    Skin rash from epidural ?

    I have facial Rosacia that flares up normally about every 3 months just not this severe.. A few months ago I took the Medrol pak and had a bad flare up. I just got a cervical epidural and on day 2 my face broke out in a bad rash like Rosacia . I have medicated cream called Rosac to use, but just causes more burning & irritation. Anyone else have outbreaks like this, maybe its a bad reaction due to the steroid ?

    EVERY time I take steroids, whether its oral or an injection, I get the red faced thing. I dont know if its rosacea (prob. not), but alot of times I get it only on one side of my face and I look pretty odd! I know one of the side effects of steroids is that bigtime flushing.
