Long Time Steroid User Needs Help!

Hello Nanette,

I just received my order of the TheraCream and Body Wash and am very excited! I have been a very long time steroid cream user and unfortunately have been using it at my discretion without any guidance (over 10 years) The doctor had prescribed me a very potent one which I had been using in the groin area for what I "thought" was psoriasis. Like many people, I have been so blind to the negative effects of these steroids, but have been off of them for a month now and will not go back. Needless to say, the rebound effect in that sensitive area has been huge, as well as looking like my skin has been burned and bright red. I am so used to instant gratification because of the steroid creams usual response but I know I need to be patient. My question is: Is it possible for this to take quite some time to heal? I have been using the TheraCream for 3 days now with very slight improvement. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you!

Help for Hands and Arms
by: Jnet

I have used the most potent cortizone ointment for many years. It has been used on my knees, elbows, buttocks, hands and feet for psoriasIS. I am now in misery because of my thinned skin on my hands and forearms. I can't touch anything without a deep bruise or skin tear or crack in tips of my fingers.

topical steroid cream withdrawal
by: Peter

Having seen my wife suffer from Atopic Dermatitis for as long as I have known her, I can sympathize very strongly with sufferers. My wife is currently withdrawing from its use after 10 years of daily full body topical steroid cream coverage. The side effects of the first month of withdrawal have been been shocking to watch but now the bad times seem to be over. The side effects of withdrawal are extreme facial swelling, redness and unbelievable skin defoliation on her face. It goes in cycles. Please read Clinical Professor of Dermatology Dr Rapaport's medical paper on the withdrawal. This will help you a lot. After one month, my wife has a long way to go with the withdrawal but her skin is already much thicker. There's not much help from the dermatologists on this one. Good luck.

Hello,

First, don?t despair as given the right ingredients, the skin has the capability of restoration. You should know that the active ingredient in Advantan Ointment belongs to the group of medicines called corticosteroids and as such can have serious side effects. These side effects can include itching, burning, redness (erythema), or blistering (vesiculation) in the area of the skin ailment, skin becoming thinner, the appearance of a network of tiny blood vessels, pink/purple "stretch marks" and acne like appearance of the skin, hair follicle inflammation (folliculitis), excessive hair growth (hypertrichosis), and perioral dermatitis (break out around the mouth).

Here is what I recommend you use for your symptoms: 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 product chemicals, sun, wind and environmental air. Use our gentle and pure FACE & BODY WASH that will deeply cleanse your skin and begin repairing your skin even before you apply cream.

Next you will want to apply our FACE & NECK THERACREAM twice daily focusing the area around the mouth and lips. This hypo-allergenic cream penetrates all 7 layers of skin to unpack dry, damaged cells and relieves inflammation and pustule build up(if any) and restores much needed moisture from the bottom up to the very skin surface helping to restore balance. 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.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Hey there...I'm 17 years old and I've been using Advantan Ointment for over 3 years around my mouth area. I tried to get off it and the withdrawal symptoms are TERRIBLE (severe dryness and itchiness, darkening of skin, bumps,and a whole lot of other unpleasant stuff)...and it's on my face (so you can imagine the embarrassment). So I started using it again..I'd really appreciate it if you can recommend something that I can use around my mouth area that will help me. I really don't want to be on these steroids forever =( thanks for your time...:-)

Hello,

First, please feel encouraged! Based on the great success experienced by so many others with similar situations that have used our products, you can and should expect great results. It saddens me to think that the medical profession is not monitoring the prescribing of harsh and damaging steroid creams to unsuspecting patients. To use steroid cream for such a great length of time can certainly devastate the body and cause a tremendous "rebound effect" when steroid use is stopped. When switching to natural remedies, patience and consistency are very important. Tissue is being repaired and restored 7 layers deep and to do this may take time, especially if there has been a number of years of toxic absorption. You see, since the body has a great propensity to repair given the proper ingredients, it will respond positively much as when we intake wholesome foods.

Please feel free to contact me with any other questions or concerns and keep me posted on your progress.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

White Patches - Help Me Please

by A.S.
(Trinidad)

I dyed my hair approximately two years ago. I slowly developed white spots on my hair line, white patches on my face and white spots on my fingers. I have been to two dermatologists and three doctors. I have seen no improvement. My fingers are dark on the 'inside' of my hands. I did several blood test, all came back negative. However the doctor, did say that I am anemic. He said my immune system is weak, due to high levels of stress.

