Red Skin Syndrome or steroid skin syndrome is caused from the overuse of steroid creams.This  is causing unecessary suffering in people all over the world. 
The only remedy is to slowly coming out of it by reducing the amount of cream very slowly.

The problem is the QUADRIDERM  has affected your bodies natural cortisone production and slow withdrawal of cortisone will allow your body to slowly come back up to speed regulating it's natural levels. Sudden change in cortisone strength should be avoided. It is better to taper off very slowly so your body can catch up.
The withdrawl process is basically two steps forward and one step backward,so be patient,reduce the quantity and number of applications very slowly and the end result would be your good skin back,but after may be many months.
