I have eczema, and after knowing that I'm addicted to steroid drug, I decide to withdraw it and have many symptoms after discontinue using steroids, including flaking skin, irritated, infected, or reddened on skin. I go to an immunologist, and he prescribes me a SAStid bar for my eczema skin. He says that it will strip out all of my skin flakes.
It works. However my skin is very dry afterward. I search the side effect of the SAStid soap:
Sastid Soap may cause the following symptoms that are related to eczema (inflamed, red, itchy, scaking skin rash with sores and crusting):
Red/inflammed rash. Reddening of the skin due to widening of small blood vessels (uncommon) Shedding of skin (uncommon) Skin disorders (uncommon) Skin redness (uncommon)
Even Drug.com recommends that:
Do not use SAStid soap on skin that is irritated, infected, or reddened.
Q: I see many reviews that this product does what it supposes to do, but under my condition, I don't know if this prescription is good or not. Is using SAStid soap good for eczema skin? (Especially during steroid withdrawal.)