I looked at picture of one of your clients from Florida, who had a white patch behind her right ear. I have almost the same condition. Please give me advice on what natural remedies or products I can use to fix this.

Response To White Patches - Help Me Please
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hello A.S.,

I can't tell you how toxic hair colorants are to the body as they are quickly absorbed through the scalp. Sometimes a reaction is noticed right away and at times it can develop over a certain amount of time as yours did. Because your white patches are accompanied with a weak immune system, my recommendations will cover both external as well as internal body care.

For External Skin Care:
For the white patch behind your right ear I recommend our DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM as this is specifically designed for the thicker skin in that area. Apply twice daily and it will quickly unpack the dry, damaged cells that lie 7 layers deep and will bring much needed moisture for skin repair.

For the white patches on your face I recommend our FACE & NECK THERACREAM as this is formulated for the much thinner skin on the face and neck areas. Apply a thin coat twice daily.

For your hands apply our HAND & BODY THERACREAM which will quickly repair the patches and any cracks and splits and restore the skin to healthy wholeness.

You may also want to consider any damaging affect the dye has had on your scalp by using our HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT to restore the proper PH to your scalp and hair.

For Internal Body Care:
Take, twice daily, our INTESTINAL BOWEL CLEANSER (capsule or powder form) 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.

Take several time per day, 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 keep me posted on your progress A.S. and take care.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Urea Cream

by Alan
(Rochester, NY)

I have been prescribed urea cream from my podiatrist for the bottom of my feet. I was wondering if I can use the same cream on my chafed hands which looks like the psoriasis I have on my elbows? I also read on the internet to wash my hands before and after applying urea cream. Can you please comment on this?
Thanks,

Response to Urea Cream
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hi Alan,

I would have some questions for you before I can sufficiently answer your questions. What is the name of the prescribed urea cream? Does it contain steroids or is it a "prescribed over the counter" product? Is it working to restore the bottom of your feet? I would need the answers to these questions to help me know what exactly it is you are presently using.

A natural urea cream such as the creams we have formulated, can be used anywhere on the body without a need to wash your hands after applying - why wash off a health building cream?
I would say that all urea creams are not the same. Putting urea in a base of steroids, petroleum and other harmful and toxic chemicals is not going to build health to your skin overall. It really does matter what your urea cream ingredients include. We have placed the highest, most natural ingredients in our entire product line because we know how important it is to feed the skin only natural and healthy nutrients.

I would recommend being an avid "label reader" and I look forward to hearing the answers to the above questions so I can help you further.

Please keep in touch Alan.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

A blessed day to you Nanette. I am Sittie from the Philippines. I've been searching many sites for many years on what natural remedies can cure me until I find your site and read it. I have a scalp psoriasis and red spots on my body. But worst is on my scalp that make me feel uncomfortable. I hope you can help in my problem....

Hello Sittie,

I also wish you a very blessed day! I am very happy that you have been seeking natural remedies and that you have found our informative website. First let me address your scalp psoriasis. Actually scalp issues are some of the most common conditions as there are so many possible causes. What I recommend is that you first apply a light coat of our Double Strength TheraCream on the areas of your scalp that are affected. You can leave that on for at least several hours or overnight and then wash with our Herbal Shampoo Treatment. These products help unpack the dry damaged cells and will bring necessary moisture down to the skin layers. They are also the proper pH for the scalp which is a must when using anything on your scalp. Next, for the spots on your body I would first recommend cleansing with our All Over Face & Body Wash which is gentle and soothing and will begin the moisturizing process. Next I would recommend applying our My Daughter's Hand & Body TheraCream twice daily over the areas that display the red spots. Remember that the body/skin truly does respond to health building ingredients.

Please keep me posted Sittie.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

9 Month Old With Psoriasis

by Tara Fox
(Whitewood, Saskatchewan, Canada)

My nine month old daughter has been diagnosed with Psoriasis. She has spots in her many creases, armpits, on her back, her ears and her bottom is just covered. The inflammation must be uncomfortable for her and the Doctor prescribed a 2% hydrocortisone cream which I am uncomfortable using on her delicate skin, especially in her arm pits and all the other creases. You also recommend herbal remedies. Lately I have been using echinacea oil and lavender oil in a grapeseed oil and just covering her after a bath. What herbal remedies could I use to help her - and how. She is so small. For now I will continue to breast feed her. Could we also give her a form of Omega 3 (like Krill oil)?

