What are the dermatologic effects of steroids?
“Glucocorticoids have several clinical effects on the skin: thinning of the epidermis and dermis resulting in a hyperkeratosis or in some patients, a fine peeling of the skin, visible vessels with thinning of the vessel walls resulting in easy bruising of the skin, atrophy of the adnexa or accompanying glands of the skin and alopecia or lack of hair regrowth because steroid puts the hair in a resting phase.”
