My question is in regards to my acne. I was prescribed cephalexin & prednisone, how long does it take for the medicine to start working? The first few days i broke out ALOT even in my forehead (my problem was only in my jawline/cheeks).

In brief: Acne????

You are not describing a treatment for acne.
Ask the Dr what is the diagnosis. Probably you need a dermatologist. Is is unusual and often inappropriate to use both prednisone and cephalosporin at the same time.