Thank you for your informative site and for the clear explanation of the dangers of hydrocortisone cream. Just what I needed as a concerned mommy.

Response To 9 Month Old With Psoriasis
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Tara,

I am so glad that you decided not to use the 2% hydrocortisone cream on your daughter. Unfortunately most doctors do not inform their patients of the many risks and side effects of using steroid creams. I highly praise you for seeking natural alternatives to help your daughter's psoriasis. This will make a huge difference in her recovery.

Notably, the essential oils you mentioned are a nice addition to your daughter's skin care, however, the most important factor missing is the skin's need for "moisture". Replenishing moisture with health building ingredients will help the skin repair and restore. Here is my recommendation Tara:

First, bath your daughter 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 her skin and soothe the skin layers. After bathing, gently pat her skin dry with a soft towel.

Then moisturize with our HAND & BODY THERACREAM (for all over body use - depending on where her psoriasis is located) as this is extremely important for her psoriasis treatment. This specially formulated cream will stop any itching while repairing and bringing balance back to her 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 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 will quickly reduce any redness and inflammation.

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

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Psoriasis can be a very frustrating condition for anyone experiencing its symptoms. It becomes especially challenging for the one suffering to be in public and carry on with work and other obligations. Please don't despair any longer but know that the skin truly does respond to health building ingredients. First cleans with our gentle yet thorough Face & Body Wash followed by an application of our Double Strength TheraCream which is formulated to penetrate the thicker scales of psoriasis. You can apply this nutritive cream twice daily or as needed.

Please keep me posted on your progress Ellen.

Psoriasis On My Head

by Anonymous

Hello Nanette,

I would like to tell you that your Double TheraCream is working wonders and what a difference it has made in my life so far. For almost 13 years, I had developed sort of a psychological problem to where I didn't let an imperfection heal and created a large area on my scalp that I have searched for years for to heal and it never did. I tried first cortisone creams, then herbal remedies, vinegar to stop the flaking and itching, saw doctors that told me I had psoriasis on my head, offered several drugs, that I didn't fill the scripts for due to the warnings on the label. I even treated it as psoriasis as a condition, ordered miracle cures on the internet, that didn't cure it. And if I had to count the money I have spent.......oh hundreds of dollars.

It has stolen my self esteem, I haven't worn black in literally almost a decade, and it has made me constantly having to "look after" it for all this time to where it became part of me. (Of course due to the psychological part of the ordeal.) A little over one quarter of my life has been spent searching and never losing hope that something is bound to make it leave.

First, I learned about Urea on the internet, about a month ago, and went to my nearest drugstore to pick up a tube. That just made it kinda heal but kept it inflamed. Even though I saw YOUR ad first on the net, I still went and bought the drugstore version, because it was suppose to help it. But the cream that I ordered from you is the most wonderful stuff ever made on the planet.

I sure wanted to take the time to thank you SO VERY much that really these words can't express how much. If you were in the same room with me I'd hug you!!

May you always continue in your quest to helping people, with unidentifiable skin conditions, and to bless others with your gift of knowledge. And if there is anyway I can help please let me know.

Warm regards to you, and thanking you from the bottom of my heart and soul!!

Hello,

My son has been diagnosed with psoriasis 3 months ago and he has been given 2 creams to use - one for his elbows and shins, the other for his scalp. He has just showed me NEW very red spots on his back, stomach and says he also has them on his backside. It looks as though he has the startings of one on the lower part of his eye and he is only 26. I can't understand why these creams only seem to be making things worse! I've just come across your site and would be very interested in buying your products. Please could you advise me where I can buy your products and if you could please help us with any advise....thank you, Lyn (my son's name is Ben)....thank you so much.

Hello Lyn,

Although you did not mention what the creams were that were given to your son, I would presume that they were types of steroid cream which is the usual prescription that is given in the medical profession for such conditions such as psoriasis. Unfortunately it happens all too often that a steroid cream may suppress symptoms on one part of the body only to have those symptoms appear on other parts of the body. Further, once steroid creams are stopped many people experience what is called a "rebound effect" where the symptoms return only in a worsened state. Because of this as well as the many dangerous side effects that are possible with steroid use, many people are turning to natural remedies such as you and your son. For your son's elbows and shins I would recommend first only cleansing with our All Over Face & Body Wash which is soothing and gentle yet thorough followed by an application of our Double Strength TheraCream twice daily. For the scalp I would recommend using our Herbal Shampoo Treatment whenever he washes. If he also has spots starting under his eye/face I would recommend our Face & Neck TheraCream also twice daily. The body/skin truly responds to health building ingredients. Our products can be purchased right here on our website under "Store" on the navigational bar.

