    Several times I have broken out in an itchy, tiny bump rash when on Predisone, whether taken orally or by injection. Physicians tell me this cannot happen because our bodies make steroids themselves, but I know what I experience, and it is maddening. Any comments?

    I have a severe skin rash as well as Osteoarthritis. I have already had two courses of prednisone. Today is my second day @ 25mL by 2. On my previous course my rash improved dramatically and the pain in my hips was not evident at all. Since finishing that course, both rash and pain have recurred with a vengeance. Yes, I did get headache, sleeplessness, mood swings, anxiety but in the long run my initial problem had been resolved whilst on Prednisone. Because everything has turned pear shaped, my specialist has prescribed a much longer tapering off period which will hopefully be more successful. If you are getting side effects, just hang in there, because like me the initial problem may come back worse than when it commenced



    To help deal with sinus infections, I am now on a 7 day dosage of prednisone again for the second time in 2 years. Each time I have experienced some very positive side effects. Allergy bumps on my skin cleared up, the (degenerative) arthritis pain in my upper neck and lower back went away. Yes, I am hungrier that usual, but food now taste great. And, getting a nice little lift. Wish I could feel this way all of the time, but I know it’s going to go away after I finish the prescription. Probably shouldn’t take it long-term, anyhow. Any suggestions, thoughts?



    I had a rash for 20 yrs before i realized it was food allergies. docs had no part in the discovery.



    I have chronic rashes all over my body and eczema on my hands. The eczema is so bad that forms giant blisters cover my palms and between my fingers. Prednisone is the only thing that makes this go away. The problem is, the moment I taper off, it all starts again. I’ve been on it since early September 2011, and have tapered off 4 times, only to have to go back on. My side effects are minimal, but I’d prefer not to have to use it. For me, it is a magic drug.



    Hello,was prescribed Prednisone following chest infection,then cellulitis in leg,after three lots of different antibiotics my leg swelled and a nasty red rash appeared and started to spread up both legs,told I had developed allergy to penicillan. Been taking 50mg prednisone for 5 days,started clearing rash within 4days,am now on 25mg for three days and have sore,raw tongue,numb feet,numb lip ,numb in private parts,makes going to toilet interesting,have the jitters like having too many coffees ,have no appetite,having trouble concentrating but overall Prednisone is working for me at the moment.



    I have a Prednisone withdrawal rash right now. It’s all over my face, neck, back & chest. K get this every time I take Prednisone. Sometimes when this happens, the doc orders another round of Prednisone. Sounds stupid, but the second round elimiates the rash, and I don’t get it again when stoping the second round.

    Good day! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform
    are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve
    had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.

    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of
    a good platform.|
