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.
