Treatment for side effects of Advantan on face


Posted : 06/27/2022 3:19 am


So my dermatologist prescribed me advantan (methylprednisolone aceponate 0.1% w/w) for my eczema but I heard him incorrectly and have been applying it to my face for a bout a 2 months (yes I'm an idiot). 

My next visit with my dermatologist I told him about it and he advised to start reducing the amount by putting it on every other day for 2 weeks, and then twice a week for 2 weeks afterwards. Once I completely stop using it I can start using tretinoin for my acne. 

I did as he followed but 5 days in, my face started flaring up, got red then started turning dark and got discolouration in my skin and started peeling.

Is there anything I can do to stop my skin from peeling and fix the discolouration that's safe to use while on advantan?

Call or visit your doctor immediately I would say. It's your face, so don't mess around.
