Steroid induced rosacea can be caused by the prolonged (usually daily) use of a topical steroid on the face. The presentation is typically of inflammatory acne lesions consisting of pustules, papules, and cysts. We treat steroid induced rosacea by gradually weaning the patient off the topical steroid while simultaneously treating with either a topical or systemic antibiotic. In my experience, steroid induced rosacea is not permanent when treated correctly. I recommend you consult with a board-certified dermatologist to make sure your condition gets resolved in a proper manner and time frame.
My Son has Fetal Valproate Syndrome a type of Fetal Anti Convulsant Syndrome (FACS) caused by Sodium valproate (Epilim, Depakote, Depakene) that I took while pregnant to control epilepsy.

A group of people affected by the harmful side effects of pharmaceutical products held a peaceful protest on 2nd August 2013 at the MHRA Headquarters in London. http:// is linking people affected by all medications to build up a global campaign to raise awareness of poor medicine regulation. I have put a link to this page on the front page of the website. If you would like to get involved in our global campaign please email me and join the public facebook group (Fetal AntiConvulsant Trust) to discuss strategy and the development of the campaign. I look forward to hearing from you. thank you. emma friedmann
Drug induced autoimmune liver disease is a poorly defined and under-reported the liver disorder, and, probably, an underestimated liver disease [ 10 ]. Although DIAIH may develop after a prolonged use of a drug, it seems that DIAIH can be presented with acute hepatitis of unknown etiology. Female sex seems to be a risk factor for DIAH. Treatment decisions should be given according to patient’s clinical status and follow ups at acute presentations of DIAIH. There can be no treatment need, but, when needed generally a short course of immunosuppressive treatment can be sufficient without relapse opposed to idiopathic AIH.
