In some countries, such as Mexico, there are very few laws or restrictions in place when it comes to where to buy steroids. It’s possible to get them in pharmacies without a prescription, and some even obtain them from veterinarians. Keep in mind that while this practice is considered legal in these countries, there are very strict laws that prevent you from carrying steroids across international borders. These penalties often include jailtime and large fines, and they can have lifelong impacts. If you choose to purchase anabolic steroids for sale in other countries, do so safely.
A common mistake is to be too cautious about topical steroids. Some parents undertreat their children's eczema because of an unfounded fear of topical steroids. They may not apply the steroid as often as prescribed, or at the strength needed to clear the flare-up. This may actually lead to using more steroid in the long term, as the inflamed skin may never completely clear. So, you may end up applying a topical steroid on and off (perhaps every few days) for quite some time. The child may be distressed or uncomfortable for this period if the inflammation does not clear properly. A flare-up is more likely to clear fully if topical steroids are used correctly.
