4 months in and the improve is coming thick and fast. When I first stopped using cortisone cream I became very dry and sore, I couldn't move and certainly couldn't leave the house or exercise without great discomfort, now the moisture is coming back into my skin, I can go out, drink and hang out with people... feeling really great.
This video is a bit frustrating because I am not actually that red, but i guess you have to take it any which way it comes. Believe me when I say I'm looking much better :)
I'm was 28 years old and had been recommended topical Cortisone by dermatologists since I was 13, because of this my skin became persistently red across my face, arms and neck.
The solution is to cut the cortisone completely, but this process takes between 9 months to 4 years to recover from and came with many horrific side affects.
The video above explains exactly what has caused the red skin, swelling and many other terrible symptoms that I've battled for the last 10 years. You can view all the posts on the blog by using the blog archive further down the page.
