For God's sakes, Stop using pred!!!

If you do not frequently use steroids for arthritis, find a way to stop using them for itch.
Our profession has made great medical progress in the treatment of arthritis; limiting steroids use.
We need to do the same for allergies for the EXACT SAME reasons.
What are you really treating with the steroids?
Lets stop the slow, insidious destruction of our patients with steroids; PLEASE!

Helpful hints:
Treat LUMBAR itch with flea control!
Treat FOOT itch with allergy testing or Atopica!
Treat BUTT itch with a food trial!
Treat LEATHERY skin with antiyeast shampoo and ketoconazole!
Treat RASH with antibiotics!
