Re: Alternative steroid creams

I'm sorry you're having a potential reaction to topical therapy. I would speak to your GP to describe what symptoms you're having. Alternative steroid preparations can be considered but do discuss this with your GP first. They can ask your local dermatologist for advice and guidance on this if needed. Remember to use your emollient first before you apply your steroid therapy. Use a mirror to check exactly where you're applying them.
