Just wondering if anyone has heard of this before?

My DD had a level 1 reaction to Redi-Pred (no food or other meication taken in the hour before the Redi-Pred was fiven) but can take Pred-Mix.

I avoid the Redi-Pred, which is HARD with an asthmatic child, am mostly curious if other people have heard/know of this?

What is a level 1 reaction? Think you need to see a paediatric immunologist at a children's hospital so it can be properly investigated!

It may be a preservative or additive he is allergic to, rather than the prednisone itself.
