I was wondering if anyone else had experiend anything similar. about
a week after stopping a 4 month course of steroids I developed horrible red angry looking very dry areas around my mouth. This has gone on for about
4 weeks and occasionally gets a lot better and I think it is finally clearing and then gets worse again and I'm back to square one. It is also bumpy and can be spotty, sore and a little itchy.
My Consultant commented on it this week and thinks it may be down to the Azathioprine but from searching on the Internet I think it sounds a little like perioral dermatitis. I think I have had something similar on stopping previous courses of steroids but don't remember it being this bad and bothering me this much.
Any advice anyone can offer would be much appreciated.
