Hi Merriloo. Sounds like you are experiencing a facial flush. New to prednisone levels will do that. Be sure you take it with 1/2 in AM and 1/2 in PM with food. I had no flushing from methotrexate although both were together. When I stopped it and tried a new prednisone sparing drug, I still got flushed. Especially on doses over 20mg it needs to be split and flushing occurred for me. Prednisone flushing occurs an hour or more after I take it. Eventually it has stopped and I am no longer sensitive to it.
Don't worry, flushing is not harmful, just warm. Lol. K
