been on approx 50 mg of pred a day since 9/7/07 about 4 months. two weeks ago just started getting a few zits on my face, neck, chest and back. This week I have gotten 3 pimples on my face, one is pretty big and it hurts.
My acne history: had pimples (not zits, pimples are more under the skin and hurt) on and off (mostly on) from age 11 to 28, at age 28 I started getting huge acne cysts and went on accutane (best thing I ever did, I could finally see what I looked like and not have painful pimples) and have had only the tiniest zit or two since then until these past few weeks. GRRRRR!!!!
Hate the pred!!! Sorry Cammie, this really stinks!!!
I have been using neutrogena acne stuff in a tube on my zits and they have gone away in a few days. It used to take me weeks to get rid of pimples. If I am going to be on this for much longer, I will do the proactive, not sure if that will help pred acne but will try.
