Default He's been on steroids for over a year…..will this harm him in the long run?

Brutus has serious skin issues. His skin turns bright red all over and itches him like crazy. He rolls around miserable because of the itching. After trying many different foods and no relief from his itching, and at this point he was scratching himself till he bled. He had 2 skin infections from the scratching the Vet placed him on continuous steroids which he has been taking twice a day for a little over a year now. I am not big on medication use but have no idea what else to do for him. I also wonder if being on steroids constantly might eventually be harmful to him. Any advice or knowledge would be appreciated. Thanks!
