so it has gotten worse since I am now down to 2.5mg a day. I had clear skin before pred.
I have a ton of tiny red pimples, some have white heads some do not, they are on my forehead, cheeks, chin, neck and chest. They hurt too!
I have tried almost everything but they wont go away, i'd prefer not to take any more meds right now, but I seriously need to get these off my face. I have a business trip to the UK next month and would prefer not to be in a full blown break out.
Anyone try pro-active? I am about to order some.
Beth, 33 ~ hoping to taper pred successfully, wish me luck!
