I have been on steroids (Kenalog injections monthly) for the last 8 months and before that frequent courses of Prednisolone. I discovered yesterday how fragile my skin had become when I bashed my shin on the open dishwasher door. I looked down expecting a bruise to be appearing and saw a large laceration (won't go into details, but it was not a pretty sight) and was so shocked. Visited A&E for the first time for a non asthma reason and was treated - leg looks like a jigsaw puzzle now. I looked up this type of laceration on the internet only to discover that it could take 6 weeks or more to heal.
Just wanted to say to others on steroids, please be really careful of your skin.