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

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Horrible Thick Psoriasis On My Knees

by Pearl
(Georgia)

Hi Nanette and how are you?

My name is Pearl and I have had horrible thick psoriasis on my knees for over 25 long years. I have to tell you that I have been to so many dermatologists both near and far and have probably used every known steroid on the planet. My psoriasis is so bad that I can't even enjoy my gardening (not for a long time) and to play with my grandchildren on the floor is a near impossibility. I am truly fed up and need to know if your products would help me get rid of this long time problem. I'm just now turning to natural remedies (I guess better late than never) and I feel nervous and excited at the same time. Looking forward to your soon advice....Pearl

Response to Thick Psoriasis On My Knees
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hi Pearl,

You have certainly had to deal with your psoriasis condition for a long time. Unfortunately, so many folks like yourself, have gone to dermatologist after dermatologist without having their condition taken care of or at least improved. It's especially troubling when psoriasis or any condition hinders your daily activities and prevents you from enjoying life's simple pleasures. I'm thrilled that you are now seeking the results that natural remedies such as what we offer, can provide.

Because psoriasis can be very thick, encrusted scales usually located on the knees, elbows and scalp areas (but not limited to these only), a double strength formula will be needed for you. Here is my recommendation for you and YOU WILL start to see great results rather quickly. Remember that as the body responds to the wholesome foods we eat, the skin will respond to the natural and health building ingredients found in our products.

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 on your knees. Further, it will add much needed moisture to your skin which is so necessary in the repair process. Please note that 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 and in some skin cases, causes it!

2) 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 will begin to see a dramatic response to your psoriasis condition.

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

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Response to Psoriasis On Scalpl and Dry Face
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Dear Jamie,

Thank you for contacting me with your question and concerns. Our number one product for the scalp is our HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT which works to repair and restore the scalp 7 layers down. I have seen many case scenarios where the scalp has been so badly damaged, burned, thinned and split open by meds/steroids that you would think that nothing could help. But given the chance with the proper natural ingredients, the body begins to mend. Consistency will also be important as repair is being made. If your problem is more severe, I would recommend partnering the shampoo with our DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM to be placed on your scalp the night before washing. This will greatly unpack any dry hardened cells to help restore moisture and balance.

Concerning the dryness on your face, it may very well be the result of your present shampoo affecting the delicate facial skin as you rinse off and the suds run down the face area. Our FACE & NECK THERACREAM will work quickly to repair this delicate area of the body.

As an internal recommendation, I would further consider the INTESTINAL BOWEL CLEANSER which will help to remove toxic debris - including lingering steroids in your bloodstream and parasites (which can either cause or aggravate conditions). I would also recommend our GREEN POWERHOUSE for the high nutrition (unmatched anywhere) that this powerful product offers.

This is my complete recommendation at this point but please start on the products you feel most comfortable with and you can certainly proceed from there. I know this program will help restore your health and please feel free to contact me with any further questions you may have.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

Hello Janet,

While your problem could be systemic, what most people in the medical field don't realize is that the majority of the products on the market today are the wrong Ph for the scalp. In fact, most are too alkaline and range as high as 9 to 11 Ph. The scalp is approximately 4.5 to 5.5 Ph and needs to be cleansed with health building ingredients that are the correct Ph. I would highly recommend first applying our Double Strength TheraCream coupled with our Herbal Shampoo Treatment for gentle yet thorough cleansing. Many of our customers who have had similar symptoms have received excellent results.

Please keep me posted on your progress Janet.

Psoriasis On My Elbow

by Colleen T.
(USA)

I had psoriasis on my elbow and have used a steroid cream for several years. It was a viscous cycle! My elbow got red, scaly and sore. When I used steroid creams, it went away but when I stopped the cream it came back. That’s when I went online and found your product – "Double Strength Cream" and have been using it for about two weeks. I am amazed that within two days my elbow was clear! And I can use this cream every day, so now I can avoid the “waiting” for the next episode of irritation. Thank you so much for helping me end this horrible cycle!!!

P.S. Why don’t dermatologists know about your products? The next time I see my dermatologist I will taking my Double Strength Cream to show her and recommend it to her patients.

