Face Dermatitis

by Kate

I have been searching for a remedy for the skin problem I have. But whenever I found info on dermatitis, most of them just mention allergy or stress etc. But I happen to find your post mentioning special note of dermatitis due to the prolong use of topical steroid, and the rebound reaction that happens when you stop using them. That's exactly my situation. I am suffering face dermatitis upon quitting the night cream I have been using for a year. Any suggestion to treat my skin back to normal? Thanks!

Hello Kate,

It is so sad and unfortunate that the medical profession does not make the side effects of steroid and hydrocortisone use known to their patients. For our website viewers I will say that: steroid 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. Unfortunately, many times the symptoms return stronger than they were before treatment first began.

Rest assured Kate that the skin has a great propensity to repair given the proper health building ingredients. I would first highly recommend cleansing with our gentle yet thorough All Over Face & Body Wash as this will begin the restorative process and help protect the pH of your skin. Next apply our Face & Neck TheraCream twice daily to bring moisture down to the 7 layers of skin and bring much needed balance back. Patience and consistency will yield great results.

Please keep me posted on your progress Kate.

Warm Regards,
