Trying to determine if it is me, or a side effect of the Prednisone. :)

Thanks!

Not prednisone, I don't think.

It's not on the side effects list.

Guess we'll just add that to my list then, eh? I had suspected, but now it is obvious. Will keep an eye on it after I taper off the Pred, too. Thanks!

Sun sensitivity is a very common symptom of lupus.  Some meds can have a side effect but I don't believe that pred does.
