I have been using a mild cortisone cream on my face for over a year, and all my efforts to stop using it have been unsuccessful. Once I stop using it, my face becomes unbearabley itchy and red and irritated. Elidel cream has not worked for me, so I am currently still using the steroid-based lotion. I am hoping to hear from someone who has had a similar experience, and how they overcame the addiction to the cortisone cream. I know that it is damaging my skin every time I use it, and am desperate for a treatment that will at least help with the symptoms while my skin is weened off the cortisone. Any advice or response is appreciated.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
