Steroid finder is a free, easy to use interactive application, that helps you to know, whether an over the counter purchased cream contains steroid or not. Currently, the database contains only the products marketed in India.
Many people in India, knowingly or unknowingly applies topical corticosteroid over their face. Most of the time, it is suggested by their family, friends, local pharmacists and even by General Practitioners to make the skin "bright" or for many other reasons. Soon the person finds it difficult to discontinue the cream (develops steroid addiction), and gradually steroid damages the skin in a way that can sometimes be difficult to treat even for qualified dermatologists.
This app is an initiative taken by ITATSA (IADVL Task Force against topical steroid abuse), in association with myskinmychoice.com to spread awareness among public and to halt this silent epidemic.
