My dermotologist was on call for me for my first wedding just in case I needed a steroid shot in my pimple, when I get one it is a big one not just some little itty bitty.  So whenever I felt one coming on a few days before the wedding i went to her office and she got me right in and gave me a steroid shot in the pimple which hurt but hey looking beautiful sometimes hurts!  But this works if you only have maybe 1 or 2 on your face not a lot more than that.

my derm is suggesting something similar but it’s actually a shot tha tyou get a week before your wedding to prevent any breakouts. I totally plan on getting it 🙂

I was on sterioids to clear up some kind of weird rash I had one time. ( I know gross) But he did say he thought it was from stress… anyway lol I was okay with them. I did feel like eating everything in site; which was a weird feeling. But it wasn’t unbearable. I know you said you decided not to take them; just thought I’d share this story. My granmother was put on steroids when she was younger for some reason or another and she had aweful side affects. They made her a totally different person. They basically made her crazy. She starting having crazy feelings inside & it just made her VERY VERY on edge & Moody. She had to stop taking them because they made her soo depressed. Just a little warning for others considering this. You may want to just keep that in mind incase you start experiencing weird moods once you begin taking them. Again I was fine with mine but that always stuck in my mind about how they affected her mentally.

I’ve never heard of this but not surprising. I don’t know if I’d mess with steroids if I didn’t absolutely need to. I’m surprised they interfere with BCPs, though; I thought that was just antibiotics. 🙂

Are the steroid packs like birth control pills? A few years ago I was breaking out and my derm said that BC pills shoulds help me. They are trisprintic and did the trick.
