You can buy some topical corticosteroids "over-the-counter" without a prescription. For example, for dermatitis, you can buy the steroid cream called hydrocortisone 1% from your pharmacy. Do not apply this to your face unless your doctor has told you to do so. This is because it may trigger a skin condition affecting the face ( acne or rosacea. ) Long-term use may also damage the skin. On your face this would be more noticeable than the rest of your body. So usually only weak steroids are used on the face. Those which are suitable are prescription-only.
We saw modest improvements in validated HRQoL scores with all anti-IL-5 agents in severe eosinophilic asthma. However these did not exceed the minimum clinically important difference for ACQ and Asthma Quality of Life Questionnaire (AQLQ), with St. George's Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ) only assessed in two studies. The improvement in HRQoL scores in non-eosinophilic participants treated with benralizumab, the only intervention for which data were available in this subset, was not statistically significant , but the test for subgroup difference was negative.
In the end, many factors go into choosing among the inhaled steroids, some based on known differences between the medications, some based on personal preferences. The same is true when choosing among the anti-hypertensive medications used to treat high blood pressure. Often it is necessary to try one of the medications: if it is works well, causes few or no side effects, is convenient and not excessively expensive, you are likely to continue with it. If it fails to meet one or more of these criteria, you and your doctor now have the "luxury" of other preparations to try until you find the one best for you.
