Catherine passed the 5th month milestone and now she is officially in the 6th month. So far, we have seen slow and steady progress with some drawbacks. Her legs, arms and torso are showing improvements. Right now the major problem area is her face. In this month, we noticed that flare ups now occur weeks apart and some red spots are finally fading. We are no longer using antihistamine and we are tapering off moisturizers. Recent evidence shows that moisturizer withdrawal is essential for TSW recovery . Time flies! I hope we can see the light at the end of the tunnel soon.
Catherine is a brave girl going through Topical Steroid Withdrawal. The goal of this blog is to raise awareness about Topical Steroid Addiction and Withdrawal.
