How long will it take to recover from topical steroid induced acne? (Two weeks of elocon 0.1% on face).
Doctor Answers 1
The cortisone induced acne can persist for many weeks. Since your acne has persisted for such a long time I would recommend a consultation with a board certified dermatologist for treatment recommendations. This may include topical therapies and possible oral therapies such as antibiotics. Best wishes.
