Advice & Tips: I used this cream for the widespread folliculitis on my face and it was coincidental with a massive eruption of impetigo due to undiagnosed eczema herpeticum. I stopped using it immediately and a day later was given antibiotics, and 48 hours later was given anti-virals due to the severity of the symptoms. I can't comment on the cause vs. effect of using this cream but would not use steroid cream again now I know I have HSV.
Cost: $50-99 monthly
