First of all i need to thank you for a very nice website. Glad to see that there are others out there who wants to get rid go this stupid “disease”.
Have a couple of questions for you:
- I use a fungoral cream everyday which looks to keep it at bay and use a hydrocortisone cream when it flare up. I know thats not recommended as it thins out the skin, but there are some creams called Protopic and Elidel that doesn’t do that but have the same effect as the hydrocortisone creams, any experience with these two medications?
-Whats your experience with SD and sunlight? The doctors i have seen all recommend to spend time in the sun as it will help apparently.
-What about the wintertime, does it get worse then? Same doctors say it usually get worse in the winter time and better in the summertime. Must be the lack of sunlight and colder,less moist air in the wintertime?
Also ready that some have completed eliminated SD by taking three medical peels. That of course “burns” off the top layer of the skin for newer more healthy skin to come up,its really a cosmetic treatment to get better and younger looking skin, but perhaps it can “burn” off all the yeast in the skin that caused SD. Ever heard of that?
