    Default Quick Question about Rosacea vs. Seb Derm

    Hey all,

    Just a quick question. Can one develop rosacea on their nose from limited steroid use? I used hydrocortisone on it for about 10 days, took a break for a month, used it for another 4 days, took a break for another month and then used mometasone furoate (even more powerful than hydrocortisone) on it for 5 days before stopping steroids altogether. Obviously none of these helped me out at all, just made my skin condition worse.

    I was certain that I had seborrheic dermatitis, but now am worried that I might have rosacea (you can also see faint blood vessels on the bridge of my nose). I guess my question is: can you develop steroid-induced rosacea from using steroids for such short periods of time?

    I am praying that the answer is no, but please tell me what you guys think

    In summary:

    Can you get steroid-induced rosacea from 15 days of steroid usage on your face?

    I am terrified that this is what has happened to me. Would appreciate it greatly if someone could shed some light on whether or not this is possible!

    I think it's possible, only because my doctor told me a few months ago to use it only for about 4 days or else symptoms could worsen. I ended up not using it at all, started using Prosacea and then my face cleared up. Didn't want to risk it with the hydrocortisone cream. But hopefully others with more experience can answer your question better. I do feel very bad for you, and I hope you find something that will clear things up soon.
