Hello and hope you are doing well.

Understand your predicament.
The facial swelling is a side effect of steroid medications. But as you stop the medications or as you are tapered of them, the swelling should subside.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Steroids are given to manage Lupus. The disorder can show a waxing and waning phenomenon. As long as you continue to take steroids you may have the side effects. The risks and benefits are weighed, before discontinuing steroid medications. So, please discuss this with your doctor.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
