I’ve been battling this with my almost 22 month old since she recovered from a kidney infection (and antibiotics) at 18 months. She always had some issues that we managed with diet, but understandably, the drugs made it worse. I don’t regret doing them for a second, tho. Shes pretty much AIP and I’ve been supplementing with fish and borage oil, as well as trying to get fish in, and my kids don’t use sunscreen. It’s helped. We just seem to have a small hump left and I’ve been trying to figure it out. An ND suggested a natural antihistamine which may be helping some, since the waking and scratching, which have made our nights miserable for months now, is getting better. Since it’s a hot summer we’ve fallen away from bone broth, but I have a ton, so I’ll bring that back in. Thanks for this post! I may go for that eczema cream, too!
I have a lot of respect for Dr. Peter Lio — at least he is trying to learn about and raising awareness about TSW — but this article is wrong on a couple fronts, already pointed out in other comments. This article puts the blame on patients for misuse of topical steroids, but the reality is that many doctors (the majority it seems) either don’t know about or don’t believe TSW is real, and they ignore the risks of steroids noted in the drug inserts. Many patients end up with TSW after relying on their doctors’ guidance. We did.
okay but honestly. 213 lbs to 175 lbs and counting. I didn’t realize I actually looked this different. For people just tuning in, I’ve been following the autoimmune protocol diet as well as cutting out all sugar for the time being, including fruits. I’m never hungry. I drink green juice for breakfast, eat a huge salad at lunch with lots of fresh organic veggies and mainly fish, and eat fish and vegetables for dinner. I also haven’t worked out at all, but I’m also going through topical steroid withdrawal so all my energy is going towards healing for the time being. I have never been able to lose weight before and now it’s literally falling off of me. Just goes to show that you must be diligent to get any results! Here’s to healing and health!
