In view of the recent comments made by Dr. Vidal Haddad Jr:

First, according to the dictionary "Aurelio seculo XXI": Attack: the act or effect of attacking; assalt; assail. Accident: casual, fortuitous or unexpected event. Therefore, we understand that there are different interpretations, but not incorrections.

Second, with regard to the use of corticosteroids, they are used when the initial measures are insufficient and the patient continues to present with edema, erythema, pain/ discomfort at the site of injury, such as the case in which, after the introduction of prednicarbate cream, there was total regression of the clinical signs and symptoms.

We would like to thank Dr. Vidal Haddad jr. once again for his interventions and corrections. We respect his authority as an international expert on the subject. Every scientific discussion fosters great learning.

Yours sincerely,
