Re: prednisone and acne
I had to take 40mg of prednisone a day for 5 days (I had a bad allergic reaction) and consequently my skin cleared up SO well. Until I stopped taking it. Then I had THE WORST breakout of my life.
Being on prednisone has such bad side effects.. among the others listed by the person above, it can cause diabetes, glaucoma, weight gain, appitite increase, sleeplessness (the list goes on)... with long-term use.
To me, it simply isnt worth it for moderate acne. If you have severe acne and everything a derm has suggested has failed, then maybe it should be an option.
