I’m not sure if anyone can help me but I had been using elecon cream for a few years for a rash on my face. When this stopped working I went to a dermatologist and he told me I was suffering steroid withdrawals. The red, rash and puffiness I got from this was so horrible.
I then tried Chinese herbal medicine and the cream he gave me worked so good. I look it up it said it was a compound ketoconazole ointment now when I have stopped this it’s like I’m going through the same withdrawals I was with the elecon cream. I went back to the dr as I’m puffy, really red and my skin is weeping and he prescribed me panafcortelone 25mg to take 2 a day for 5 days then go back and see him.
I told the dr my history and he said he’s never heard of steroid cream withdrawal.
I’m worried if I take this steroid tablet I’ll just go through withdrawals again.
Can anyone help?
