The Eczema Treatment To Avoid At

This is an issue I’m very passionate about, and it’s because I’ve seen and read so many reports of people using this treatment and the devastating long term consequences they’ve faced with topical steroids.

 

Cortisone creams are topical steroids that you can buy over the counter or with a prescription, but to be clear: These are NOT for regular use, and should ONLY be used sporadically or in extreme cases.

 

Topical steroids are used to treat itchy skin, inflammation, and redness from bug bites to eczema and everything in between. At first…

 

They work! Hooray!

 

The itchiness and inflammation subside, everything looks great, and then...the redness comes back stronger and you need more cream...stronger cream...and the cycle continues until a day without topical steroids is the worst your eczema has ever looked in your life…

 

 

This is now called Topical Steroid Addiction and Withdrawal. As the cream helps reduce inflammation, it actually thins the skin and makes it weaker and more prone to another flare up, not to mention the long list of other devastating side-effects of long terms use like hair loss and hormonal imbalance!

 

It’s simply not worth it. A day without redness isn’t worth getting caught in this vicious cycle.

There are creams that address the full range of eczema related issues: itchiness, moisture, inflammation, and - more recently - skin damage.
