Roscea or Dermatitis?

by Kathy
(Mastic Beach, NY)

Dear Nanette,

I have been to three doctors - one primary care and two dermatologists. I have a rash on on my forehead and between the eyes and on the sides of my nose. Mostly blotchy and red. One doctor gave me Metronidazole which made it worse. It dried out my face and it became itchy and more red. Then I tried Locoid Lipocream. It helped but I was told to use it only for three days. I am looking for a natural product that will cleanse and moisturize. Please help.

Response to: Pityriasis alba
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hello,

First let me explain to our website viewers that Pityriasis Alba is a skin condition characterized by red, scaly patches that leave areas of scaling hypo-pigmentation, or lighter coloration. It should also be noted that Hydroquinone decreases the formation of melanin in the skin. Melanin is the pigment in skin that gives it color. That said, I am shocked that you were told to use such a cream with such a condition that is known to cause hypo-pigmentation. To begin, please take courage as you should know that the skin/body has a great propensity to restore given the proper care and health building ingredients. I would highly recommend first cleansing with our All Over Face & Body Wash followed by an application of our Face & Neck TheraCream if your symptoms are on the facial area or apply My Daughter's Hand & Body TheraCream if it is on your body area.

Please keep me posted on your progress.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Pityriasis alba
by: Anonymous

I'm 20, and was told by my dermotologist that i have pityriasis alba, and was told to use moisturisers such as QV ceam. I was also told to use hydroquinine 1%, for a short while, so I did for 7 days only. It have been more than a month, yet the white patches have not improved, and the ones on one side are getting bigger. What can I do? :(

Hello Kathy,

It can certainly be very frustrating trying to seek help only to end up in a worsened condition. As with most drugs there are potential side effects. Metronidazole has known possible side effects causing hypersensitivity reactions such as rash, itching, and flushing while Locoid lipocream side effects can include skin redness, burning, itching, or peeling, thinning of the skin, blistering. As a natural alternative I highly recommend first cleansing with our Face & Body Wash which is gentle and thorough followed by an application of our Face & Neck TheraCream which is deeply moisturizing and soothing while helping to restore balance in the skin.

Please keep me posted on your progress Kathy.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Atopic Eczema

by Austina
(Felixstowe, Suffolk, UK)

Hello,
My son has been suffering from terrible atopic eczema for just over a year. It's thick scabby skin that blisters up and itches a lot and sometimes we get bloody sheets where he's been itching himself.. We thought it might be an allergic reaction to something, but all the doctors put off the idea and have been giving us an endless supply of hydrocortisone creams. In the beginning it worked but every time we stopped using it, it got worse! Nothing has completely rid him of his eczema. I would like to try your creams and want to know how long to use it for?

by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Austina,

Watching a child suffer with atopic eczema can be so very challenging for a parent as relief for our children is sought. It sounds like you have been given the rounds of hydrocortisone creams and yet to no avail. Most times steroids only provide a temporary relief at best but also cause potential, harmful side effects. Not only this, but steroid use, upon cessation, almost always produces a "rebound effect" of the very symptoms you are trying to get rid of! Know that the body and skin truly do respond to natural, health building ingredients. I would recommend first cleansing with our FACE & BODY WASH followed by an application of our MY DAUGHTER'S HAND & BODY THERACREAM twice daily. These products are soothing, highly moisturizing and help stop the itching associated with atopic eczema. Most parents continue using these gentle products even after their child's symptoms are gone since they contain so many natural and wonderful ingredients.

Please keep me posted on your son's progress Austina.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Dermatitis Worsened By Hydrocortisone Cream

by Richard
(Australia)

Hi Nanette,

I think I damaged my face by using hydrocortisone cream for a few weeks for a dermatits condition. The skin became red and thin and I proceeded to use a cream like Aquaphor to create a barrier so it could heal. It actually became dry and flaky but then it started getting better and better. The other night I went into a hot jacuzzi and the next morning, I noticed the redness coming back. Two days later, it is even redder. Now what should I do? Have you heard of this before and will it ever go away permanently? Thank you for your help!

Response To Dermatitis Worsened By Hydrocortisone Cream
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Richard,

First, the discontinuing of anything harmful, such as steroid creams and such is very important for the healing process to begin.

You mentioned using Aquaphor and I must tell you that the number one ingredient in this product is mineral Oil which is the by-product of making gasoline from petroleum and since we use so much gasoline, it makes mineral oil very cheap for companies, therefore it makes the perfect (yet toxic!) filler. Further, the molecules are much too large to even penetrate the pores of the skin, so it sits on top of the skin with a greasy feeling and can actually make your problem even worse.

Our products work in a completely different way as they penetrate the 7 skin layers. First, wash with our FACE & BODY WASH which will gently cleanse your skin and begin repairing the skin layers without further drying your skin as so many soaps and cleansers do. Then apply our FACE & NECK THERACREAM morning and night. A thin layer is all you need as it quickly penetrates the 7 layers of skin and begins to unpack dry, damaged cells, lifting them to the surface and replacing moisture and nutrients to help restore your skin and reducing inflammation. The skin will respond quite readily to natural and wholesome ingredients such as you put on your skin in the way that it responds to natural and wholesome foods you eat and drink....so get ready to start seeing your skin return to a normal, balanced healthy state.

Please keep me posted on your progress Richard and contact me with any further questions you may have.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Hydrocortisone Made The Skin Under My Eyes Red, Sore & Itchy

by Julia
(UK)

Dear Nanette,

I've used a hydrocortisone steroid cream under my eyes for just over a week because I got really dry sore skin and it seems to have made them worse. Now I have red skin around my eyes and they are very sore and itchy.

What can I use to repair what the steroid cream has done and will my skin repair?

Unfortunately steroid use can produce redness, rash and sore dry skin and hyper pigmentation among other side effects.

Spent Hundreds Of Dollars - Nothing Worked!

by Tracey M.

My 80 year old father had spent hundreds of dollars and had seen several doctors about dry, peeling, bleeding, cracking skin on the tips of his fingers. He glued them, soaked them in coal tar, put topical ointments on them, wore gloves driving and working and absolutely nothing had helped. I was desperate to help him! I read your website information and ordered the My Daughter's Hand & Body TheraCream for him to put on during the day and the Double Strength TheraCream to put on at night before he went to bed. Now his hands are almost totally better and NO MORE BLEEDING OR CRACKING! It's such a relief to see my father with normal skin again....thank you!!

Steroid Creams Irritate Me

by Maria V.
(MN)

Hi, I came upon your website on Google while I was looking for something to treat dry sensitive skin. It seems like putting ANYTHING on my face irritates it. I've gone to 2 dermatologists, and both have prescribed steroid creams. They seemed to work at first, but now they seem to irritate me too. I've tried Aveeno, Eucerin and Cetaphil but they only make my skin more red, itchy, and irritated. I had dry patches on my eyelids, cheeks, around my mouth, near my ears, and then on my neck too. I tried just not using anything, but that made my face feel even more dry and almost like it was burning. I used your Face & Body Wash followed by your Face & Neck TheraCream and my dryness went away "fast"....I'm thrilled and wanted to thank you personally!

Steroids Made My Skin Worse

by Lauren M.
(Hoboken, NJ )

I have been dealing with some sort of a skin condition on my fore head for about 2 years. It started with one bump between my eyes and when I scratched it, it broke open almost as a blister would. It was definitely not a typical pimple because those usually heal and scab over and this never did. Over time I started noticing more bumps on my fore head as well as bumps on my nose and on my scalp. They are always raised, sometimes white, and tend to turn red when touched and they would itch like crazy. I tried many things (including seeing over 4 different dermatologists) as well as trying home remedies. Dermatologists that I’ve seen gave me prescriptions ranging from pimple creams to steroids and everything always made the problem worse. When I ordered these Aim 2 Health SKIN REMEDIES products, I was a bit skeptical, because I don’t always trust what I read online. I’ve been using the Face & Body Wash and the Face & Neck TheraCream on my face as well as the Herbal Shampoo Treatment on my hair for about a week and I’d say that everything is about 70% better. I’m very impressed and so happy to have found something that is finally bringing my skin back to its natural healthy state! Yours truly!

