Steroid rosacea


Fluorinated topical glucocorticoids should not be used on the face since this is often associated with the development of rebound worsening and steroid-induced rosacea or atrophy. It is necessary to stop the application of these steroid creams as soon as the patient can tolerate the change.

The use of topical steroids will make your skin extremely sensitive. Continued use of topical steroids or cortisones can produce a "steroid Rosacea" that includes redness, blood vessels, and pimples.

A similar condition can arise in other areas treated with topical steroids, particularly the groin and genitals where the absorption of the steroid through the skin is higher. Initial use of topical steroids can reduce redness. However, chronic use for weeks or longer can produce this paradoxical response that actually worsens the redness and can produce pimples.

Topical steroids are classified into four groups - mild, moderate, potent and very potent.

What is the difference between regular rosacea and steroid rosacea?

While they may resemble rosacea, the redness, bumps and pimples that appear as a result of excess steroid use are not a type of rosacea, according to the report of the National Rosacea Society Expert Committee on the Classification and Staging of Rosacea.

Treatment of Steroid rosacea

Removal of topical steroids is mandatory, which at first usually leads to an exacerbation of the disease. Topical cortisones also referred to as steroid creams are a skin preparation similar to hydrocortisone. Steroid use can cause steroid -induced rosacea and not to be used as a rosacea treatment.
