Need advice for my eczema under my eyes.

by Sara

Hi,
I was wondering if you have any advice on eczema.
I'm 17 years old and for the past year and a half I have been using the hyrdocortisone cream. My doctor didn't tell me that I was only meant to use it for few weeks and now I have discolouration under my eyes. The colour under my eyes are a dark brown colour and I just need closure, even if nothing works.
Thank you.

Hello Sara,

It is so unfortunate that doctors are not instructing their patients properly as well as not providing enough information about the harmful side effects of using hydrocortisone creams/steroids for any length of time. These side effects include: thinning and discoloration of the skin (hypo or hyper pigmentation), 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 when you stop using steroid creams this almost always produces what is known as a "Rebound Effect" or "Rebound Phenomenon". These terms refer to the tendency of some medications, when discontinued suddenly, to cause the return of the symptoms it relieved either in the same area or another area.

However, take heart Sara and know that the skin has a great propensity to repair and restore given the proper health building ingredients. I would highly recommend first cleansing with our All Over Face & Neck Wash followed by an application of our Face & Neck TheraCream. Patience and consistency are needed to produce the results you are seeking. We have so many customers around the globe who have had similar experiences as you have had and have had their skin color restored over time.

Please keep me posted on your progress Sara.

Warm Regards,
Nanette
