i hope i caught your attention with that title.
i’m just hopping in to write a short entry because after almost 5 years off steroids,
i’m starting to know a little more about the situation i’m in.
TSW (topical steroids withdrawal) should not be used interchangeably with RSS (red skin syndrome).
to put it simply:
if TSW is a cause, then RSS is an effect.
you quit steroids, you experience symptoms that can be described by the RSS.
but TSW is not equals to RSS.
TSW will be corrected as long as you quit steroids and give your body time,
but RSS? you might need medical/nutritional/holistic intervention if you’re not getting better over time.
erythroderma is a term that closely resembles the symptoms encompassed in RSS,
it doesn’t just go away on it’s own if your body is unable to regenerate itself after the trauma it went through.
now by the power of google, i believe you can read up on that if you think my idea is too radical for you to swallow.
of course, i’m not a doctor.
but i’ve been in this shit long enough to realize that you really have to do something about your situation if it ain’t improving.
i noticed children tend to recover fully with more success than adults do,
i believe this is partly due to their vitality (since they’re young and has more energy), hence they don’t need much external help to stimulating their body’s healing abilities.
adults are different. our bodies are battered, and look what happens when you’re sick and fatigued?
you don’t clean your house as often as you use to, junk piles up, stuff that are broken aren’t replaced because that’s not your priority right now.
same thing goes for your body. makes sense?
you’re sick, and if you do not have enough energy to fix up all those blows you’ve dealt the past few decades,
it ain’t gonna start fixing itself.
obviously i’m not going to recommend medication because i’m in no position to do that,
secondly i do not believe that medication is the answer to help you recover your health.
you should already know by now that drugs were never the answer to good health.
instead, i’m going to point you guys in the direction of nutrition and gut health because that is the most scientific non-medical thing that has been shown to make an impact on one’s health.
go on and find out as much as you can about all the different gut healing diets that’s available.
do the entire healthy lifestyle package, you have nothing to lose here because if it doesn’t help out with your skin,
you’ll just end up with a healthier lifestyle and a healthier body (which should technically lead to your skin clearing up).
if you’re not opposed to the idea of alternative healing, you can do your own research on that too.
bottom line is, DO SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR HEALTH.
the sooner the better.
and if you can do it under the guidance of an experienced practitioner, you might just find your way a lot sooner.
