Before PMR/GCA I had some small hard “bumps” on my cheeks, I think the dermatologist called it “Mille flora”?? It wasn’t too bad, just a few small areas. Well lately my skin has really taken a tutn for the worse,.. more of these, bigger, they look like pimples or acne, but they’re not. Also a lot of broken red capillaries. Mostly on my cheeks, makeup doesn’t really cover them.
This is not helping my depression or my hermit tendencies.
I can’t find a dermatologist to see, the appointments are booking months ahead.
I’m on 25 mg of pred and hoping to go to 22.5, and then 20 soon.
I’m thinking it’s yet another lovely side effect of pred. Has anyone found anything that treats this?
Thanks in advance.
