Topical corticosteroids withdrawal (sometimes called “topical steroid addiction” or “Red Skin Syndrome”) appears to be a clinical adverse effect that can occur when topical corticosteroids are inappropriately used or overused, then stopped. It can result from prolonged, frequent, and inappropriate use of moderate to high potency topical corticosteroids, especially on the face and genital area, but is not limited to these criteria. In reviewing the studies that were used for the systematic review, it is thought that adult women who blush easily are a population particularly at risk. Very few cases have been reported in children, but no large-scale studies have attempted to quantify the incidence. Thus, continued vigilance and adherence to a safe, long-term treatment plan developed in conjunction with your dermatology provider is advised.
I realize this is an old post and I don’t know how many people will still read this but I’m writing this to benefit anyone who still does. I have read all the comments and can’t believe that in so many people not one of you know the real cause and treatment for eczema. Eczema is caused by a sick digestive system and malfunctioning gut. Undigested foods and harmful bacteria leak out of the gut and into the bloodstream causing eczema as well as ., ., autism, asthma, schizophrenia, anxiety, and more. Creams and topical treatment will help relieve the burn and itch for a short while but the only way to truly heal eczema forever is by following a special gut healing diet. The GAPS diet is so far the only diet with an amazing success rate for treating and healing all of the above. Google it, go to their website, and read the book. It will change your life forever.
Disclaimer: I am in no way affiliated to anything GAPS related. I just suffered immensely with my daughter before finding out about this healing diet and I’d love to share my success story with the world.
