I'm a 56 year old woman and have been suffering with dermatomiositis for the past 7 years with no relief. I've had 2 biopsies during the past 7 years and none of the harsh drugs the rheumotoligist prescribes help at all. This autoimmune condition has only affected my skin which in itself is rare since this is primarily a muscle disease. My scalp has been the target of this crazy condition and has ended my career & any close relationships since burning inflammation, itching and needle pricking sensations have dominated. There is no dryness or flaking, yet I do have a definite 'tightness'. At one time early on, a steroid cream, clobetasol, helped for only a short while. Have you heard of anyone with this problem that had been helped with your products? I have spent so much $$ on different products and concoctions that I am skeptical but I am willing to try.

Response to: Dermatomyositis
by: Nanette fro Skin-Remedies.com


Dermatomyositis is a very devastating disease that certainly has a profound impact on daily life. For our website viewers I would like to share directly from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dermatomyositis that "Dermatomyositis (DM) is a connective-tissue disease related to polymyositis (PM) that is characterized by inflammation of the muscles and the skin. While DM most frequently affects the skin and muscles, it is a systemic disorder that may also affect the joints, the esophagus, the lungs, and, less commonly, the heart." That shared, we do have a number of customers who have written in and provided us with positive feedback as the our products giving them quite a bit of relief from the skin and scalp symptoms that can accompany this disease. While everyone responds at different rates and different levels, it is encouraging to say that the skin truly responds to health building ingredients much like the body responds to nutritive foods. Please feel free to contact me with any other questions and please keep me posted on your progress.

Warm Regards,
