Topical Steroid Withdrawal

PRESENTED ON NOV 01, 2014
IN BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN @ VOL 1

It is likely that 1 in every 3 people knows someone with skin problems. Rashes, eczema, dermatitis, infections - these are often treated by topical steroids (TS). However, steroids go by different names and prolonged use can cause addiction, whereby the skin is unable to be problem-free for long. This dependence on TS causes the breaks between skin problems to become shorter, affecting the sufferer's quality of life, mental and emotional health. But weaning off the steroids can be a long and difficult journey with severe withdrawal symptoms on the skin. Can you survive such an episode? Florina Tan who developed TS addiction after continued use over 30 years, did and encourages others to have the courage to do the same.
