I've been feeling better since I started the Pred taper. My cheeks are going back to normal and thanks to some Proactiv my skin is clearing up. I noticed I had a bunch of long blond hairs on my face but tweezed a couple and let it go. However, I noticed today that in sunlight I look like I'm getting a beard :( Will the extra facial hair go away once I stop the Pred or is it there for good?
