Pharmaceutical medication used for the symptomatic management of Topical Steroid Withdrawal
People experiencing the withdrawal symptoms from the discontinuation of topical steroids are using pharmaceutical medications to improve their condition.
Supportive doctors are prescribing medications such as antihisthamines, antibiotics, and antifungals to treat specific skin issues during topical steroid withdrawal. Some doctors may also suggest a taper method to reduce the severity of the withdrawal period.
Outside of pharmaceutical medication, TSW Assist is in the process of gathering insights from sufferers of topical steroid withdrawal, and their carers. Our survey will aggregate insights of products, solutions and methods used for managing the different symptoms and stages of topical steroid withdrawal.
Currently there is no medical cure for topical steroid withdrawal, but within the global TSW community there are methods, products, and therapies that help provide symptomatic relief during the withdrawal period.
