Really...so why did my skin get thinner after using these steroid creams/ointments? I used these creams/ointments exactly how my Derm told me to and I still ended up with extremely thin skin and now I get flare ups more easily. Soo don't fall for that "steriods don't cause thin skin" nonsense.

Do you have a link to this study, roboblogger? Because I have a reliable source which proves otherwise - WIKIPEDIA. Lol. To everyone who reads this post, steroid creams DO thin the skin especially with prolonged use or if they are misused in any way. Don't fret if your skin's been "thinned" by these steroid creams however. As long as you stop using them, your skin will return to its normal state within a few months :) Information is key to curing your eczema. Misinformation will lead to otherwise.
