Christie's Story

By Christie (USA)

"I'm getting my life back! I can laugh again. I can leave the house without thinking I'm a monster."

"I can wear my wedding rings again!"

"I can say without a doubt, this is the only product that I know makes a difference."

"But I could never say one thing made a difference until I found JooMo. JooMo works."

Use of Topical and Oral Steroids induced eczema in my skin

I used oral prednisone that kicked up eczema for me in 2018. I started using (sparingly) trimacinalone and used Protopic (Tacroliminus). I also used Eucrisa on my hands. I used quite a bit of Protopic because the doctor said I could use it daily and long term. In 2019, I did 2 rounds of oral prednisone because my eyes kept swelling. In April 2019, I quit all creams after discovering I had TSW. I’ve always used all natural products and oils, just was too ignorant to realize the meds the doctors were giving me were completely toxic. I now use completely organic makeup and only wash my face with Joomo.

"..I was too ignorant to realise the medication the Doctors were giving me were completely toxic. "

Stopping Steroids made my skin explode and demolished my mental health

After stopping all steroid creams, my skin problems deteriorated very rapidly. I had an initial flare right after I stopped steroid creams. It was immediate and happened within hours. I stayed in this flare for months and slowly started recovering. I flared again at 6 months, primarily on my neck. It burned and I couldn’t move my neck at all. It lasted about 2 months and then started healing again.

My arms, hands, face, neck and ears became extremely painful and the skin started splitting and becoming very sore and itchy. I lived with these horrible symptoms for around 6 months before eventually finding JooMo.

Before starting the plan, the severity of my symptoms (out of 10) were: 

Hands: Burning red hands (9). Itchy hands (10). Swollen raised patches on hands (9).
Arms: itchy (6). Red raised patches (7).
Face: Red inflamed skin (8). Extreme Flaking skin (10) Split corners of mouth (7) Cuts in chin (7)
Neck: Itchy (10). Inflamed red skin (9). Flaking (8). Red raised skin, looked bumpy (8)
Ears: Oozing (8). Flaking (10), Skin splitting (7)

Disruptions to Normal Life: I quit my job to go through TSW. My mental health was demolished. I have always been a happy, positive person. I turned into a negative, angry person. This has been the absolute worst thing I’ve ever experienced. My mental breakdown has been terrible. I have PTSD, I hardly leave the house. I was home bound for 2 months. I am slowly coming out of it. I am 11 months TSW and hope to find myself again. Feeling like you are ugly and disgusting can really take a toll when you experience it for so long. I probably need therapy to be honest.

Frustration at trying SO many 'solutions' led me to trying JooMo

While searching for the answer to my problems, I tried a huge amount of different things; I went on special diets, tried tons of supplements, red light therapy, LDN, etc. However, none of them worked, which left me incredibly frustrated.

This is something that a huge amount of Topical Steroid Withdrawal sufferers go through. There are *so many* false-dawns where you think that you’ve found the solution, but very soon you realise your skin isn’t improving. 

On a Topical Steroid Withdrawal Facebook group with 10,000 members, I read some wonderful testimonials from fellow sufferers who were using a product from a revolutionary new company called JooMo. I read their science, and for the first time, it all made sense. One of the Co-Founders of JooMo had struggled with exactly the same condition that we all had suffered with, so the family set out to invent a product which enhanced the skin’s natural immune defences, to solve this problem for millions of sufferers around the world. I took a leap of faith and enrolled on their 4-Month Skin Recovery Plan.

"...I went on special diets, tried tons of supplements, red light therapy, LDN, etc. However, none of them worked, which left me incredibly frustrated."

After 4 months using JooMo my skin is normal!!

Figure 5: Graph showing severity (out of 10) ratings for Christie’s symptoms before (blue) and after 4 months of using JooMo (orange). This is for just hands and arms. 

By the time I reached 4 months, my skin had improved incredibly. I filled in a questionnaire at 4 Months using JooMo, and it asked how severe my symptoms were before the plan, compared to now. 10/10 would be the worst and 0/10 was no symptom. I answered: 

Hands: Burning red hands (0). Itchy hands (2-now just index knuckle and thumb knuckles). Swollen raised patches on hands (0).

Arms: itchy (0). Red raised patches (0). THIS SKIN IS NORMAL!!!!!

