I was put on prednisone for another aliment, but it has cleared up my neck and jawline quite well.

I have done some reading about prednisone to treat acne, but wanted to know if anyone had talked to their derm about it?

I'm on a low dose 25mg a day and will slowly be taken of it over the next two months. I have read that your acne can come back once you go off it, but I didin't know if you could take a small dose 5mg a day to see if that helps keep it in remission.

Thanks for your time.

I think there are better ways of keeping acne in remission. My daughter has taken prednisone in short bursts from time to time to calm a stubborn breakout. It's known as the "prom drug" because it does take down inflamation fast. The last time she got it the doctor was very careful to discuss recent facts about it though. Apparently it has been linked to causing brittle bone problems and hip fractures. It also can cause facial hair growth in females.
