A member asked:

Can misusing of steroid creams on scalp for psoriasis cause permanent hair loss? i sometimes misuse them slightly (but the creams are always prescribed by doctors)?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Misuse of "steroid creams" for treatment of psoriasis, prescribed by a physician will not cause permanent hair loss. Using any prescriptive medication is not a reason to apply same for purposes other than as prescribed.
