Steroid Treatment for Rosacea

Recommended Posts

Generally steroid treatment for rosacea is not recommended. Read this article about Steroid Rosacea. However, sometimes you read in clinical papers that certain skin cases are treated with steroids. For example, in treating rosacea fulminans (aka, Pyoderma Faciale), "Corticosteroids and isotretinoin are regarded as the two main therapeutic agents." [1] There are many other examples where steroids are used to treat skin conditions including rosacea. 

In the short term, steroid treatment may improve rosacea. For example, read this post about using Prednisone for an allergic reaction and how rosacea improved

Long term steroid treatment for rosacea is not recommended and will make rosacea worse.
