When our skin looks good, we look good. Clean and trouble-free skin is something all of us crave for. To look perfect goes a lot of time pampering our skin through day and night with moisturizing creams, oils, cleansers and what not! But not all day is Sunday. We have bad-skin days, sometimes acne pops up, sometimes infection sets in, and sometimes we just get tanned on a hot summer day, isn’t it?
Many such skin problems just vanish with time, but some continue to bother us. Coincidently, facing skin problems reminds us of all the skin cream advertisements with its magical effects. Many of us unknowingly buy such over-the-counter face creams, ointments to treat various skin problems like acne, pigmentation, fungal infection, rash, etc directly from the chemists who are allowed to sell the drug freely without a dermatologist’s prescription. There comes the real problem!
Most of these commercially available creams have a high amount of “steroid” due to its bleaching, depigmentation and anti-inflammatory effects. This drug used in skin creams has the ability to cure a wide variety of disorders ONLY if used right. Unfortunately, it is causing more damage to the skin than it repairs as most of us are not using them under medical supervision.

All in all, overusing such steroid-based over-the-counter creams without prescription damages your skin beyond your imagination.
Better be safe, because when it comes to skin, dermatologists know the best!
