I posted a few days ago about acne after prednisone.  Okay, last night and today into this evening the skin on my face has gotten really dry all of a sudden and the acne is clearing up.  The dryness is so that it is flaky and I don't think I'll be able to wear makeup tomorrow.  Along with this, twice this week I have had *TMI Warning* stringy mucus in my left eye with irritation that goes away after it is removed.  Then tonight when I got out of the shower I have a weird rash on my neck and my ears are itching like crazy very deeply.  The rash is almost circular large dots about the size of the pad of my finger and they are very spread out, but in two lines going across my neck.  I don't know what to think of this.  It's strange though because last week when I saw my GI he asked me if I had any rashes lately, I told him no because I hadn't at the time.  Now I'm worried because I searched these things together and came up with some scary and some not so scary explanations.  I wish I hadn't done that, but my curiosity got the best of me. 
Has anyone else experienced these symptoms?