Pityriasis Alba

by Cathy
(New York)

Hello Nanette,

I came across your website because my 3 year old daughter has developed Pityrasis Alba. I do not want to put steroid cream on her since learning of the harmful effects this will have on her skin and body. I really can't believe my doctor did not tell me about the risks! That's why I would like to ask you what I can do to naturally help my daughter and get rid of the Pityriasis Alba on her face.

Thank you so much!

Response To Pityriasis Alba
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Cathy,

I commend you for doing your "homework" and refusing to put a harmful steroid cream on your young daughter! Natural remedies are the best and should be the FIRST choice parents consider for their children. Let me say for our website viewers that Pityriasis Alba is a common skin condition mostly occurring in children and can be seen as dry, fine scaled, pale patches on the face (although other parts of the body can be affected) with the pallor of the patches that develop appearing white and are not totally depigmented.

I would highly recommend the following products:

Use the FACE & BODY WASH which is a most gentle cleanser that will begin the healing process and add necessary moisture to the skin. Next, rub in a small amount of our FACE & NECK THERACREAM which is specially formulated for the more delicate and thinner areas of the face and neck. At first, you can even add a bit of sterile water to her first few applications to thin the cream somewhat and gradually add less water until you are applying full strength. This cream is very soothing and has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties as it relieves itching and soothes the skin rather quickly.

Please let me know if you have any other questions and I look forward to hearing of your daughter's progress.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

I buy steroidal cream and I use it on my eyelid. I thought it will pull up my eyelid but it just got worse and my upper and lower eyelids are starting to sag :( what will I do? Please help me. I'm not talking about dramatic changes about my eyelids but I would love to do something to counter the effect of the steroidal cream I took.

Response To: I Take Steroidal Ointment On My Eyelid!
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Bryan,

Most likely, you have heard rumors that circulate around the globe that using steroid creams (such as Preparation H and similar products) would somehow tighten the skin and give an instant lift to the eyelids. This is an old tale with absolutely no validity. The fact is, the skin under and over the eyes is very, very sensitive. You should know that any steroid cream has immunosuppressive properties and produces side effects which include: thinning and discoloration of the skin, easy bruising, permanent dilation of certain blood vessels, burn marks on skin, liver and kidney damage and a weakened immune system.

I have two very natural and deep penetrating products that I highly recommend to you to care for your eyelids. Use them daily! First, what you wash with is so very important and I can't emphasize this enough. Many products on the market today are loaded with harsh, drying ingredients that strip the natural PH of your skin leaving it further vulnerable to the effects of sun, wind and environmental air. Use our gentle and pure FACE & BODY WASH that will deeply cleanse AND MOISTURIZE your skin even before you apply cream. This is an important feature since your cleanser should leave you with a plus moisture level and not a minus moisture level!

Next you will want to apply our FACE & NECK THERACREAM twice daily. This rich cream penetrates all 7 layers of skin to restore much needed moisture from the bottom up to the very skin surface. This is very important for the delicate eye area! Further, our FACE & NECK THERACREAM will stop any itching and reduce any redness you are experiencing as it has anti-inflammatory properties. You will notice an immediate plumpness and fullness to your skin as balance begins to be restored. Both of these products are formulated with skin nurturing ingredients that repair, restore and replenish natural moisture levels in the skin.

Please keep me posted on your progress Bryan as you begin your new regimen.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Pharmacy Products And Cortisone Don't Work!

by V.L.
(USA)

My 7 year old daughter has had eczema on different parts of her body and she once had it on the lid of her eye. The doctor gave me a cortisone cream but I was very worried using it near her eyes as the pharmacist told me to be careful not to rub her eye as it could cause blindness. I couldn't help but tell myself how can they give me such a dangerous cream? So I stopped using it. She also had dry skin on her elbows, on the ankles, at the end of her scalp in the back of her head, under the hair right at the top of the back neck. She has not stopped scratching (the poor thing), day and night. While she is sleeping I even noticed she gets sweaty and hot and of course this makes it worse. I have tried every single product in pharmacy that you can imagine (or almost), which mentions anything to remove or helps relief eczema, I also had cortisone cream as the doctor prescribed, but it didn't work very well and it came back after a couple of weeks, so I decided to stop it. I used your products and my little girl now has relief and you can't believe how that makes me feel as a mom!! Thank you!!

Lichen Sclerosus


(Canada)

Hi Nanette,

I was told by my doctor that I have Lichen Sclerosus. It is in the very early stages - white patches and no itching yet. She prescribed ratio-Clobetasol ( clobetasol 17- propionate). I do not want to take cortisone but with no other choice at the moment I have been applying it now for 5 weeks. I see some improvement but the ointment burns sometimes and I really do not want to continue until I get thinning of the skin.

I don't know if it is something else totally different but now for the past 3 weeks I feel nauseous on and off for most of the day. Not terribly sick but the feeling one gets just as they are starting to feel car sick. I also find I am experiencing some slight dizzy spells. I do not take any other medication, just supplements.

Thank you

Response To: Lichen Sclerosus
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello,

Fortunately, your Lichen Sclerosus is in the very early stages. For our website viewers, let me explain that Lichen sclerosus is a skin problem that causes thin, wrinkled white patches that are itchy and painful. If the skin tears, bright red or purple spots may appear. Genetics, autoimmune diseases, and changes in hormone levels may be part of the reason. It is not caused by an infection and is not contagious. Although anyone can get lichen sclerosus, women who have gone through menopause are more likely to get it. This skin problem can affect any part of the body but in most cases it occurs on the skin of the genital area.

Clobetasol is a topical (skin-applied) corticosteroid medication with a very large number of side effects that I feel strongly, those who use this steroid cream should absolutely BE MADE AWARE OF! They include all of the following possibilities (and yes, two of the side effects include nausea and dizziness!)
*burning, dryness, irritation, itching, or redness of skin *headache *increased redness or scaling of skin sores *skin color changes *skin infection *skin rash *softening and tearing of the skin *thinning of skin with easy bruising
*acne or oily skin *unusual tiredness, weakness or dizziness *lack of healing of skin condition
*numbness in fingers *nausea *painful, red, or itchy pus-containing blisters in hair follicles
*unusual increase in hair growth, especially on the face *unusual loss of hair, especially on the scalp *backache *blurring or loss of vision
*increased blood pressure *irregular heartbeat
*irregular menstrual periods *irritability
*loss of appetite *depression *rapid weight gain or loss *swelling of feet or lower legs
*unusual bruising

I have several natural recommendations which I list below. Know that the body has a remarkable ability to heal, repair and regenerate once given the proper tools to do so.

1) Wash the affected area with our FACE & BODY WASH which is a hypo-allergenic and gentle body wash which contains absolutely no chemicals or ingredients that can be toxic to the skin and will begin the repair process.

2) Apply our HAND & BODY THERACREAM carefully to the affected and surrounding areas. A thin application is all that is necessary. This will penetrate the patches, reduce inflammation and stop the itching while doing so.

3) Take, twice daily, our INTESTINAL BOWEL CLEANSER to remove impacted waste matter and toxic build up as well as assist in cleansing the liver and kidneys. This will greatly help your immune system as well.

4) Take our GREEN POWERHOUSE to provide your body with the widest array of vitamins, minerals and enzymes needed by the body to repair and replenish. This formula also contains the highest amount of chlorophyll which further cleanses every cell as well as promotes healthy cell growth and development.

Please let me know how you are doing as you begin this program and contact me with any questions you may have.
Warm Regards,
Nanette

NEVER EVER use hydrocortisone in puberty

by Stacy
(Oklahoma)

My daughter developed some unknown condition with giant hives when she was preteen, we were given atarax and told to use hydrocortisone cream when needed. I had no idea about the destruction it would do to her skin. We used it religiously for weeks to months while she slowly got over the virus or whatever. A year or two later when she started developing and getting taller, her skin developed HORRIBLE stretch marks that cover her entire butt, up to her lower back, horizontally across her thighs from the knee up, and hips. She can't even wear a bathing suit without being mortified about these. They are not normal stretch marks, they are on every inch of her skin. Her body image is ruined for life. If I could sue that doctor I would, nobody warned us about how long to use it. Anyway, don't do it. I feel guilty every day.