Response To: Psoriasis On Knees, Elbows And Scalp
by: Nanette From Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Andrew,

Prescription creams for psoriasis such as hydrocortisone and other types of steroid creams, fail to repair the skin and at best, may at times simply alleviate the symptoms temporarily.....but this comes with a large price in the form of 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. Recent studies further reveal changes in the shape or location of body fat (especially in your face, neck, back, and waist), increased acne or facial hair, menstrual problems and impotence. Not only this, but steroid use almost always produces a "rebound effect" of the very symptoms you are trying to get rid of!

My strong recommendation for your knees and elbows is to 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 on your knees. Further, it will add much needed moisture to your skin which is so necessary in the repair process. Please note that 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 and in some skin cases, causes it!

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 thicker scales that form with psoriasis as well as the 7 layers of skin and begins to unpack the dry, damaged cells lifting condition them to the surface while filling the cells below with much needed moisture.
For your scalp, I strongly recommend the following: At night before bedtime, rub in our DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM into the parts of the scalp affected. Allow the cream to absorb overnight into the 7 layers of scalp tissue.

Next, wash their hair and scalp with our HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT which is hypo-allergenic and filled with nutrients. These 2 products, together, will unpack dry skin cells in the deepest part of the scalp and restore much needed moisture and regain a healthy balance once again. They will also stop any itching and provide anti bacterial protection while working. Once your symptoms cease, you need only use the HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT to maintain a healthy balance on your scalp and hair.

Please keep me posted on your progress Andrew. Also, please note that we refer all of our International customers to our sister website at: www.aim2health.com where you can order all of the same products as are available on this website.

Psoriasis sufferer now for 55 years. Treated with steroid creams for years, then puva light treatment for 8 yrs. That gave me a life free of psoriasis for about 5 yrs after I stopped the prolonged treatment. Damaged skin now and thinned. Have stopped all steroid cream usage but my legs, arms etc. are now in a sorry state. Just using doublebase gel as a moisturiser and using Unguentum M as a bathing solution. I would love my life back again,can you help please? Tried all types of foods spices etc to no avail.

Hello Ron,

I totally understand your frustration as I have spoken to and helped many psoriasis sufferers like yourself who have also endured this challenging condition for years and years. Unfortunately you are also experiencing one of the many potential side effects of steroid use which is thinning of the skin. I would highly recommend first cleansing with our All Over Face & Body Wash followed by an application of our Double Strength TheraCream twice daily. This double the strength cream has the capability to penetrate the thicker scales of psoriasis as well as the 7 layers of skin to provide much needed moisture and restore balance. Remember that the body/skin has a great propensity to restore given the right health building ingredients even after many years of suffering.

Please keep me posted on your progress Ron.

Warm Regards,
Nanette

My Scalp Psoriasis Of 4 Years

by Rachel
(London UK)

Hi Nanette,
I have had scalp psoriasis for 3 or 4 years now.
Tried natural(essential oils)& when that didn't work tried allopathic shampoos/creams and they only worked for a short time. I had scabs on both sides above the ears for a long time but now the scabs are less. The problem now is very dry skin on the margin line all across from one ear to the other. In some places on the forehead( looks like the picture of the person on your site with bad dandruff). Recently it has also spread to under my eyebrows. It also gets sore behind my ears.
I would really appreciate your advice on which products to use & what to do.
Many thanks.
from Rachel

Response To Scalp Psoriasis
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hi Rachel,

From what you've told me, you have actively tried to find a natural remedy for your scalp psoriasis which seems to have spread somewhat onto your face just under your eyebrows. Your description shows how scalp psoriasis can branch over to the hairline and ear area. I will recommend several very effective products that we carry that will play a vital role in your recovery.

First, you will want to apply our DOUBLE STRENGTH THERACREAM everywhere you are experiencing your symptoms. This specially formulated cream penetrate the thicker skinned areas on the body such as the scalp and ear area reaching down to the 7 layers of skin to unpack the dry damaged cells that have accumulated and it adds much needed moisture for rapid skin repair. I suggest applying this twice daily.

You will want to couple this with our HERBAL SHAMPOO TREATMENT as this too will repair any scalp symptoms you are experiencing as well as restore the natural PH of the scalp and hair. This is quite important to having a healthy scalp.

As a final suggestion, to help take care of the dryness just under your eyebrow area I would recommend using our FACE & NECK THERACREAM as the skin on the face is much thinner than the rest of the body and needs a more delicate cream. Apply a thin coat twice daily to repair this area.

Please let me know how you progress Rachel and don't hesitate to contact me with any further questions you may have.

Warm Regards,
Nanette
