Steriod Responsive Dermatoses: 

Skin conditions that respond to treatment with topical corticosteroids are called, simply enough, the steroid – responsive dermatoses.  These conditions are a diverse group – as tough to treat as plaque psoriasis and as easy to treat as pityriasis rosea. 

These steroid-responsive dermatoses include generalised eczema, atopic dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, contact dermatitis as well as some forms of psoriasis. They are all characterised, however, by symptoms that respond to the anti-inflammatory, vasoconstrictive, antimitotic, and immunosuppressive effects of topical corticosteroids.

Topical corticosteroids play an essential role in the treatment of many skin conditions.
