I have eczema. There is redness in my cheeks. I have used Corticosteroid cream for six days. Are there any side effects in using it?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Corticosteroids should never be applied without a doctor's advise. Also, there are certain steroids which should never be applied on the face.
