After I'd been on Imuran for six months I noticed an increase in the amount of pimples on my face, mostly my nose, and some on the top of my head.  Anybody else notice this?
When I was on prednisone they were on my chest.

Pretty much have had acne ever since I was dx with Crohns:( and at 42 it's pretty embarassing.
Imuran makes it worse yes...sorry. I've been to derms and Dr.'s and I've just learned to accept it. My skin used to be beautiful. I miss it and honestly, sometimes it just really hurts. I think it's just the constant inflammation we have going on inside out bodies that makes our skin so sensative.

Nope, never noticed , but then I have never seen your nose or head.
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.
