I know, I know...I've already Woo Hoo ed

Jul 11, 2005

I was reading through previous questions when I noticed that you mention that use of corticosteroids can cause a false negative result. I'm probably just being stupid (again) but I have been using a Hydrocortisone ointment for a skin condition for several years, could this in anyway cause a false negative?, its only a cream that is applied to the skin (mostly face). Am I just being paranoid?

Response from Dr. Frascino


Yep, just being paranoid. After all, you knew, you knew . . . and you already WOO-HOOed!

Don't spoil a wonderful WOO-HOO afterglow with needless worries, OK?

Congrats! Stay well.

Dr. Bob

She took a BITE OUT OH IT!
Last letter, I promise
