I know. The headline is like a dramatic news story, but it is very cold and the air is very dry here in th northeast US, and despite the fact that to some extent it makes breathing a bit easier, it is playing havoc on my skin.
I am on prednisone no stop now at various doses for the past six years and nine months, and among the many negative side effects of the wonder drug is bone thinning and thinning of the skin. Luckily, a bone scan has proven that I have no ill effects on my bones from the drug. However, my skin is like paper.
