Steroid side effects. Acne is most certainly a side effect of steroids. Not only can it be facial but it can also occur on the trunk and extremities.
Yes. Steroids can cause facial acne which will persist even voter stopping decadron (dexamethasone). Topical acne meds will help but complete clearing while on de adron is more difficult.
Decadron (dexamethasone) and acne. Facial acne can be seen with the use of decadron (dexamethasone). There is no general rule when or if you will see it. It depends a little on the strength and frequency of the dose.
Steroid side effects. Decadron also known as dexamethasone is a potent steroid that can be taken as pill, injection or cream. Side effects are like other steroids but can include stomach upset, headache, dizziness, menstrual changes, trouble sleeping, increased appetite, weight gain, and mood changes. With prolonged use it may decrease body defense to infections, affect bones, muscles and eyes.
Decadron (dexamethasone) With a single shot usually none. Sometimes a steroid shot makes you have insomnia or retain water. Repeated shots or pills will have the potential for many other side effects including immune alteration, changes in your appearance, worsening of glucose levels, osteoporosis etc.
Good thinking. The longer you are on it, the more likely, you will have side effects.
I had a single Decadron (dexamethasone) injection 24 hours ago. Common side effect is a hot or red face. How long is this supposed to last?
Steroid side effect. Hopefully only a couple of days maximum. If the symptoms progress or you have persistence, I would recommend seeing your doctor.
