I've noticead red bumps around my pubic area. I was told its folliculitis. I've been on steroid cream for three days and see no improvement.
Folliculitis: Steroid cream is an unusual treatment for folliculitis, although might be helpful if given along with an antibiotic ointment or pills.

My 7wk baby has infected eczema where her skin in d affected areas is weeping & looks very sore been there for 3wks now. Is steroid cream safe option?
Yes.: Lots of babies get eczema - and steroid creams are 100% safe if used appropriately.

If not, mix the moisturizer 50/50 with 1% hydrocortisone, or if you have a prescription cream, use that, and apply. Use the creams generously and consistently - should improve in 10 days. ...Read more
