Do you or your child have eczema? If you answered yes, we invite you to take part in a survey addressing the long-term use of topical steroids.
Topical steroids are the mainstay treatment for eczema. Since eczema is chronic and long-term, many patients may use topical steroids for years – even decades. In addition, many eczema patients may also have asthma and allergies which may require the use of other types of steroids (nasal sprays, inhalers, nebulizers, oral steroids, eye drops, etc.).
This is where you come in.
Allergy & Asthma Network and the International Topical Steroid Awareness Network (ITSAN) are conducting an international survey on the cumulative use of steroids over time. The survey will result in a better understanding of the experiences of patients.
The survey is confidential and anonymous and takes about 20 minutes to complete. It is important that you answer all of the questions. As a bonus, upon completing the survey, 50 people will be randomly chosen to receive a $50 gift card.
Please help us inform the medical community about the health effects and total steroid load from the patient perspective.
