Hello. Has anyone else had problems with a red rash on their face? Mine is around my nose and in the smile lines. It's not very itchy, but it's a bit scaly and sore when I wash. Recently it's spread a little. I've tried antihistamines and changed to a sensitive skincare range but nothing helps. I've even tried putting nothing on my face for several days. My GP gave me the antihistamines but made no reference to Pred. I'm at 5mgs now after 13 months of PMR. Now I've been researching and find the rash can be a side effect of Pred, but obviously I can't stop taking it. The redness/rash is unsightly more than anything, although I can smother it in makeup when I go out. Has anyone else had this? I take Methotrexate for Rheumatoid Arthritis also. Angela
