Are there any side effects for continuous use of lobate?
Hi I was prescribed to use Lobate for rashes on my face, when applied on the entire face my complextion changed from wheatish to fair. I started to use it regularly . Is it advisable to continue the application of the ointment? What are the side effects?
I can understand your concern and after reading the query it appears that you may suffer from steroid abuse.
Lobate cream contains steroid and shouldn't be used without a dermatologist's prescription. On its prolonged use it can cause thinning skin with red irritated skin or even hair growth. It is not at all a therapy for acne.
I suggest you to use proper sun protection. You can use Azelaic acid or Kojic acid creams under dermatological guidance only. These can be used for a long period without any side effects. This may take few weeks of the time to resolve your problem so have patience.
