We are a support group of suffering people and children from all over the world who were prescribed topical steroids for various skin conditions and got addicted without any warning of the serious side-effects and potential addiction if used for over two weeks.
You can read our stories, see horrific pictures from our group, and read documented medical studies describing those afflicted along with their details of steroid creme addiction and withdrawal.

We call on them to make it mandatory that warning labels of potential serious addiction be attached to ALL topical steroids, whether prescription or over-the-counter.
We also call on them to stop the prescription of dangerous topical steroids to children under 18 and find safer non-addictive alternatives for skin issues. We also call on them use safe time limits of no more that two weeks of prescribing topical steroids for adult patients.