Hydrocortisone Use On My Face - HELP!

by Maria
(Wisconsin)

Hi Nanette,

I recently had a chemical peel done in a doctor's office, and I misused the hydrocortisone gel cream they made me purchase. It was supposed to be applied for a maximum of 5 days, but I mistakenly used it for 12 days (as a result of VERY poor communication on the part of the secretary who gave me the home care kit containing the cream in question).

My worry is that I have thinned out my skin; and the worst is that I applied the gel cream on the under eye area as well, seeing as how it was to be mixed with a neutral moisturizer. I feel so stupid.... :-(

How do I know/can I tell if my overuse has caused thinning of the skin (esp. in the under eye area) or other damage?

Your advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you very much in advance!
Maria :-)

Response To: Hydrocortisone Use On My Face - HELP!
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Maria,

The side effects of using hydrocortisone can be apparent very quickly for some and over time for others. The facial area is especially susceptible to damage from steroid creams due to the fact that the skin here is some of the thinnest on the body. In addition to the fact that you just had a chemical peel which in and of itself is quite traumatic to the skin.

I would highly recommend using our FACE & BODY WASH and our FACE & NECK THERACREAM which will both help to repair and restore your skin in a health building way thereby bringing back balance and tissue strength. The ingredients in these products will help to rapidly heal the facial skin 7 layers deep. Don't despair....the body truly responds to natural ingredients.

Please keep me posted on your progress Maria.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Severe Reaction to Steriod Based Cream

Hello,

Stumbled across the site here while frantically trying to research ways to prevent scaring from my latest rash (the second of two) I received from a slip up (again) at physical therapy with being exposed to a steroid based solution while undergoing treatment for a torn disc in my back. I have attached two photos. One from the smaller and original rash from 9-10 weeks ago which I fear has scared, and the latest rash from this week on Monday. I am very nervous about this entire affected area leaving a massive scar and my surgeon has me using Caladryl as of yesterday the June 11th. You can see the outline from the first rash above the latest massive outbreak. What else can I be doing besides staying out of the sun and using the Caladryl until my body heals? Like I said, I’m very concerned about this. Thanks for the time and help…

Regards,

- Anders in Arizona

Response To Severe Reaction To Steroid Based Cream
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Anders,

Thank you for contacting me and sharing your situation. Your pictures say it all! I too can feel your frustration and dismay at the gross negligence that has occurred to you not only once but twice! This certainly is an outrage. For our website viewers I will clarify what Caladryl is: Caladryl Lotion is a topical analgesic drug product. It temporarily relieves pain and itching associated with rashes, minor skin irritation and minor cuts. It contains Pramoxine HCI and Zinc acetate as its active ingredients.

The problem here is that drug containing products such as this only alleviates the symptoms but has no effect on the healing process. Here is what I strongly recommend your using immediately to begin repairing and restoring the damaged skin tissue. Apply our MY DAUGHTER'S HAND & BODY THERACREAM to the affected areas twice daily. Not only will the natural ingredients begin to repair the highly damaged skin 7 layers deep but will additionally stop any itching and inflammation you are experiencing. This amazing product also contains anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties to prevent any infections from occurring. I would also recommend your washing with our FACE & BODY WASH as this will not dry out the affected areas as most washes, soaps and cleansers do and further, it will begin the healing process as well as add necessary moisture to the skin tissues.

Please keep me posted as to your progress Anders and I wish you rapid recovery!

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Response To Damaged Skin
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello,

Certainly, one of the physically as well as aesthetically damaging effects of long term use of steroid creams is thinned, wrinkled skin. Of course, discontinuing usage of these creams is paramount to recovery. I tell my clients that the body and skin seek to rejuvenate and given the proper tools, you can experience a great recovery and renewed health from the wrinkled skin you are presently experiencing.

I have three very natural and deep penetrating products that I highly recommend to you. Use them daily! Your skin will respond to the following treatment much like the body responds to natural foods!

First, what you wash with is so very important and I can't emphasize this enough. Many products on the market today are loaded with harsh, drying ingredients that strip the natural PH of your skin leaving it further vulnerable to the effects of sun, wind and environmental air. Use our gentle and pure FACE & BODY WASH that will deeply cleanse AND MOISTURIZE your skin even before you apply cream. This is an important feature since your cleanser should leave you with a plus moisture level and not a minus moisture level!

Next you will want to apply our FACE & NECK THERACREAM for facial and neck areas and our MY DAUGHTER'S HAND & BODY THERACREAM for all over body use twice daily. These rich creams penetrate all 7 layers of skin to unpack dry, damaged cells and restore much needed moisture from the bottom up to the very skin surface. Further, they have anti-itch and anti-inflammatory properties. You will notice an immediate plumpness and fullness to your skin as balance begins to be restored. Both of these products are formulated with skin nurturing ingredients that repair, restore and replenish natural moisture levels in the skin.

Please keep me posted on your progress as you begin your new regimen.

Seborrheic Dermatitis, Rosacea and Eczema!

by Steve Mitchell
(Los Angeles, CA)

Hi,

I am Steve, a 47 year old male. I'm one of those 1000's currently locked into the dermatologist/pharmaceutical cycle of expensive/hazardous topical agents who wants to transition to natural remedies. I have been diagnosed over the years with a variety of names for my condition anywhere from seborrheic dermatitis (most recent) to rosacea, eczema, and another word I never could remember.

This condition severley affects my legs and face, and mildly in other places. On the body, it becomes splotchy dry red areas; on the face very red on the surface around the nose and sides of face. I have used desnodin for the face and Olux-E (past year on a few outbreaks)for the legs . The outbreaks have worsened over the years to the point that I have become dependent on these products. Recently I was given a prescription for a anti-imflamatory skin wash of sodium sulfacetamide 10% for the face to help reduce the use of desnodine. Unfortunately, I believe my face is overly reliant on the desnodine.

With the worsening, I can't seem to get a grip on my skin condition anymore and am looking for natural therapy to help prevent these outbreaks. I want to become completely independent of the medicines.

I've read your introduction and information about seborrheic dermatitis and see your recommended products. I would like to know what you think about your recommended products for my face and what I should buy to help me to treat and prevent this worsening condition.

Thank you,
Steve Mitchell

Response To: Seborrheic Dermatitis, Rosacea and Eczema!
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Steve,

First, I commend you for seeking out natural remedies for your condition. After years of steroid creams you will also want to consider an internal program to cleanse and restore your bodily systems. You see, drugs, whether ingested or topical, always produce a number of possible side effects. These side effects include: thinning and discoloration of the skin, easy bruising, permanent dilation of certain blood vessels, burn marks on skin, perioral dermatitis, liver and kidney damage and a weakened immune system. Not only this, but steroid use almost always produces a "rebound effect" of the very symptoms you are trying to get rid of!

I strongly recommend that you first, cleanse old, dry and damaged cells and environmental debris with our FACE & BODY WASH. This is an important step towards removing clogged skin 7 layers deep. Next, to replenish and restore the skin use the following: for the facial area, use our FACE & NECK THERACREAM twice daily. For the hands, arms, legs and torso, use our MY DAUGHTER'S HAND & BODY THERACREAM also twice daily. These creams are formulated with health building nutrients and humectants that will relieve inflammation, repair skin cells and fill the 7 layers of skin with the moisture it needs to remain healthy and strengthened and to restore balance once again.

Internally, I recommend cleansing and high nutrition as this impacts our lives and health greatly! Take our INTESTINAL BOWEL CLEANSER which removes impacted waste matter and toxic build up as well as assist in cleansing the liver and kidneys while building the immune system as well. Follow with our GREEN POWERHOUSE which provides the body with the widest array of vitamins, minerals and enzymes needed by the body to repair and replenish and promotes healthy cell growth and development.

