Recovery from cortisone addiction which sent my skin very red and very dry for years and years is near the end!! For so long I was told I had terrible eczema, when in fact all I had to do was stop taking cortisone. Now 11.5 months off the steroids and I'm looking and feeling fabulous!!
A friend sent me this and I couldn't help but share it. I think I'm about 6 months away from being fully healed, and this summer (approx 6 months away) I am going to be brown as a berry!!
Throughout this recovery I have continually given myself things to look forward to, to work towards. This is one of those thing!
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.
