This is a low-medium potency steroid, and I would not normally recommend this for regular use more than a couple of weeks. Why was this prescribed?
because i had some skin rash or some fungus on my face
This should not normally be used for fungal infections. What is the appearance of the skin now?
My skin get dry and i get these little pimples that has some sort of clear yellow pus
Have you had any skin scrapings or swabs?
what is skin scrapings or swab, and guess the answer is no?
Skin scraping is where dry skin is scraped into a small envelope to send to check for fungal infection. Swabs are sticks dragged over the pus and sent for analysis.
the answer is no
There are a wide range of possible skin conditions, so being able to visualise the skin is important as well as then deciding if scraping/swab is needed. How long have you been on the desonide?
for over 5 years
This is a bit longer than we usually recommend unless there is a clear diagnosis of eczema or psoriasis.
I think you need a new approach to looking after your skin. When was the last time you saw a doctor about it?
what do you suggest i use or what i can do about this problem
You need a diagnosis although having used steroid for a long time, then you may see the skin worsen when you stop it for a period of time.
Certainly any weeping areas need to be swabbed and sent off to rule out infection.
Any dry areas can use a perfume free moisturiser such as Eucerin.
that has already taken place for i did not use this stuff every day. Over the last 5 years i may have used a total of (3) 2-oz container? Are you taking about eucerin lotion?
Not using desonide every day is much better. Yes, eucerin lotion can be very good for dry skin. Have you tried it?
no be will give a try. Is there any other kind that's out there?
There is a whole range of different products, either cosmetic based such as Clinique, or pharmaceutical such as Eucerin. If you speak to a pharmacist in person then he/she will be able to assess your face and recommend an appropriate product. Although if it does look like there is an infection or a more serious skin problem then you may have to see a doctor or dermatologist.