Please keep me posted on your progress Steve.

Response To Hydrocortisone Is Not Helping My Psoriasis
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello,

First let me start by saying that hydrocortisone creams DO NOT heal the skin. Rather, they act to suppress the symptoms of your condition and often make the psoriasis worse so the condition never seems to go away. Further, using hydrocortisone cream comes with many health risks as well. These side effects include: thinning of the skin, easy bruising, permanent dilation of certain blood vessels, burn marks on skin, liver and kidney damage and a weakened immune system.

Here is what I highly recommend you do to repair your skin:

1) Begin by using our FACE & BODY MOISTURIZING WASH to cleanse with. This is a hypo-allergenic wash with anti-bacterial properties that will begin unpacking the thick patches of psoriasis. Further, it will add much needed moisture to your skin which is so necessary in the repair process. So many commercial soaps on the market today actually strip away the natural PH of the skin and deplete it of its natural moisture levels. This only exacerbates the problem!

2) Next, apply our DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM to the affected areas twice daily (morning and evening being the best times). This "double the formula" cream quickly penetrates the thick patches as well as the 7 layers of skin and begins to unpack the dry, damaged cells lifting them to the surface while filling the cells below with much needed moisture. In as little as 3 to 5 days you should begin to see a dramatic response to your psoriasis condition.

Follow these steps and please keep me posted on your progress.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Eczema on my Face.

by Evette Collins
(UK)

Hi, I have had eczema most of my life. It got better when I was in my teens but I have never been free from eczema. I am now 35 and don't think I have felt as stressed out about having eczema because it never used to be on my face so I could hide it but I now have it on my neck and face (mainly under my eyes). The doctor gave me hydrocortizone cream to use and it cleared up but once I stopped using it my skin would flare up again. It has left deep wrinkles under my eyes and it doesn't feel dry but it looks it and is very red, sore and itchy. It's making me very sad but I can't cry because the years hurt my skin. I'm worried that I'll always have the deep wrinkles and look 20 years my age:-(

Response to: Bad Case Of Eczema
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Hannah,

I understand how devastating the eczema condition can be and how the many years of steroid use can affect the body in a negative way. But please take heart as I have mentioned to Evette on this page that the body/skin has a great propensity to recover given the proper ingredients. I recommend following the regimen outlined for Evette and remember that patience and consistency are important when using natural products that seek to soothe and restore much needed moisture.

Please keep me posted on your progress Hannah.

Bad Case of Eczema
by: Hannah

I am 31 and for most of my life I've had eczema mainly on my hands. I went to many doctors and used many different creams and trying natural products . Then in my late 20's I started getting eczema under my eyes which is usually aggravated by the weather. It has effected my self-esteem and I no longer work as my immune system has been affected. Like that other poor lady my condition has made me sad at times and I've had to stay at home.

Response to: Eczema on my Face.
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Evette,

First, please take courage and know that the body has a great propensity to recover given the right, health building ingredients. Eczema can certainly be devastating especially when it appears on the facial area. I must tell you that any use of hydrocortisone creams may have damaging side effects. These side effects include: thinning and discoloration of the skin, easy bruising, permanent dilation of certain blood vessels, burn marks on skin, itchiness, perioral dermatitis, liver and kidney damage and a weakened immune system. Not only this, but steroid use almost always produces a "rebound effect" of the very symptoms you are trying to get rid of! For your facial eczema I would highly recommend first cleansing with our very gentle Face & Body Moisturizing Wash followed by an application of our Face & Neck TheraCream twice daily. For the body eczema cleanse with the above mentioned wash and then apply our My Daughter's Hand & Body TheraCream also twice daily. These products provide the right ingredients to help relieve and restore skin to a healthy state.

Please keep me posted on your progress Evette.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

juvenile plantar dermatosis

by Emma Byrne
(United Kingdom )

Hi, I'm very interested in your products. My daughter is 4 years old and has had juvenile plantar dermatosis on her feet since about 3 and a half years ago. I have hydrocortisone cream from the doctor as an ongoing treatment and have just been referred to a pediatric dermatologist to hopefully help resolve her problems. I've been told that she will 'just grow out of it' at around age 11(?!?) And that we should just carry on using the cream. I expressed concerns about using the cream continually but the doctor said as it was such a small area on her feet that it would be all right. I'm currently looking into alternatives as I'm not comfortable using the prescribed cream for what could be 10 years or more! I'm wondering which of your products you could recommend for my daughter's feet?
Thank you for any information or advice
Emma

Response to: Juvenile Plantar Dermatosis
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Emma,

It can be very frustrating when a tradition/medical solution to our loved ones skin issues seem so fleeting and distant. Certainly any amount of time using steroid cream/hydrocortisone can produce unwanted side effects. These side effects may include: thinning and discoloration of the skin, easy bruising, permanent dilation of certain blood vessels, burn marks on skin, itchiness, perioral dermatitis, and a weakened immune system. Not only this, but steroid use almost always produces a "rebound effect" of the very symptoms you are trying to get rid of! More and more parents, like yourself, are seeking natural, healthy alternatives. For our website viewers let me explain that juvenile plantar dermatosis is the name given to a skin problem on the feet of children where the sole of the forefoot becomes shiny, glazed, scaly with oftentimes painful cracks. I would highly recommend first cleansing with our Face & Body Wash which is gentle and thorough followed by an application of our Double Strength TheraCream twice daily. This special cream is super thick and rich to penetrate the thicker skin of the foot area.

Please keep me posted on your daughter's progress.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Hydrocortisone cream and discoloration of my baby's (facial) skin

by F. Ashley
(The Netherlands)

Hello Nanette,

I have a 3 month old baby that has started to develop eczema already after 6 weeks. I was not surprised since I myself am, unfortunately, very familiar with eczema. I had taken the 'known' precautions to me, like using neutral, non-perfumed detergents and hypoallergenic skin products from the beginning. But despite my efforts to keep his skin well-oiled his condition has worsened. Of course the doctors prescribed using 'greasy' creams and ointments and also hydrocortisone cream.
After using it a few weeks my baby boy's beautiful brown skin tone has turned white, his face mostly but now also spreading to his neck and shoulders as the rash has spread there as well. I noticed the skin is thin, with certain places showing his blood vessels and his facial skin easily bleeds. He is more and more able to scratch himself so his chest is covered with scratch marks, it's so sad to see. He is also crying much at night and in the mornings, it seems it irritates him more than in the daytime. I really am not a fan of using the hydrocortisone creams but I have nothing else to fight the inflammation of his skin. The vaseline based creams don't do much good either, especially in areas where he sweats easily.
I see you recommend using your products here to different people and for different problems. I have a few questions regarding our situation:
- Are any of your products especially for babies? He is so young and I would hate to experiment and cause any more damage but I do believe that anything is better than these horrible hormone creams and am willing to try something that is not as aggressive.
- What would you recommend specifically for his facial skin and neck areas as well as the skin folds?
-I live in Europe (The Netherlands), will it be possible to order your products and have them shipped and delivered here?
- Would you recommend using the vaseline based products still in combination with your health products to keep the skin moisturized? He has extremely dry skin that will crack or scale if not 'oiled' regularly.

I hope you can answer my many questions. Thank you!!

Response to: Hydrocortisone cream and discoloration of my baby's (facial) skin
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hello,

For any new parent, It can be very frustrating trying to handle baby's skin condition and in fact, can be very heartbreaking. First know that you have done many of the "right" things in keeping certain harsh ingredients such as non-perfumed detergents etc from his skin. However, with the use of hydrocortisone, unfortunately you are seeing the awful side effects that come with its usage. These side effects include: thinning and discoloration of the skin, easy bruising, permanent dilation of certain blood vessels, burn marks on skin, itchiness, perioral dermatitis, and a weakened immune system. Not only this, but steroid use almost always produces a "rebound effect" of the very symptoms you are trying to get rid of! Further, vaseline based products contain an ingredient called petroleum which is inert and contains no nutritive value and in fact the molecules are too large to even pass the pores and basically sits on the skin with a "plastic wrap" effect. Our products contain many highly nutritive ingredients that soothe and deeply moisturize the skin. I would recommend first cleansing with our gentle Face & Body Wash followed by an application of our Face & Neck TheraCream for the face and neck areas and for the body area/folds I recommend our My Daughter's Hand & Body TheraCream. For young children you can start by adding some sterile water to the first few weeks application of cream to dilute it and allow moisture to be gradually added to the skin. Then add less and less water until applying full strength. We have moms and dads around the globe that have found great success using these products for their children.

