Could cortisone cream for allergies rash used for more than a month in my six year old thighs be the cause of darkening few dark pubic hair?
Yes, but....: System-wide exposure to steroids is associated with an increased long-term risk of complications such as cataracts, glaucoma and osteoporosis. Cortisone injections are sometimes used to relieve debilitating symptoms quickly, but their routine use is not a good idea.

Need to see picture.: This could be eczema, a drug rash, or hives depending on the nature of the rash. I am unable to access your pic.

I have mild neutropenia (1.5) with eosinophilia. My GP thinks the eos-from allergy-suppress the neutr. Is there a way to lower eos without cortisone?
Unlikely: Despite college textbooks, common allergies seldom raise the eosinophil count. I trust there has been a check for helminths. If the eos are over 1000 or you have anything to suggest Churg-Strauss or Hodgkin's, a workup / consult is in order. Stable mild neutropenia like yours is usually "just you" and harmless; your neuts may simply hang on vessel walls better. ...Read more

Difference between cortisone and hydra cortisone? Can hydra cortisone creams be used regularly? Doing wonders to my skin!
It depends...: The two drugs are slightly different in that hydrocortisone is just a little more potent. However, both work similarly.
