Okay, I know as far as side effects go acne is minor, but arg why when I start a new relationship and are tapering OFF the pred that the pizza face side effect kicks in?
Now I'm just ticked!  mad
Sorry I had to vent for a second. 
There are those that are way worse off than I am and to complain about something that is as truly insignificant as this I know is lame.  But what else is the internet for other than to complain annonmously to anyone who will read what you have to say?

Vent away! Even though it's a "minor" side effect, if it makes you feel bad, it's very major. We put up with the inconvenience and the pain, so why do we have to put up with the ones that affect our appearance too, right?

I agree, vent away! Never compare what you are going thru with that of another. If it's important to you, then it's important enough. :)
