My son come home from a 3 wk admission y'day where he had massive doses of dexmethsone (oral steriod) . He began getting spots in the last week but today they have spread all over his face and scalp,if you imagine the worst teenage spots and its worse than that,hundreds of them. I took him to local pharmacist who said because he had such big doses steriod it has affected his immune system and this is result. His only suggestion was to keep my son indoors and out of sun. So now i've got a very unhappy 10yr old who doesnt want to go back to school because he thinks he looks really spotty with a huge face. Obviously the moon face is the steriods but does anyone ese get bad skin? If so any suggestions on what I can do for him?
