Question: How do you get rid off the red blotches under the skin from taking prednisone? Angie

Answer: Dear Angie,

Red blotches and skin problems related to prednisone are not usually long term side effects, so even after continuing taking the medication they should dissapear. Some people discover that the red blotches appear when they are going off their medication.

In some cases, dose reduction might be necessary. It is recommended to always check with your doctor everytime side effects for any medication are apparent.
