I’ve been trying to find anything about the oil slick dryness situation I have going on after a pulse of prednisone and a quick browse through the internet shows thin skin, dryness, bruising are all side effects, but it’s a bit glossed over in favor of the severe side-effects. This is entirely fair, all else considered.
Still, when I feel awful but I’m somewhat functional, I’d rather at least feel okay about how I’m looking, if nothing else.
I don’t know if I’m the only one out there that feels as if prednisone is a whole-body desiccant (I get the range of “extreme thirst” side effects), but I’d like to share what’s been working for me in the event this might help anyone else. I know for me these “temporary side effects” have an impact on my skin texture and how makeup wears for at least a month after going through a pulse treatment.
