Side affects of cortisone

A quick update, almost 5 months into my recovery from cortisone steroid use, prescribed by not just one skin specialist, but hosts of specialists and GPs.  The side affects of cortisone use are horrendous, the knowledge of how and when to prescribe them poor, and the cases of people going through the horrors that I've seen enormous.

It's incredible how many people have found this blog, suffering from the side affects of cortisone steroid usage for what they were told was eczema, but was actually being brought on by the very drugs they were given.

The knowledge in the marketplace is very limited, if you know anyone going through the side affects of cortisone steroid usage, or think they may be similar to me, please show them this blog or ask them to e-mail me.  If I had been using them for a few more years, I shudder to think what would have happened!

  1. Hi Josh!
    You are looking so much better! I followed your blog for months now.
    It gives me hope that my hair will stop falling out soon. Every day I am still loosing a lot...I am in almost 4 months TSW now. My eyebrows grew back already but I lost half of my long hair and still loosing. :-( Very depressing for a woman..
    Keep on doing the youtube thing it is great to listen to updates like that! :-D
    I was bedridden for 2 months out of my TSW. Saturday was my first day out of the house. I agree with going out and enjoying life and how it improves our skin. Since then I went to the shops..visited friends and the last 2 days I had huge improvements to my skin.
    I have TSW head to toe. But I am less red now, like a really sun burnt person..very dry flaky...etc.
    Hey, you make me feel like a lazy person that you managed to work through this!! LOL
