Wishing all of you A World Skin Health Day full of Awareness and knowledge on 6th April.
I am taking this opportunity to illuminate all of you about the ever growing steroid creams abuse and refrain from indulging in it.
FAIRNESS OR WHITENING CREAMS
Steroid containing creams are a huge success in Fairness Industry. It is injudiciously and rampantly used in over the counter (OTC) creams avalaible at chemists and general shops.
What is tempting about these creams is their tall claims of faster results and cheap pricing. They are recommended by pharmacists, Beauticians and our ignorant fellows due to lack of knowledge about its contents and their side effects.
These creams on prolonged use can cause permanent thinning of skin, excessive hair growth on face, pimples, red and sensitive skin and deranged eyesight.
ANTIFUNGAL CREAMS FOR ITCHING IN PRIVATE PARTS
Few combination creams with very potent steroid such as CLOBETASOL or MOMETASONE are being used by non Dermatologist Doctors and pharmacists for Fungal Infections in the groins.
These creams are cheap and offer temporary relief. Its long term use can cause Stretch marks and permanent thinning of skin.
On the occasion of World Skin Health Day , Lets Pledge to Refrain from using creams containing steroids and make friends & family aware about this.
