This summary describes your symptoms, but there's more to the explanation for these symptoms. Once you became exposed to pet dander, your body's inflammatory response has flared up and your immune system response kicked in. As part of this response, your body starts generating antibodies called IgE antibodies to fight the activation of B cells. This battle ultimately leads to mediators, like leukotrienes, histamines, and prostaglandins, getting involved. These mediators are what cause increased cell permeability, which you experience as heightened mucus production and smooth muscle contraction originated from the symptoms of asthma: runny nose, watery eyes, and persistent cough.
In an embryofetal development study in pregnant rabbits, beclomethasone dipropionate administration during organogenesis from gestation days 7 to 16 at subcutaneous doses equal to and greater than times the MRHDID in adults (on a mg/m 2 basis at maternal doses of mg/kg/day and higher) produced external and skeletal malformations and embryolethal effects (increased fetal resorptions). There were no effects in fetuses of pregnant rabbits administered a subcutaneous dose times the MRHDID in adults (on a mg/m 2 basis at a maternal dose of mg/kg/day).
30 mg/kg/dose (Max: 1 gram/dose) IV or IM once daily for 1 to 3 days. High-dose pulse steroids may be considered as an alternative to a second infusion of IVIG or for retreatment of patients who have had recurrent or recrudescent fever after additional IVIG, but should not be used as routine primary therapy with IVIG in patients with Kawasaki disease. Corticosteroid treatment has been shown to shorten the duration of fever in patients with IVIG-refractory Kawasaki disease or patients at high risk for IVIG-refractory disease. A reduction in the frequency and severity of coronary artery lesions has also been reported with pulse dose methylprednisolone treatment.
