PFS and a link with TSW?

More and more people I come across are suffering with Topical Steroid Withdrawal (TSW).

In a frighteningly similar scenario to us , as it seems just the small application of a corticosteroid for a few days can cause massive eruption of dermatitis, body wide. There’s s one girl I follow on Instagram who last applied a topical steroid over 2.5 years ago and is still suffering .

Obviously I’m not suggesting it’s the exact mechanism as PFS as Baylor has shown it is the gene silencing that is primary indicator , but there must be a similar blue print between the 2 syndromes where the body is stuck in a feedback loop, long after discontinuation of the substance ?
