I am not sure why you are on an immunosuppressive drug. Prednisone is a glucocorticoid. It is an anti-inflammatory but it also supresses your immune system, which means the bacteria will be able to thrive. Odd, perhaps this is standard procedure I have not heard of.

High doses of prednisone can induce facial acne.
