Chronic Use of Steroids
Chronic use of steroids almost always leads to tachyphylaxis (lack of response). Changing from one steroid to another may delay tachyphylaxis, but the only way to prevent it is to stop using topical corticosteroids, at least temporarily. Alternatively, regiments which have been called “pulse therapy” or “weekend therapy” are quite effective and minimize the likelihood of a person developing skin side effects and tachyphylaxis. In these regiments, strong topical corticosteroids are applied on weekends only, and emollients or non steroidal antipsoriatic agents are applied. See also >>>
