Reviews for Prednisone to treat Skin Rash
"I has the worst poison ivy reaction from cleaning my yard on June 25 .. First I was prescribed an antibiotic them a steroid cream.. finally the mass general hospital prescribed me this medication and was in my first full day of being goes my rash went away I feel completely better ... I'm on 4-10 mg tablets daily then down to 3-3 days and 2-2 days and 1-1 day and I don't know what I would have done with out this medication. Abusing it would be scary but I haven't had any bad or noticable side effects besides my back hurts..."

"I have been dealing with an itchy, red, flaky rash on my face, (chin area) for a few months. I've tried just about every over the counter cream and ointments recommended by doctors. The PA I work with suggested prednisone for a weeks time. Two 20mg for the first dose, then one 20mg tablet twice a day for 5 days. I took my first dose at 630pm and by 7am next morning my rash was 75% gone. Heard weight gain is a huge side effect from the meds but I can live with that over the embarrassing rash I had for months."

"I took 2 20mg doses (pill) 12 hours apart , as told by my doctor. The next day i started shaking when I woke up in bed and went straight to the hospital for "corticosteroid induced psychosis" caused by prednisone. I am still recovering!"

"I have dealt with an itching face for several months. I was embarrassed for anyone to see my face. After purchasing numerous over the counter creams, without any results, I decided it was time to see the doctor. Thank God for prednisone...the itching went away and my skin is clear."

"I got poison Oak or Ivy not sure which one but after a steroid shot and being prescribed prednisone the rash went away in a couple weeks. At the end of the dosage I did have a pretty bad break out of acne on my chest and my back."

"I got a terrible rash from being exposed to poison ivy. It was all over. The prednisone was a terrifically fast cure. However, I experienced terrible side effects: increased sweating, shakiness, mood swings (my poor boyfriend) and weight gain. "

"I have been taking prednisone for about one month. I have a skin condition that it very itchy and feels like hot needles are poked into my skin. Prednisone has relieved the problem but my doctor has cut me back and the the problem is coming back. I will see a dermatologist in two weeks, again. He did nothing for me back in December except cost me $1000. I think this medicine is very good, but a person has to have the right dose and stay on it."
