Hello, I`m 60, is there anything to help thin skin?
Prednisone is the most common reason for my patients with myasthenia gravis to have thin skin. The best treatment is to slowly reduce the prednisone dose. This, of course, has to be balanced against controlling the MG. Definitely something for you to discuss with your treating neurologist. Best wishes.
