Across my journey I've been meeting lots of other sufferers, Aussie's, Americans, Asians and Europeans. My friend from work introduced me to his girlfriend and immediately we diagnosed her as also being a sufferer. It is just so common, you wouldn't even believe!
What I take a lot of heart from, is that the cure is all so easy. All you need do is stop using the cortisone. Sure there are a lot of symptoms along the way and it's not a pleasant next stage of your life, but recovering from red dry skin is an amazing feeling.
Good luck to everyone
