I just started the mega dose pack of prednisone and all day people looked at me like i was about to have a stroke. My face felt like it was on fire and my whole head was red.
Is this something that happens with steroids?

Steriods are not a fun thing. Yes I would have red face, break out horrible, hot flashes, gain weight...you name it.
I would make sure to let your doctor know of this too though.

I had this too. Felt like I had a sunburn on my face. Dr. told me this is normal and would pass after awhile and it did.

I always flush terribly on steroids. It gets even worse when I have a drink or when I'm hot... Irritating, huh?!