Please keep me posted on your son's progress.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

When I Stopped Steroid Creams The Eczema Came Back!

by Erica
(USA)

You have no idea how bad my son's eczema was! It has been an ongoing problem in just this one spot behind his right knee since he was about two months old. Steroids would make it go away quickly, but it would always return just as quickly as soon as I stopped using the steroids. I ordered your My Daughter's Hand & Body TheraCream and I kept using it several times a day (basically at most diaper changes but at least before and after bed) and it is so much better and, more importantly, I have peace of mind knowing I'm not allowing potentially harmful steroids to be absorbed through his delicate young skin. Thank you, Erica

14 Month Old With Eczema

Hi,

My 14 month old has eczema on his chin (really bad) and a few spots on the back of his legs. He used to have it on his cheeks, but that seems much better.

I was told to use hydrocortisone 2xs a day to treat it. I actually asked the doctor about the warnings I heard about and read with the cream, but was told that the low % sold over the counter wouldn't do that so to keep using it.

Recently, I was just told by an allergist I took my boy to, that it in fact does cause harm! Thankfully, I've never used it for a prolonged period of time anyway, but I have been using it for several months off and on.

So my question is how do I know if any damage was caused internally or externally? How long do you have to be using the cream before these side effects set in?

Thank you.
concerned mommy...

Response To: 14 Month Old With Eczema
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello,

First let me say that I am so pleased that you did not use the steroid cream for a prolonged period of time and that you have stopped using hydrocortisone on your young son. Steroid and hydrocortisone creams of any % concentration carry risks and side effects with them! For our website viewers I will explain that these side effects can include: thinning and discoloration of the skin, easy bruising, permanent dilation of certain blood vessels, burn marks on skin, liver and kidney damage and a weakened immune system. Rather than focusing on whether he will show signs of damage in the years to come, we will talk about how to rebuild the integrity and balance of his skin while repairing his skin 7 layers deep with health building ingredients.

You mentioned that the skin on his chin has very bad eczema and there are a few spots on the back of his legs so here is the following recommendation I will give you for the proper care and treatment that is natural and long lasting. First, bath your son with our FACE & BODY WASH which is a specially formulated mild cleanser that contains only herbal ingredients that are organically grown and hypo-allergenic and safe enough for baby's skin. This will begin to add moisture to his skin and soothe the skin layers. After bathing, gently pat his skin dry with a soft towel.

Then gently apply our FACE & NECK THERACREAM as this is extremely important for his eczema treatment. This specially formulated cream will stop any itching while repairing and bringing balance back to his skin - restoring the normal function of the skin instead of just placating the symptoms. You can also use this cream on the few spots he has on the back of his legs. Remember that the most effective, specially formulated products are plant based, have a very rich emollient level and are loaded with nutrients.

At first, you can even add a bit of sterile water to his first few applications to thin the cream somewhat and gradually add less water until you are applying full strength. This cream is very soothing and will quickly reduce any redness and inflammation.

Please feel free to contact me with any other questions you may have and let me know how your little boy is progressing.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

My 1 Year Old Son Has Eczema On His Face

by Gabriel
(West Covina, Ca)

My 1 year old has had eczema on his face for the past 6 months. I started by using Aveno 1% hydrocortizone. It worked at first but just made it worse after about a week of using it. I have bathed him in non fragrance soaps and oatmeal baths and that hasn't worked. I also switched to non fragrance detergent and double rinsed his clothes. I recently bought Eucerin, Aquaphor and that has kind of maintained the redness but the eczema is still there. I have run out of options and would really like your recommendations. My son wakes up miserable every day itching and rubbing his face and it is really taking a toll on me and my wife. I am really interested in your products and would like if you can get back to me as soon as possible with your recommendations. Thank you!

Response To My 1 Year Old Son Has Eczema On His Face
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Gabriel,

It would be my privilege to assist you with my recommendations. Regarding the use of hydrocortisone, unfortunately most doctors do not inform parents of the many risks and side effects of using steroid creams. I am so glad that you stopped using hydrocortisone on your son when you did but for so many others who have used this dangerous drug for not only months but years, now suffer from its use. Side effects include: thinning of the skin, easy bruising, permanent dilation of certain blood vessels, burn marks on skin, liver and kidney damage and a weakened immune system. I highly praise you for seeking a natural alternative to help your son's eczema. This will make a huge difference in his recovery.

You mentioned using products such as Eucerin, Aveeno and Aquaphor, however, these creams can actually increase the skin's dryness levels because they contain mineral oil or other petroleum based by products. These ingredients have NO usefulness to the skin nutritionally and in fact, the molecules are too large to even pass the pores of the skin so the cream just sits on top and literally suffocates these pores thereby causing further dryness and damage.

Here is my recommendation Gabriel:

First, bath your son with our FACE & BODY MOISTURIZING WASH which is a specially formulated mild cleanser that contains only herbal ingredients that are organically grown and hypo-allergenic and safe enough for baby's skin. This will begin to add moisture to his skin and soothe the skin layers. After bathing, gently pat his skin dry with a soft towel.

Then moisturize with our FACE & NECK THERACREAM as this is extremely important for his eczema treatment. This specially formulated cream will stop any itching while repairing and bringing balance back to his skin - restoring the normal function of the skin instead of just placating the symptoms. Remember that the most effective, specially formulated products are plant based, have a very rich emollient level and are loaded with nutrients.

At first, you can even add a bit of sterile water to his first few applications to thin the cream somewhat and gradually add less water until you are applying full strength. This cream is very soothing and will quickly reduce any redness and inflammation.

Please feel free to contact me with any other questions you may have Gabriel and let me know how your little boy is progressing.

Hi Nanette,

My skin biopsy came back yesterday and my doctor says I have Seborrheic Dermatitis. My face is extremely red, itchy and scaly. My doctor gave me two steroid creams to use and it burned my skin and made it swollen.

Is there any cream I can use to control the redness, itchiness and flaky.

I would appreciate any suggestions.

Thank you in advance,

Marjorie

Response To Seborrheic Dermatitis - Red, Itchy, Scaly Face!
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Marjorie,

For the Seborrheic Dermatitis you are experiencing, I strongly recommend you NOT using the steroid creams any further as this is obviously causing you more damage to your skin. Here is what I recommend you do to clear up your seborrheic dermatitis:

First, wash only with our FACE & BODY WASH which is a hypo-allergenic and gentle wash which contains absolutely no chemicals or ingredients that can be toxic to the skin and will help bring your skin in balance. Then apply our FACE & NECK THERACREAM twice daily, which is a deep penetrating cream which will penetrate the 7 layers of skin and promote optimal functioning of the skin processes. It will reduce inflammation and redness and stop any itching while repairing the skin. All of our products are all natural and work with the body to repair and restore and just as the body responds to wholesome foods, the skin will most certainly respond to health building ingredients.

Please keep me posted on your progress Marjorie.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Red Eyebrows

I have been to multiple dermatologists for a condition they call seborrheic dermatitis and I was given multiple creams and steriods but nothing works and now I prefer to do all natural! It's only in the eyebrows where it is very red not flaky and no flakes on my scalp but it itches and becomes really red if I scratch or cry they look on fire! (that red) Help! Anything you recommend is greatly appreciated!

