This is a REALLY quick blog to share a petition created by my lovely friend Sofia who is also going through topical steroid withdrawal (TSW). There is currently very little real scientific research going on and we need this urgently!
If you don’t know what TSW is, you can dive down a rabbit hole with my other blogs on the subject or read my new and growing TSW FAQ here.
But basically, in a nutshell, it is when the topical steroids prescribed to heal our eczema has created an all body iatrogenic condition which can last for months of years as the skin and body organs heal and begin to do their jobs properly again. It is painful, brutal and mine has lasted 2.5 years and counting.
Doctors to not recognise it is a problem.
Dermatologist do not recognise it is even a thing.
We are all fighting to heal with little or no medical support. This has to change! We need research to discover this happens to some of us and how to prevent it happening in the future.

Please take just a few moments to sign this petition. It would mean so much to me.
Thank you all in advance.
