It can take 2 to 4 weeks sometimes but if it does not get better after this time then get an examintion by a doctor. Apply tea tree oil or aloevera gel to keep the area hydrated.

I am worried I am left with permanent side effects. Do you think 5 days 2x a day elicits this reaction?

Thanks for the reply. Steroid use less than a week is not likely to cause an permanent damage so stay positive.

What do you think? It’s now just very dry, wrinkled and red. I’m trying to find some natural aloe Vera plant to use. Do you think this redness/ wrinkles will go away in time?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
What do you think about that photo?

This looks just dry and would get better over time. Do not get worried.