Response To: Red Eyebrows
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Jessica,

I'll start by saying that it doesn't surprise me that steroid creams have not helped your Seborrheic Dermatitis. You see, steroid use, at any level, can get into the blood stream and cause many problems. In addition, drugs force the body to produce a certain response that often goes against the body's natural function and design. Side effects from steroid use include thinning and discoloration of the skin, easy bruising, permanent dilation of certain blood vessels, burn marks on skin, liver and kidney damage and a weakened immune system. Many of our customers have gone through similar experiences and I will give you my strong recommendations.

First, the discontinuing of anything harmful is very important for the healing process to begin so I am thrilled you are seeking natural remedies. I will start at the scalp where you are experiencing dry scalp syndrome - itchiness and inflammation. I recommend our HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT which will bring much needed moisture into the layers of your scalp where the dryness begins as well as provide anti itch and anti fungal properties - this is important for dry, itchy scalp. For the Seborrheic Dermatitis on your face use our FACE & BODY MOISTURIZING WASH which provides a gentle but thorough cleansing but does not strip the skin of it's natural PH. It will begin the repair process deep down that your skin needs. Next apply our FACE & NECK THERACREAM for the delicate face and neck areas - focusing on the eyebrow area where you are experiencing redness. This cream has the amazing capability to penetrate the 7 layers of skin and unpack damaged cells, relieve itching and supply moisture and nutrients to repair and rebuild healthy, balanced skin. Remember, the body responds to health building ingredients!

Please keep me posted on your progress Jessica.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Dermatitis Troubles!

by Jordan
(Australia)

I have mild seborrheic dermatitis on my scalp and my doctor prescribed me nizoral 2%. He said to use it 2-3 times a week for 1 month, then to use Head and Shoulders Shampoo to maintain my dermatitis. The month of using nizoral is almost up and my dermatitis hasn't improved at all!!! I have followed the doctors instructions as well as the directions on the bottle, and yet I see no improvement!! I have had my scaly/flaky scalp for at least 2 months and I only have two more washes using nizoral and my scalp isn't improving and it's either the exact same or slightly worse! My hair loss has increased due to my flaky scalp and I'm freaking out! I have tried using water-soluble tea tree oil that had been diluted and applying it to my scalp (which I only started doing a few days ago) and my scalp is sort of improving (well I think it is). I am 13 years old if that helps. What would you recommend me to do?

Response To Dermatitis Troubles!
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Jordan,

I can understand your frustration and anxiety but rest assured that there is a solution. Know that your scalp will respond to natural ingredients just as the body responds to wholesome foods that one consumes. This is part of the reason your condition is not responding to the Nizoral shampoo as it is filled with a number of toxic ingredients. I will give you my strong recommendations to help your seborrheic dermatitis but you will also want to share this website and my personal response to you with your parents at their earliest convenience. Our website provides a vast amount of important information to help our viewers make informed decisions.

Follow these steps:

1) At night before bedtime, rub in our specially formulated therapeutic DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM into the parts of the scalp affected. This double strength formula is all natural and penetrates the thicker skin of the scalp deeper and faster. It has anti fungal and anti bacterial properties and further alleviates any associated itching. Allow the cream to absorb overnight into the 7 layers of scalp tissue.

2) Next, wash your hair and scalp with our HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT which is hypo-allergenic and filled with nutrients. These 2 products, together, will unpack dry damaged cells to the deepest part of the scalp and restore much needed moisture and assist your scalp in regaining a healthy balance once again as well as restore its proper PH.

Once your scalp condition is repaired you need only use the HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT to keep your scalp healthy and problem free.

Please keep me posted as to your results Jordan.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Hello,

It is so frustrating when our beloved children hurt as is clearly evident from the picture you included. As a mom, I certainly feel compassion for you. Some things I need to make you and our viewers aware of is that hydrocortisone use may produce side effects that can include: thinning and discoloration of the skin, easy bruising, permanent dilation of certain blood vessels, burn marks on skin, itchiness, perioral dermatitis, liver and kidney damage and a weakened immune system. Not only this, but steroid use almost always produces a "rebound effect" of the very symptoms you are trying to get rid of! We have many parents who have been in your situation who have used our products on their young ones and have received great results. I refer to this page which you can view anytime: http://www.skin-remedies.com/eczema-children.html. For the facial area I would first recommend cleansing with our All Over Face & Body Wash which is gentle yet thorough, (this wash can also be used for all over bath time). Follow this with an application of our Face & Neck TheraCream twice daily. To begin with, I suggest that you add 50% sterile water to the first week or so applications. Then gradually add less water until you are using the cream full strength.

Please keep me posted on your progress with your baby girl.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Eczema On My Cheeks, Nose And Forehead

by Chris
(Sussex, United Kingdom)

I have suffered with Eczema all my life, but recently my face has become infected. I'm not sure this is Eczema but it is located around my cheeks, nose and forehead. All my Doctor will prescribe is Hydrocortisone cream. I'm not at all happy at using this on a consistent basis. I don't know what side effects it can cause but I have had periods where I have felt sick, unable to finish meals, times where I feel I can't take a full deep breath. I am a fit person who does a lot of exercise. I haven't suffered with any of the mentioned symptoms prior to using the hydrocortisone twice a day. Could it be this that is causing these effects? The only reason I use it is because nothing else works. As soon as I stop using it, my face becomes dry and red. There are a lot of products recommended on here but I'm not sure which would work best for me.

by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hi Chris,

Most certainly, hydrocoritisone usage has been responsible for digestive disfunction, respiratory problems, and fatigue in addition to: thinning and discoloration of the skin, easy bruising, permanent dilation of certain blood vessels, burn marks on skin, liver and kidney damage and a weakened immune system. What I would recommend is to #1 - stop using the hydrocortisone cream. The two products that we have formulated that will work best for your condition are: FACE & BODY WASH and our FACE & NECK THERACREAM. Use these twice per day and as your condition clears you can continue with once per day. These products have anti inflammatory, anti bacterial and anti itch properties which is important while the skin is healing.

Please feel free to contact me with any other questions you may have and keep me posted on your progress.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Seborrheic Dermatitis

by Neal

Hi,
I've been having Seborrheic Dermatitis for years, and it's getting worse. I've been seeing my dermatologist, but so far no good results. He has been giving me steroid shots every time I flare up really bad like redness all over my face, swelling and stinging around my nostrils and below my mouth. The steroids definitely help, but I start to get all the bad side effects from it. I cannot use topical steroids since they burn like crazy. I recently got my allergy tested, I was allergic to Nickel (slightly) and highly allergic to quinoline mix ingredients. I noticed that my face keeps getting swollen, burning and stingy around my mouth, and my whole face turns brightly red. I've just recently had 2 dental implants done on both left and right molars (1 year apart), I believe I might be allergic to the metal installed which I am planning to call my dentist tomorrow to let him know. Maybe being allergic to Nickel can trigger my Seborrheic Dermatitis.

I've been miserable, my life has turned upside down, I really don't know what to do. I start to avoid all chemical stuffs, and use only natural products like Vanicream, Aveeno Shaving gel, Jojoba Oil, Tom of Main's Natural Toothpaste. Before, my Seborrheic Dermatitis usually comes and goes, and very manageable with my Ketoconazole shampoo which I alternate with my Neutrogena T-Sal. Before I buy your products, can you recommend or provide your inputs. I am desperate, depressed and need all the help I can get.

Thank you

Hi Neal,

Glad to hear that you have begun using the FACE & BODY WASH and the FACE & NECK THERACREAM products our company shipped to you and already seeing great results. You see, the skin will respond most readily to natural, health building ingredients just as the body responds to health building foods.

Certainly, when your INTESTINAL BOWEL CLEANSER and GREEN POWERHOUSE come in, be sure to start these right away as they will add mush cleansing and health building nutrients to you body and immune system.

