Cushingoid: Prolonged time of taking Prednisone or steroid can cause change in appearance (cushingoid). Why are you on it? Necessity? These have to be weighed. Talk to your doctor for alternatives because once it is set in, reversal would be difficult. If only swelling like edema, then it can reverse easily.
