Want to see the percentage of steroid in psoriasis cream. Where to get it tested?

Good Morning Doctors, I have been using a unbranded cream & recently realised that they use steroids. I wish to get this Cream tested to understand the percentage of steroids use as I had been applying the same since last 2 years on my full body due to Psoraisis - Skin disease. I am from Mumbai & is there any centre where I can get this tested? Regards, Sameer

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. The percentage and the kind of steroid used in the preparation is usually in the cream's package itself. I think that you will do well with getting it tested at a laboratory if it isn't labeled. Most chemical laboratories are equipped with testing for the steroid percentage. I hope this helps.

Take care and have a lovely day!
