Problem Itchy Skin

by Cindy Lopez

Hi I'm Cindy. I have for a long time itching in my face, chin, forehead, ears and hair and also on my chest and itchy back. On my face I have bumps or pimples that itch a lot and my face gets red. I was prescribed hydrocortisone and other creams for the body. I also have dandruff but since I put the hydrocortisone cream which is 2.5% I don't know how to wash it off and my rash is still inflamed.

Hello Cindy,

First let me start by explaining that hydrocortisone cream and other steroidal creams carry with them a vast number of possible side effects. 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. Unfortunately, many times the symptoms return stronger than they were before treatment first began. Therefore, choosing natural products to help your skin condition is wise. First, I would highly recommend cleansing with our All Over Face & Body Wash as this will help cleanse the skin of excess dry, damaged cells and begin to add much needed moisture to your skin. You see, most of the cleansers/soaps on the market are either too alkaline or too acidic and actually destroy the natural pH of the skin. This was can be used on your face as well as your body. Next I highly recommend applying our Face & Neck TheraCream twice daily and for your body area I recommend our My Daughter's Hand & Body TheraCream also twice daily. For your dandruff I recommend our Herbal Shampoo Treatment that will help to stop the itching as well as restore balance back to your scalp.

Please keep me posted on your progress Cindy.

Warm Regards,