As always, please keep me posted on your progress Neal.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

SD Follow up
by: Anonymous

Hi Nanette,
I started using your products today (Facial wash and Theracream), I noticed a big change, my face feels great, very comfortable, the swelling and redness start to disappear. It's still the first day, and I'm hoping it's not from the help of the last steroid shot that I received 5 days ago (supposed to last only 5 days). I had an allergy test today, everything is negative (food and environment), I guess narrows it down a little.
Anyway, I will use the other 2 products (Colon Cleanse and Green PowerHouse) as soon as I get them so I can get rid of all the toxic chemicals inside my body. You were right about all the bad chemical stuff that I have been putting on my face per MD's instructions, they did nothing but harm, I stopped applying these lotions 3 days ago,it was hard, then your products came along and did the magic. I have a question for you, I have been taking Vitamin E 400IU, Fish Oil, Calcium 500mg, One-A Day Vitamin, should I continue taking these meds ? I stopped taking Vitamin a month ago, I wasn't sure if that was the cause of the aggravation of my SD or not. Your inputs are greatly appreciated.
I will keep you updated on my progress, so far I am very happy.

Thank you

Neal

Hello Neal,

It is certainly challenging to say the least, when experiencing a condition such as seborrheic dermatitis that remains persistent. You mentioned receiving steroid shots every time your condition flares up and I have to tell you, that although you think you are receiving some relief, you are actually setting yourself back even further with your health at stake! Side effects include: permanent dilation of certain blood vessels, liver and kidney damage and a weakened immune system. Also, you mentioned a number of products you are using and you called them natural. What makes a product natural is their specific list of ingredients and not what the promotional material says about them. For instance, Vanicream, which you mentioned, contains mostly white petroleum and petroleum is what gasoline is derived from! White petroleum is in fact, inert and has absolutely nothing beneficial about it to our skin! In fact, the molecules are way too large to even pass the pores of the skin and so this gel sits on top of the skin not letting any moisture in and acting almost like plastic wrap, suffocating the skin!

My suggestions that I will share with you will include both internal as well as external recommendations in order to build your health inside as well as outside.

1) Take our INTESTINAL BOWEL CLEANSER (capsule or powder form), twice daily, to remove impacted waste matter and toxic build up as well as assist in cleansing the liver and kidneys. This will greatly help by building and strengthening your immune system.

2) Take our GREEN POWERHOUSE, several times per day, to provide your body with the widest array of vitamins, minerals and enzymes needed by the body to repair and replenish. This formula also contains the highest amount of chlorophyll which further cleanses every cell as well as promotes healthy cell growth, functionality and development.

3) Wash only with a hypo-allergenic and gentle wash which contains absolutely no chemicals or ingredients that can be toxic to the skin. Our FACE & BODY WASH will provide this type of purity and will help bring your skin in balance. Then apply our FACE & NECK THERACREAM which is a deep penetrating cream which will penetrate the 7 layers of skin and promote optimal functioning of the skin processes. It will reduce inflammation and redness and stop any itching while repairing the skin.

This is my complete recommendation for you Neal. Please let me know if you have any other questions and keep me posted on your progress.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

How Would I Know If Steriod Cream Has Damaged My Sons Skin?

by Sharon

Hi Nanette,

I have a two year old son who has had eczema for over a year now, especially bad on his face. The doctors always prescribes steroid cream and now I'm afraid that this will have damaged his skin. I've stopped using them and am trying pure shea butter which seems to help other parts of his body but his face is still very bad. What do you recommend? and how do I know if his skin has been damaged by the steroid creams, or will it only show signs when he is older? And is there anything I can do?

Kind regards.

Sharon

Response To: How Would I Know If Steriod Cream Has Damaged My Sons Skin?
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Sharon,

First let me say that I am so pleased that you have stopped using steroid creams on your young son. Steroid and hydrocortisone creams of any % concentration carry risks and side effects with them! These side effects include: thinning and discoloration of the skin, easy bruising, permanent dilation of certain blood vessels, burn marks on skin, liver and kidney damage and a weakened immune system. Rather than focusing on whether his skin has been damaged or will show signs of damage in the years to come, we will talk about how to rebuild the integrity and balance of his skin while repairing his skin 7 layers deep with health building ingredients.

You mentioned that the skin on his face has very bad eczema so here is the following recommendation I will give you for the proper care and treatment that is natural and long lasting. First, bath your son with our FACE & BODY WASH which is a specially formulated mild cleanser that contains only herbal ingredients that are organically grown and hypo-allergenic and safe enough for baby's skin. This will begin to add moisture to his skin and soothe the skin layers. After bathing, gently pat his skin dry with a soft towel.

Then gently apply our FACE & NECK THERACREAM as this is extremely important for his eczema treatment. This specially formulated cream will stop any itching while repairing and bringing balance back to his skin - restoring the normal function of the skin instead of just placating the symptoms. Remember that the most effective, specially formulated products are plant based, have a very rich emollient level and are loaded with nutrients.

At first, you can even add a bit of sterile water to his first few applications to thin the cream somewhat and gradually add less water until you are applying full strength. This cream is very soothing and will quickly reduce any redness and inflammation.

Please feel free to contact me with any other questions you may have Sharon and let me know how your little boy is progressing.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Contact Dermatitis From Over Exposure To Grout

by Nick
(Brisbane, Australia)

Hi,

I have been working in the mining and tunneling industry for the past 5 years. In the last two years I have contracted what I've been told by doctors is contact dermatitis from over exposure to grout.

I have been prescribed cortisone cream as well as prednisone steroids orally, and my hands are now at the stage where I cannot touch anything without them flaring up and cracking. I try to use moisturizers as much as I can but almost everything I've tried only works for so long until my hands instantly react to it and flare up.

I have started taking omega fish oil but would appreciate any suggestions.

Response To: Contact Dermatitis From Over Exposure To Grout
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Nick,

From your pictures it very well appears that you have developed contact dermatitis. You see, the skin has a "threshold" of resistance and after continuous exposure to a certain substance etc., the body reacts and can develop what is called contact dermatitis. Contact dermatitis occurring on the hands can become a severe condition and can be quite devastating to deal with.

You mentioned using moisturizers that end up not working after a time. Many people often try using an assortment of commercial products such as Aveeno, Eucerin and Aquaphor, however, these creams can actually increase the skin's dryness levels because they contain mineral oil or other petroleum based by products. These ingredients have NO usefulness to the skin nutritionally and in fact, the molecules are too large to even pass the pores of the skin so the cream just sits on top and literally suffocates these pores thereby causing further dryness and damage.

You also mentioned using prescribed cortisone cream which is a type of medicine known as a corticosteroid (or steroid). What you must know, is that if corticosteroids are used for long periods of time on raw or broken skin, they are absorbed into the body more readily. This increases the risk of local side effects such as skin thinning, a decrease in the production of natural hormones by the adrenal glands, swelling, skin irritation, redness, itching, burning sensation, rash, discoloration of the skin, easy bruising, permanent dilation of certain blood vessels, burn marks on skin, liver and kidney damage and a weakened immune system and many times a fierce return of the condition.

I highly recommend our MY DAUGHTER'S HAND & BODY THERACREAM to be applied a minimum of twice daily. This cream is hypo-allergenic and will relieve inflammation as it repairs and restores the skin 7 layers deep. It also has anti bacterial and anti microbial properties giving your hands an added layer of protection.

You may also want to consider using our FACE & BODY MOISTURIZING WASH which will not deplete the PH of the skin as most soaps and cleansers do but will begin the healing process and add much needed moisture to the skin layers.

Internally, fish oil is very good to take but I would also highly recommend our DMAE Supplement, which is a naturally occurring substance that protects the integrity of cell membranes. This is critically important because without this valuable supplement, the deterioration of cell membranes can lead to susceptability to dermatitis, eczema, and psoriasis. DMAE is a potent, site-specific free radical scavenger. It has demonstrated antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that make it an important skin care supplement. One gel capsule a day is all you need.

Please keep me posted on your progress Nick. (Note: any orders shipping outside the USA will need to be placed at our sister website which handles our International customers).

