Billdance, well done on your Liver Flush but bear in mind you have to work on your gastrointestinal health and immune system aswell. Also you will almost certainely need to help/speed the process along by treating it from the out side aswell. But I would be very cautious of drug type steriod creams as they only suppress the symptom by driving the problem deeper into the skin. Moreover they also put strain on the liver as this is the only organ that can break these drugs down. However, if you do decide to come off the steroids do it in a controlled and gradual manner so you dont shock your system into too much of a reaction. By the way Vitamin A creams or liquid are very affective and can have steroid like benefits but without the nasty side effects. So consider that as a good substitute. However, you should still use them sparingly and strart reducing usage shortly after seeing the beneficial effects then just replace with a good skin emollient. That prevents your system adapting to the vitamin, which in time would only reduce its effectiveness against flare-ups. Hope that helps....
