Stephanie Davis shed tears of pain after suffering from an illness that resulted in a swollen face.
The former Hollyoaks actress, 29, revealed to her followers that she suffers from smoking-in-place syndrome, which leaves her with cuts and skin on her face.
Taking to her Instagram Stories, Stephanie says her doctors have “relapsed [her] “turned off” with topical steroids a year ago after her skin went bad.
Unfortunately, she explained that her body had become “addicted” to the ice cream.
“I’ve had a lot of flare-ups,” she says after trying to stop taking the cream. “In the morning it was painful and burning, I couldn’t even turn my neck. My eyelids were pulled down, I couldn’t even move my eyes. My eyelids were cut above and I cried.
“When you stop taking steroids, it spreads to different places, so it’s all in my groin. I’m basically like a scaly snake.”
She explains that she has an “uncontrollable itch” and when she wakes up she “scratches [herself] till death”.
Former CBB star Steph added: “I cried because I felt so unattractive – my face was disfigured.
“Now my face is very painful, the skin is very thin.
“I cried because my eyes were about to open.”
Steph is currently spending time indoors as she buys creams and products, but hopes that her experience will help others.
According to the NHS website, topical corticosteroids are a type of steroid medicine that is applied directly to the skin to reduce inflammation and irritation.
They can come in several forms, including creams, ointments, lotions, and gels.
If patients stop using topical corticosteroids after long-term continuous use (usually more than 12 months in adults), they may experience a withdrawal reaction.
Side effects of withdrawal may include redness or change in skin color, burning, stinging, itching or peeling of the skin, or discharge or open sores.