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Ongoing problem with allergies and skin

by Christine
(Canada)

Thinned out skin on my arm

Thinned out skin on my arm

Thinned out skin on my arm Back of my arm

I have been trying to get rid of this for almost 3 months now. First mistake... over using cortizone cream on my arm to try and get rid of it which it has actually gotten worse since all then. I've started using coconut oil to at least help with the dryness of the skin. Everything I use is for sensitive skin. Laundry soap included. I essentially treat my skin like it was a babies skin. I've had this issue on and off since I was a baby and not much really seems to fix this issue. It's only on the one arm though which is odd to me. It's almost non existent on the my left arm. The right arm is the issue and it's also on my eye lids and under my eyes as well. Hopefully someone out there has some suggestions. All I know is that after all of this I am throwing out the steroid cream because its only making it worse when it rebounds any way.

Response to: Ongoing problem with allergies and skin
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Christine,

It can be extremely frustrating dealing with a skin condition since a child. It sounds like you have been trying different products and cortisone creams to remedy your skin issue. Continued use of topical steroid creams such as hydrocortisone cream can cause the skin to develop a resistance (called tachyplaxis) to the medication as well as potential side effects. These side effects include: thinning and discoloration of the skin, easy bruising, permanent dilation of certain blood vessels, burn marks on skin, itchiness, perioral dermatitis, liver and kidney damage and a weakened immune system. Not only this, but steroid use almost always produces a "rebound effect" of the very symptoms you are trying to get rid of! For your face and arm area I would recommend first cleansing with our gentle yet thorough Face & Body Wash followed by an application of our tube of My Daughter's Hand & Body TheraCream for your arm and our Face & Neck TheraCream for your facial eyelid area. You can apply twice daily or as needed and the skin truly does respond to health building ingredients.

Please keep me posted on your progress Christine.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

No Hydrocortisone For Me!

by Susie B.

It is with great excitement that I send you this email thanking you for the wonderful products on your website! Within THREE days the rash that I had been battling for over a month, is now nearly completely vanished!

About six weeks ago I noticed that a rash was developing around my mouth, due to allergies and contact dermatitis. Since I am on a mission of primarily using only healthy and organic products, I ruled out hydrocortosone and steroids (which was recommended to me).

In my quest to prove others wrong, I thankfully stumbled onto your website and found your TheraCream product for face and neck. I couldn't wait to receive it! Upon the first usage that evening I immediately felt this wonderful soothing sensation. The next morning, I had ALREADY seen a difference to the rash. For the next three days I diligently applied the cream both in the morning and in the evening and I am proud to say that after only three days, my rash is nearly gone!

What a wonderful and amazing product. And what a blessing to have gotten it on your website. Thank you very much and I am wholeheartedly recommending your products to other friends whom I know. (p.s. I would have taken pictures for the before and after; however, my cell phone photo would not do it any justice.) Susie B.

After Almost A Year Of Using Hydrocortisone I Found You!

by Carrie Gear
(PA, USA )

Hi there,

My three year old son had eczema all over his body and it had then spread to his eyes. He was prescribed hydrocortisone, of course, but I had reservations about putting it on him day after day. I worked in a natural food store for nine years and I had felt that I had exhausted all the natural options I could think of and did not want him to suffer any longer. After almost a year of using hydrocortisone I stumbled upon your website and was so excited to try your products. I was amazed at how quickly they worked on his poor skin and how much better he looks and feels because of them! Thank you for caring enough to make these miracle working creams and wash!

Thanks For Putting Some Really Good Products Out There!

by Tina C.
(CA)

Hello Nanette,

Several months ago I went to a dermatologist and she told me that I had sebborheic dermatitis. She gave me something in a 1% solution that she thought would take care of it. I had a very itchy, red face and scalp. No help at all, so I went back and saw the doctor again. This time, the dermatologist said, "We don't know what this is, exactly, so let's just hit it with everything!" She gave me a hydrocortisone cream (2.5%), a stronger fungal cream, an antibiotic, and another pill to treat yeast infections." That should do it, right? That didn't work, either, and may have even worsened the situation. Back I went! This time they said, "We think you have rosacea" so she gave me more pills/more creams." Didn't help, and once again, possibly even worsened it a bit. I had been out of town for 7 weeks, visiting our grandkids in VA, and during that time, with the rosacea medication, decided to stop taking everything almost as soon as I got there. My face felt a bit better after that, but right before I came back home to CA, it had started getting worse again, so I decided to try Clinique's creams for rosacea. Oh boy, was that a mistake!!! After one application of the cream, my face flared up unbelievably, it sucked any moisture that was still in my skin right out, and I had horrible flaking/ peeling all over my chin area and forehead, along with intense itching.

I had to do something!!!!!! I got online, reread all the things about the various skin conditions, and decided myself that I obviously didn't have rosacea, but rather sebborheic dermatitis. I also looked up websites that had creams and shampoos/face soap that would especially treat this condition. I decided to try your Face and Neck Theracream along with your All over Face and Body Moisturizing Wash, and Herbal Shampoo Treatment and now my skin looks amazing!! With your face cream, not only did it completely reverse the flaking/dryness, but I can honestly say that my skin looks better than it did before this whole thing started, if you can believe it. I hope this is an encouragement to you! Thanks again for putting some really good products out there.

by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Maria,

It is very sad that doctors who prescribe steroid creams do not clearly present the side effects that are possible with both short and long term usage. The specific side effects of Darmovate NN (which is known as a topical corticosteroid) can include the following: skin irritation, redness, rash, itching or burning, and allergic inflammation of the skin (contact dermatitis). That you have used this steroid for almost 2 years has certainly caused serious irritation to your once beautiful skin. I highly recommend first cleansing with our very gentle All Over Face & Body Wash followed by an application of our Face & Neck TheraCream twice daily. Take courage Maria and know that the skin truly has the propensity to repair given the right health building ingredients.

Please keep me posted on your progress Maria.

Nanette

Hello Tapia,

Accidents like yours can happen! The skin on the face and especially the eyelids are the thinnest skin on the body and as such, can be super sensitive and need extra special care when a it comes in contact with an irritant. For your facial rash I would highly recommend first cleansing with our All Over Face & Body Wash followed by an application of our Face & Neck TheraCream twice daily.

Please keep me posted on your progress Tapia.

Can thin damaged skin on palm and fingures be cured?

by Sam
(Canada)

Hi,
My son is 16 years old and he's gotten very thin skin on his hands due to extra usage of hydrocortisone. I feel very sorry for him, because he can not make them wet or it itches and wrinkles. So now he can not even enjoy swimming with us in the pool. Doctors have destroyed his hands. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Sam,

It is so very sad whenever I hear about how extensive usage of hydrocortisone cream issued by doctors have caused pain and have damaged the skin of the users. This makes it difficult and sad for the parents and other family members as well as you have described your son not even being able to participate in swimming with his family. Use and overuse of steroid cream definitely can produce side effects! These side effects include: thinning and discoloration of the skin, easy bruising, permanent dilation of certain blood vessels, burn marks on skin, itchiness, perioral dermatitis, liver and kidney damage and a weakened immune system. Not only this, but steroid use almost always produces a "rebound effect" of the very symptoms you are trying to get rid of! I would highly recommend your son cleansing with our All Over Face & Body Wash followed by an application of our My Daughter's Hand & Body TheraCream whenever he washes during the day. We have a number of customers around the globe who have experienced similar damaged skin from steroidal use and have received great relief with our products. You see, the body/skin truly does respond favorably to health building ingredients that soothe and help restore.

Please keep me posted on your son's progress Sam.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Anal Cortisone Cream - Severe Diarhea

by Mark
(Wichita)

Had a severe bladder infection and given Cipro 1000 mg for 14 days. Upon completion, had two days of severe diarrhea but felt OK. Mowed the lawn on my John Deere next day and damaged my tailbone. My thought was the cipro caused the weakened tailbone cartilage.
Back to doctor - given hydrocodone and 2.5 percent cortisone cream for anus. After 6 weeks, still had diarrhea and major anal pain - no driving or sitting and constant pain and I mean pain. Talked to sister about getting a new doctor and finding skilled help. Her suggestion was to stop all meds right away. I did this. It is now five days later and I am almost healed. Never suspected the cortisone cream but that was the culprit. Thought I was about to die...
