At 4 months old my son developed baby eczema. Even though (at that time) I’d spent 17 years in the pharmaceutical business, I was completely lost how I will soothe my crying baby. He squirmed all night and woke up every hour to itch. We had no choice but regularly use “hydrocortisone”, a steroid that helps control itching and inflammation of the skin. I knew the serious unwanted effects of the steroid, but tried it anyway as I could not see my baby suffering. He used to bite and draw blood from his hands and other parts that he could reach: and rub his body on any rough surface to itch the parts he could not reach.
I researched for years and used all sorts of moisturizing creams, but had to consistently utilize the prescription hydrocortisone. Finally, almost unintentionally, I ran across a NATURAL product that has been clinically tried in the UK, Germany and Canada. Dermatologists have clinically tried this device on patients and found that over 80% of patients showed an extraordinary improvement of their eczema (and also psoriasis). The key ingredient in PsoEcze Care is an extract of mahonia aquafolium. This is a plant that’s native to the western United States and Canada, and has been utilized by native Indians for years. The plant is famous to have anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and very importantly anti-proliferative properties. This anti-proliferative property is essential for people that have problems with psoriasis. This is a condition of the skin that different from Eczema. But the medical treatments used are often similar. They’re both immune triggered diseases, and there’s no permanent cure at the moment.
Though both Psoriasis and Eczema are not usually life threatening, sometimes the medications used to manage these skin conditions have serious side effects. You will find about 7.5 million people in the US that have problems with Psoriasis and almost 30 million that have problems with Eczema. Many of these are children. Both conditions are managed by doctors by prescribing steroid topical applications initially and sometimes in serious cases injectables. These injectables have very, very serious unwanted effects that you should know about. Ask the prescribing doctor or your pharmacist about these germany steroids. Also when you are using steroid skin creams/ointments enquire about the long run effects and unwanted effects of these medications. Please, specially ask if you will use these medications on small children. I have often come across mothers that make use of a mild steroid cream to manage a diaper rash!
Don’t get me wrong these steroid creams are very effective. They provide relief immediately for sure. But remember it is a steroid!! Immediate gratification is what a steroid does. So should you have to use this type of “medication” please get all the information you may get, and then make an informed decision on utilizing a steroid.
Since Eczema and Psoriasis haven’t any cure right now, what the doctor/pharmacist really does is prescribe/dispense/recommend you medication/creams/ointments that will allow you to MANAGE the symptoms. Which means, all they’re doing is helping you (or the patient) have a better standard of living while managing this unfortunate condition. So even when the physical symptoms have gone away, the condition is still there, and it can flare up at anytime. I think all Eczema and Psoriasis sufferers should be engaged in this technique of managing their condition.
Consider alternatives. When you have to manage the outward symptoms, you will want to try and manage them with an all natural product? Why don’t you try and identify what triggers a flare up? Keep a log of everything you think triggered your flare up. Maybe it’s stress. You will find cases of children breaking up with psoriasis soon after their parents split up. I am aware a story of a female from London, England. During the next world war this young girl and her brother were in the streets of London when there was a bombing and her brother died right before her. Almost immediately, she broke out with red patches on the skin and was soon diagnosed as having psoriasis. (This lady by the way uses PsoEcze Care and said that after using this device was able to wear a skirt for initially since she’d psoriasis) There may be certain foods that are triggers for you. In the event that you smoke, I urge you to stop. Smoking is not going to assist you regardless of whether you’ve these skin conditions or not. However, smoking is a known trigger. Do not drink alcohol in access. Avoid stress. I am aware that is easy to say. However, make a habit of having regular exercise. Use up a sport or go to the gym regularly. This can assist in managing your stress. Eat healthy foods. And make an effort to use natural products to manage the skin condition. When you yourself have to use creams to manage your symptoms, could you not rather they be natural then steroidal?
There’s also a mistaken convinced that the steroid cream/ointment has cured the psoriasis/eczema. This might not be the case simply because the outward symptoms are not visible. They are often “swept under the carpet” for the moment. Any the continual usage of steroids could be building up long term problems. So do consider natural medications.