Face: Red inflamed skin (3). Flaking skin (6) Split corners of mouth (0) Cuts in chin (2)

Neck: Itchy (3). Inflamed red skin (3). Flaking (3). Red raised skin, looked bumpy (3)

Ears: Oozing (0). Flaking (3), Skin splitting (2)

These symptoms have improved hugely. The graph to the left shows these. 

Flares: Since starting JooMo I have not flared at all. The last one was in October, and I started the plan in November.

"My deep itch also improved a lot! Before the plan I would itch every night..... By six weeks... I itched for a short time on my hands every other night."

By 4 months many of my symptoms, such as itching and split skin, had disappeared

Itching/Itching Attacks: Itching attacks happened every night while I slept. My neck itched SO BAD! My elbows creases itched a lot as well. Hands itched during the day. Severity (10). Now, the itch on the arms is ZERO. I’m so thrilled about this. Even the elephant skin is gone. My hands now is minimally, just on the knuckles (3). My neck itch has reduced a lot. I have gradually gotten better over the 4 months. Itch today on neck is probably a 2 or 3.

Dryness/Flakeyness of Skin: The dryness got worse using JooMo. Sometimes I would skip a day. My hands got so dry (10) I could barely move them. There were a couple of times I applied lotion, but quickly discovered that was a bad idea. Within 10 weeks though, my hands were pretty much healed. Amazing! My arms took about 6 weeks. Again, Praise the Lord! My neck and face are my worst area. I’m still working on that area after 16 weeks. It is super dry, but has improved. I would say dryness on the face started at a 10 and is now probably a 6. I still flake on my face like twice I day. My neck is better and the skin is slowly improving. Not quite as flakey as before.

Sleep Quality: My sleep has been better than most going thru TSW. I would take benedryl each night for months. I would sleep 6-7 hours. Before starting the plan, itch was a 10 on neck. It would wake me up at night and I was always surprised that I wasn’t bleeding when I woke up. Now the itch is like a 2 or 3 and it barely wakes me up. I sleep 8-9 hours now.

How it feels using JooMo: When I first starting using JooMo, I started on my hands and arms. My face was so raw I was afraid. It burned like mad on my hands. (10) They were so red and raw I could only leave it on for a few seconds. However, after about 4 days, I could already tell a difference. Even though it still burned, I kept going. The pain slowly started going away (0). After 2 weeks on my hands and arms, I started on my face and neck. Again, it burned like hell (10). I got it on and got it off as fast as possible. It would sting for about 5 minutes after. Even though it was only on a few seconds, it still worked. Now I look forward to it. It stings a little, but is totally manageable. (3)

"(Before the plan) Itching attacks happened every night while I slept. My neck itched SO BAD!

"Now, the itch on the arms is ZERO. I'm so thrilled about this. Even the elephant skin is gone."

My skin and mental health was transformed by finding JooMo

Disruptions to Normal Life: I quit my job to go through TSW. My mental health was demolished. I have always been a happy, positive person. I turned into a negative, angry person. This has been the absolute worst thing I’ve ever experienced. My mental breakdown has been terrible. I have PTSD, I hardly leave the house. I was home bound for 2 months. I am slowly coming out of it. I am 11 months TSW and hope to find myself again. Feeling like you are ugly and disgusting can really take a toll when you experience it for so long. I probably need therapy to be honest.

Mental and Physical Pain: My physical pain during flares was a 10. The burning and tight skin was awful. Not being able to move my neck was so painful. (10). Tears and tears and tears have been shed over this painful condition. My pain now is minimal. Sometimes my skin is so tight and can be painful to open my mouth or smile, but it is improving. (3)

How do you feel after using JooMo? I’m getting my life back! I can laugh again. I can leave the house without thinking I’m a monster. I can pay the cashier and not be completely ashamed of my hands. I can wear my wedding rings again. I can turn my head to back out of my driveway. I can wear short sleeves again after not being able to for a year. I can wear clothes other than 100% cotton. I have hope!

I have been promoting your product on TSW facebook groups. I can say without a doubt, this is the only product that I know makes a difference. I have been on special diets, tons of supplements, red light therapy, LDN, etc. But I could never say one thing made a difference until I found JooMo. JooMo works. It’s slow progress, but I’m a believer.

"I quit my job to go through TSW. My mental health was demolished... I have PTSD.
