Re: penis damage from steroid creams

Well, I think I am starting to see some improvements with the skin thickening back up. It's just that there is a constant redness on the foreskin and at the bottom of the corona. It's quite bothersome and there is a consistent burning sensation there. I have read about a condition called red skin syndrome which is what can happen when withdrawing from overuse of topical steroids. Because the absorption of steroids in the genital area is very high it may not take very long for this to happen. I think this will get better but it is going to take some time. For now it is irritating as hell and I'll never touch topical steroids again.
