Poststeroid telangiectasia

Poststeroid telangiectasia

The chronic use of topical steroids can induce telangiectasia formation, particularly when potent steroids are used on the face.
Epidermal and dermal atrophy are noted in association.

Treatment:

  • The telangiectasia slowly clear following a cessation of the topical steroid. Such clearing may be incomplete.
  • Rarely should a glucocorticoid stronger than 1% hydrocortisone be used for a facial dermatitis.
