i used the cream for several years and i stopped it all of a sudden wanting to stop using it because i didnt want to grow dependant, but i didnt realize that i would get sick and my skin would be inflamed when i stopped using it. i'm no longer using it now, it has been about 8months but my face is still red and inflammed and i gained some weight, i think due to that. I've also experienced boils/pimpls all over my body for a time, i think caused by me stopping the use of the cream. it the boils/pimpls have lessened but still come in and out. Would a dermatologist be of help?
