Should I be concern about Cushing?
I am 21 y/o f, that has been taking corticosteroid medication for awhile now. I was recently reading an article about a women who had Cushing's Syndrome. I went to do more reading about it since I was curious. I saw on the Mayo website that sometimes corticosteroid medication can lead to Cushing's syndrome. I dont take the oral corticosteroid medication but ointment and cream corticosteroid medication. Should Cushing's Syndrome something I should be worried about? There were other side effects listed but I do not have all of them. Such as weight gain, stretch marks, acne.. but Im also not sure if these side effects are just naturally occurring. The only reason why I am concerned is because I do use corticosteroid medication. Is Cushing's syndrome something I should be concerned about and bring to my doctor? If so, how would I even approach them on the topic? Im not even sure if atopical corticosteroid medication can cause Cushing syndrome like the oral drug.
