Short-term application of topical corticosteroids can help acute psoriasis patientsThe short-term application of topical corticosteroids and maintaining the results with a less potent agent can prove to be an effective option for treating patients with intertriginous psoriasis (IP) as per a recently concluded study by Alexander Kreuter, M.D, from Ruhr University of Bochum, Germany and colleagues.

This study was quick to crush down the myth that corticosteroids may bring some side effects with them in the long run. It showed that a short-term application of corticosteroids for acute diseases followed by maintenance treatment options with less potent agents is just the right way for treating ailments such as intertriginous psoriasis (IP).

Short-term Topical Corticosteroid can offer relief for Acute Psoriasis PatientsIn a study conducted by Alexander Kreuter, M.D, from Ruhr University of Bochum, Germany, and colleagues, it was suggested that a short-term application of topical corticosteroids and maintenance with a less potent agent can help patients with intertriginous psoriasis (IP).

These findings are expected to offer relief to all those IP patients who complain of intense itching, soreness, and irritation from sweating. It was previously believed that application of topical corticosteroids has side-effects with long-term use but this study refuted all such beliefs.

In a nutshell, it was remarked during the study that a short-term application of corticosteroids for acute disease followed by maintenance treatment with any of the less potent agents is regarded as a reasonable approach for the treatment of intertriginous psoriasis (IP).
