  • I was treated for ALL in 1989 by the VA. It was service connected, so I was given a very aggressive 4 year treatment which included intra-thecal administration, as well as, a plethora of different drugs. I'm trying to find out all of the possible long-term side effects of all of these treatments.

  • D on Feb, 27, 2012:

    I was switched to an inhaler (Beclomethasone)a year and half ago and had a break out of erythema Multiforme a year ago. I had no idea what it was and by the time I was able to see a Dermatologist the blisters on my hands and feet had gone away. Now I've been having break outs every 3 months. Finally made it to see a dermatologist and had a biopsy done. I was diagnoised with Erythema Multiforme. They asked if I was on any new medications and of cource my response had been no. I did not even think about my asthma medication that I had started 6 months prior to my first breakout. They gave me acivlor to try and control the break out. I have been desparate trying to figure this out. I finally looked up my inhaler medication and the disease and bingo found several sites documenting the reaction with this medication. I am so glad "I" figured this out. Unfortunatley for me, I did mention I was on Asthma medication but it didn't click with the Derm Doc's I guess and they didn't bother to ask the name of the Medication I was taking.
