The International Eczema Council Warns Against Overuse of Corticosteroids

If you routinely use corticosteroids to treat your eczema, you may want to seek an alternative to manage your symptoms. In guidelines recently published in the British Journal of Dermatology, the The International Eczema Council (IEC) cautioned against prescribing corticosteroids for atopic dermatitis. According to the findings of a survey, the prescription of the medication should be reserved for special cases and limited to short-term use. For children, the drug should be avoided due to the potential for unwanted side effects.
