Haha I'm not sure how the case is closed. You didn't prove any point in that whole post haha.
There's an immense difference between "warning people of POSSIBLE side effects" and telling someone not to use something BECAUSE of possible side effects.
Every drug has possible side effects. So I dont know why you think its so great that your doctor told you not to do something because of the possible side effects. If every doctor didnt recommend any medications with possible sode effects then no doctor would ever prescribe a single medication.
So I'm not sure what deserves a "case closed". Just cuz your telling me that the derm did his job of telling you possible side effects? Lets get him a cookie haha.
All my derms tell me about possible side effects but like I said if doctors never prescribed any medications with possible side effects then they wouldn't have a job. And I specifically asked my 2 derms for a steroid which is safe for long term use and they both agreed on this one. And no offense to you and yours, but I trust my derms much more than I do yours.
And again your telling me not to take the advice of my derm about this, yet your entire argument and reasoning behind bringing this up is based on what your derms told you haha. Do you not see the irony in that?
