Sooo apparently I have contact dermatitis and the nurse practitioner prescribed me Medrol, which is methylprednisolone. I know steroids sometimes cause breakouts and I'm pretty much clear and have pretty mild acne in general. Has anyone ever taken Medrol and experienced more/less acne? Or has anyone taken any other steroid (i.e. Prednisone) and experienced more/less acne? Thanks :)

Is it a Medrol dose pack (6 days, tapering each day)? If so, my son is currently about to finish up a pack and his acne hasn't gotten any worse. His is pretty mild most of the time and I can't see any change in it since he's been on the steroids for a shoulder injury.

Lol ohh man, I got this bad rash once, and my dad (a dr) gave me a steroid pill. He's like, "now take too this too much or you'll break out"...I was like WTF are you kidding me?? I'd rather have a fat body rash than risk getting more acne. ANyways, i think it was prednisone and I only took a few pills and I did not breakout
