your health.
