I think I finally figured out what’s wrong with my skin. topical steroid withdrawal. if you don’t feel like googling, it’s when you overuse topical steroids such as creams like hydrocortisone for issues like eczema and your skin becomes addicted. in my case, I’ve been using those kinds of creams on my body for most of my life, and began using the hydrocortisone on my face three years ago. so basically, when you stop using them your skin goes through horrible withdrawal symptoms that can last for months to years. yay! and doctors prescribe these like nothing. not knowing the chaos they’re inflicting on people in the long run.
welp, I guess I have to deal with this now. really don’t know what I’m gonna do with this semester of school as this might get progressively worse….
