People are becoming increasingly aware about the problems associated with long term topical steroid use, and the equally problematic issues of ‘Topical Steroid Withdrawl’.
Indeed, it was this very matter that led to the foundation of JooMo – our mum and co-founder Linda Russell got prescribed steroids and it made her skin problems ten times worse.
A large amount of Doctors don’t understand the microbiome, and when faced with a skin problem they don’t understand, they throw drugs like steroid creams at it. Other Doctors refuse to accept that TSW exists at all. It 100% does!
Small children and babies who have eczema are commonly put on steroids, because for Doctors this is the only way they know how to ‘treat’ it. This can lead to a cycle of steroid use which can last for years. Steroids can appear to have given an ‘instant’ fix, but nothing could be further from the truth. Behind the scenes, long term use can seriously damage the body and microbiome. If left alone, a number of babies would grow out of it.
In this video section we will guide you through the Topical Steroid Withdrawal recovery process and help you understand more about whole microbiome health!
