A corticosteroid agent is as important as the aircraft to a pilot, as the above picture suggests even in the era of various cosmetic procedures, steroids hold its importance way above. The asteroidal agent has its definitive indicative therapeutic agent in indications like eczema, dermatitis, lichen planus, Drug Rash, Allergic Reaction like Urticaria and many other dermatological conditions. If used in the appropriate way for the appropriate time in the appropriate conditions. It is just like a knife if given at right hands it will be used to cook cut anything n everything on daily household activities but not can be used by a murderer too. 

With this, I would like to conclude leave it to your dermat to treat the way he or she wants and similarly "DO NOT" let your family physicians, pharmacists or medical friend give you steroids irrationally.
