Ok, I went 30 years with normal skin (clear of any blemishes) and for the last four months my face has turned hidious!  Red, zits, swelling, rashy, the list goes on and on.  I've been on Pred off and on for three years and am on Immuran.  Has anyone else had this problem?  I fee like wearing a bag over my head to work!  I look like I've been taking on too much sun.
 
HELP!

Could be from the pred. Have you seen a dermatologist? I have been blessed with Rosacea. This is another auto immune thing. If it is Rosacea, a dermatologist can help.

I have been on pred since January and I have never had any problems with zits,pimples, etc. but now I get them alot more frequently. It is not horribly bad yet, but annoying. I also used to break out in a rash under my eyes which I think happened whenever I flared.

-Medications I am on:
Prednisone
Asacol
Canansa
Oxycodone
Doctors are about to try me on Remicaide
Celexa ( Anxiety)
-Syptoms: 6 BM/day, heavy rectal bleeding, severe back and side pain, abdominal cramping, fatigue, low blood count,nausea,rectal pain
