I’m having a problem with my skin after steroid (Medrol) treatment? Will this persist?
Generally, the skin will recover completely after a short course (like you had) of the potent antiinflammatories in the steroid group …….like prednisone and methylprednisolone (the Medrol). They inhibit temporarily the production of collagen, and aggravate rosacea and dilated blood vessels. Again, with short course, usually these effects are temporary. Call your doctor for advice if the effects persist.
