Cystic Nodular Acne After Corticosteroid
Doctor gave me Lameson (something like prednisone) - corticosteroid for my Bell's Palsy. After taking it for 2 months, in my 47yo - acne appear on my face from the chin and now after 50 days spreading to both lower cheek and forehead. Starting from whiteheads all over my chin and cheek - and then many of them become severe cystic nodular acne. to my surprise, corticosteroid is used for acne medication ?? how could it be possible ? If it's true, should I drink back the pill ?
Cortisone induced acne may be best treated with oral doxycycline
