Hello there.  I can understand your concern.  The steroids will be flushed out your system by itself you dont have to do anything. Also, dont you think if it was harmful to you why would your dermatologist prescribe it to you. Many dermatological conditions require the use of steroids. Use it only till your doctors tell you to. Dont indulge in overuse or abuse.  Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.

Hello there...I can understand your concern. certain dermatological conditions in acute stages will require systemic steroids for short durations. who said you that you have to flush out steroids if you take it for long duration. don't be a Google doctor or belive hearsay. ask your doctor personally for any concerns. if you take steroids for a few weeks, nothing will happen. but have to keep a look on your sugar levels if you are diabetic. of you have been on it for months together then even calcium levels should be looked at. such things will be taken care by your doctor.
