Is this another lovely side effect from entocort??  I looked in my high magnifying mirror  to find dark, black hair...yes...now I am growing a mustache and beard!  I went to get it waxed and they did it 6 times and said it was very stubborn.  Great!  Not only are my intestines freaking out but I am turning inot a gorilla also!  Oh how the fun never stops around here.

Hey, I dont look like a buffalo. Wish that stuff would put hair on my head. I do have a full beard though. Hope you dont get one.
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.

Hi Ya! Yup when on I was on prednisone, I got furry cheeks and not so much on the upper lip. Luckily I am very pale and the hair was white. I did go mostly away when I stopped the prednison so I hope yours does too. I still have a little left on the cheeks near the ears, but that may be from family history....Grandma had a full moustache and seemed to have a beard too.

had my moustache waxed too while I was on the prednisone (I'm female). The pred made me grow facial hair and the azasan makes the hair on my head fall out. I wish this disease would get it together...
