|RATING||REASON||SIDE EFFECTS FOR ARISTOCORT||COMMENTS||SEX||AGE||DURATION/|
|1||Seborrhea on jaw||Permanent severe, engulfing acne on face, permanent severe coarse, black facial hair (I'm a woman,) extremely red face now manifesting as milder rosacea.||These topicals should never be used for than a week, maximum. When I developed the terrible side effects, I went to six doctors, all of whom told me steroid creams had no side effects whatsoever. All they had to do was read the drug company's accompanying literature: Severe acne, hirsutism (facial hair) and rosacea, as well as a list of other side effects longer than your leg. I was kept on the cream for seven years. Every time I tried to stop, my skin inflamed even more (rebound rosacea typical of steroid topicals.) When I finally found out the truth--such symptoms are not only side effects, but permanent--it was too late.||F||57||7 years ||10/27/2009|
