Of course I have. I never questioned using it
AFTER/DURING a reaction. My questions pertains to
using it as a preventive. I have certainly never
used cortisone cream or any other steroid, for
that matter, before I had a reason to.

I'm just curious about using a steroid as a
preventive again vaccine reactions. What does it
do to prevent reactions? I'm trying to learn.
Isn't that what this list is all about? There's
nothing more to it than that. If this is too
touchy a subject, consider it closed on my part.
