Side Effects of Steroid Creams

There are many anti-itch creams on the market, but what you have to realize is certain anti-itch creams work for certain situations.  If you're someone who needs a steroid medication to get an itch taken care of, that's okay, but you don't want to be using that for a prolonged period of time.  For instance, if someone takes a steroid for a prolonged period of time, they actually are going to have a thinning out of the skin.  It actually can cause what we call striae, or red spots which go across the skin, which can cause a problem that never goes away. 

We always appreciate your comments.
